    In the episode "Lucy Meets the Queen" around the 9:30 mark, when Lucy and Ethel are trying to get an autograph, the frame starts to jitter. While watching in still frame mode, only Lucy and Ethel are shaking. Can someone please freeze frame this scene on their players and let me know if I got a bad copy or not? Thanks.

    My copy does the same thing. For me, it was at marker 9:26 when Lucy and Ethel are trying to get "someone's" autograph and they are at the back of the crowd. As soon as the camera changes positions (to a closer one), Lucy and Ethel jitter. I freeze framed this point and for about 5-6 frames, Lucy and Ethel and the women wearing black to the right of Ethel jitter. Then, everything goes back to normal. Anyone else?

    Nick, what model player do you have? Is it progressive scan?

    I'm not sure. I know next to nothing about this kind of thing. It's a Toshiba. How do I check if it's progressive scan?
