    I need help. I have an Infocus SP4805 and a Panny S97 DVD player, both purchased in Seattle. Connected via component. I can't play PAL discs. I see the disc menu come up and is selectable. However, it appears as tho the picture is refreshing at the wrong rate. I get about half the screen filled, and the picture is jumping around.
    I've searched everywhere for answers. I've even spent a day going thru the AVS Forum SP4805 threads. What am I missing? The SP4805 is supposed to auto-detect PAL. The manual states there is a menu option for manually setting the disc type, but the option is not present for my SP4805.

    I am assuming my issue is with the projector. Am I wrong about that?

    I figured it out. Step 1: S97 must be set to 480P out; Step 2: set S97 Transfer Mode to Auto2, which accepts 30FPS signals; Step 3: do happy dance.
