    I'm seeing a problem when playing my rp82 in progressive mode, where things that are very dark (a black coat is the most notorious I've seen) loose their texture and become solid black and look very saturated.
    Thanks to a reply by someone else to my previous post, I found that that this is due to the IRE level set to 0 instead of 7.5 on progressive mode. I verified it by setting the interlaced output of the rp82 to "darker" which is actually 0 IRE and reproducing the problem.
    The bad thing is that I cannot make it look right no matter how much I crank the brightnes (not the picture) up and I'm calibrating the set for the progressive DVD player using S&V HT Tune Up disk.
    Anyone has any idea what I can do to address this issue?
    By the way, the line doubler in the new Panasonic RPTV's seems to be very very decent because I have yet to see a difference between the RP82's reputable progressive output and the interlaced output on my TV. Actually, progressive is the worse right now because of the problem mentioned above.
    Thanks in advance.

    Try posting at panny.tv and see what kind of reply you get. I can't really comment on what you're seeing despite pretty much have the same equipment. I find black levels are fine on the television with a progressive input. I quickly used a THX disc to set the television and I rarely (if ever) have the player interlaced.

    Manuel,
    I have the same player (Rp82) and the same RPTV (53wx42). While watching Thirteen Days last night (good movie) I noticed this exact same problem. All of those sleek 1960's suits kept losing their texture and turning into a blotch of color. I tried all the avenues reported here to fix the problem, but none worked. How did you fix the same problem? I think the TV and DVD player is great and I haven't seen this issue on over a dozen other DVD's I've played on my system.
    -Bill
