The player is mighy fine playing DVD-A reg. cd's, and non-progressive mode DVD's. I cannot seem to get it to function normally playing in any progressive mode I choose. I have a Panny 47". I verified that it's not the cables because upon switching back to 525i I get no 'shimmering' on the screen. Is this a sign of a defect. Please tell me no cause it was the last one at Best Buy for $199! I put in The Haunting and it shimmered (silver slivers??) on faces and light areas of the screen. Anyone have this problem? thanks!
