    Just wondering if you've heard anything about correcting the vertical shift of the Panny RP91 for Pioneer RPTVs. I know its a monitor issue, but figured I'd post here as well.
    I love the 91, but the shift is getting to me. Especially with 1.85:1 material.
    Any news would be great!

    I haven't noticed a pronounced vertical shift on my RP91/Elite 610 combo. I put in Avia to check it last night and found that (RP91 in progressive mode, TV locked in FULL) my overscan on a 4:3 image was about 4% top and 2% bottom. Not really a large shift. The sides were about 2-3% I think.
    Turning off the progressive mode, the RP91 in interlaced and TV in NORMAL gave much more overscan, closer to 5%, except on the right side where it was less than 1%. [​IMG] I don't really use that much anymore though.

    I have this exact problem with my Pioneer SD-532-HD5. I've noticed it only happens with progressive scan. If I press the prog-scan button on the player and use the interlaced output the shift corrects itself. I don't believe it is an overscan problem, but an issue with the way the set handles the 31K scanning fequency. Who knows I'm still looking for a fix.

    Yup, I definitely think its a 31k scanning frequency problem, as well. It seems though that there should be a vertical position option in the service mode, that's what's pissing me off. It would be such an easy fix.
    It doesn't seem like its cutting much of 1:85 material, but it must be, considering how obvious it is on 2:35 material. I'll have to switch off the progressive and check the interlaced for 1:85 material; I haven't tried that yet.
    Frustrating though. [​IMG]
