    I just bought the Denon 2800 and was not aware of the Chroma bug until returning here and reading up a bit on it. The manufacture date on the player states Sept. 2001

    Am I ok? How do I tell if I have the Chroma problem. If I find that I do have it which player should I pick up instead?

    Manual,
    If you do a search for Chroma error most likely dozens of hits will come up.
    I have a Pioneer Elite DVD-37 which is supposed to be the worse and I don't see, my friends don't see it. But many have and do.
    It can be seen in screen shots by various folks. Check out http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/main.html
    The info is under the DVD 'shoot' outs.
    My name is Joe and I have stopped looking for the chroma error[​IMG]

    Simply put: if you see scenes with red in them, and there are honeycomb patterns in the red areas, you're seeing the chroma bug.
