    I've had this thing for about 5 weeks, and I'm pretty disappointed...grainy and so contrasty that some scenes are almost unwatchable.
    I've played with the menus so much that I think I have them all memorized.
    Sure am glad I saved my old Sony 570; I'm going to try taking this one in for repair (should be under warranty, I hope).
    I noticed a similar thread a while back:

    and I'm starting to believe there was a bad batch of these players.
    Anyone else having problems like these?

    OK, pulled the Toshiba 50H81 out from the entertainment center and hooked the Sony back up, and I see the same softness, so it can't be the player.

    My next trial is to replace the $95 Monster component video cables.....hope that works, because I don't want it to be the TV...

    Randy,

    Not wanting to be insulting... you did switch progressive on right??? ( I know when I first received my rp 91 I had the same problem in interlaced) plus on the 50h81 is there colourstream and colourstream pro inputs??

    Actually, it turned out to be those stinking Monster component video cables:

    Looks better than it did when brand new (well, that was only 5 weeks ago)...I really didn't want to take it back, as I depend on the 4:3 scaling.
    Cheers
