    Hey guys,

    I just purchased this dvd player due to all the good reviews at this board lately.

    But for some reason, while watching Jason X, the player processes it as a progressive 'video' signal instead of 'film'. This causes a slight blur durring certain scenes, and just doesn't feel right.

    For example, durring dialogue scenes, people's mouths don't seem to move at exactly the right speed (Seem a little slow). Similar problems when a camera pans, etc.

    All my player settings are correct, I believe. I have it set for a 16x9 TV, and the player auto detects "film" or "video" sources. I've tried manually selecting "film" as a source, but this causes pixelated areas durring movement (looks like big scan-lines).

    Other movies such as the "Thing" and "Jason Goes to Hell" are processed as "film" sources, so I don't know why JX would be any different. For the record, I do own other movies other then horror... And I'll go through more movies tonight to see if I notice it anywhere else. [​IMG]

    Are there any compatibility issues anybody knows about? Is my player just whacked? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have a new Panny Widescreen tv, btw.

    The problem you have with this DVD player is that it causes jittery movement in some movies. This happened with my XV-N50 that I am going to return. I think this happens to this year's JVC DVD models.

    Sounds like Jason X may be one of those DVDs that are improperly flagged. Perhaps it was video edited and hence not correctly setup for 3:2 pulldown.
