    I just upgraded to a Panasonic RP 62 DVD player to go with my new Mits 48311. The DVD quality is quite noticeably better than my non-progressive scan Toshiba.

    I was watching LOTR Two Towers last night. During a few scenes that are quite stark (almost black and white in look) when there was high contrast and lots of movement I noticed a slight reddish "ring" around the perimeter of the moving object.

    Is this ringing or something totally different? Is it caused by the player or the DVD itself?

    Its not a big thing, just wanted to know.

    ringing is like a halo or outline of an object in white/grey. Generally caused by sharpness set too high, other edge enhancement on the set (your mits has some), or svm being too high. Set yours to 0 or 1 if you can.

    Red outline on one side could be convergence or maybe chroma delay. Do you have avia or video essentials? If not then go get it.
