Greetings All, I'm brand new as a member of the forum, but have been reading posts for a little while now. Last week I purchased a Sony DA5ES and a Toshiba 4700 DVD player (partly due to the wonderful feedback from this very forum!), and love both units. I've recently noticed something that has me a little concerned about the receiver, and want to know if anyone else has noticed the same thing, or if I'm over-reacting. I've connected the DVD player, a Playstation 2 and a 5.1 RCA DirecTV receiver to the DA5ES, and everything is fine for the PS2 and the DSS receiver. I am, however, noticing some degradation with the DVD. I'm getting some "waviness" in the signal, which is especially noticeable when a movie is paused or the wallpaper is displayed. I've got everything connected with S-Video cables, and I've tried all of the "obvious" fixes (i.e. swapping out cables, running the DVD into other source inputs, disconnecting all sources except the DVD, trying different DVDs, etc.) and am getting the same results. When I bypass the receiver and go straight from DVD to TV, the signal is perfect (without the waves). The picture is not unbearable, but I'm wondering if some signal loss is to be expected, or if there might be something wrong with the receiver. Like I said, the DSS and the PS2 look perfect. Any suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
