I had a unique problem with my DPS 8.3 and wanted to see if anyone else had this issue. The player is approximately 1 month old and has been working great up until yesterday. Got home after work and put in the 2nd disc of LOTR, about 2 minutes into the disc, artifacts start showing up all over the screen and the picture becomes highly pixelated. Not only that but when I stopped the dvd, the screen still gently flickered. I unhooked my component connection, reconfigured via an s-video, now the movie looks even worse. Turned off everything and turned it back on about an hour later, everything was fine, however the picture still looks a little pixelated to me. Anyone have this happen and more importantly does this appear to be a problem with the processing chip? Thanks.
