I've had my 27" Sony Wega for almost 2 years ago and have finally diagnosed a weird problem with black level in dark scenes when i'm watching dvd's, especially with the 16x9 squeeze). I bought some relatively cheap component cables when i bought the tv, since this was the first tv i've ever had that had component inputs (i'd always heard that component was better than s-video, even if on a 27" screen i wouldn't get much more out of it). well, last night when it was pitch black inside, i got up close to my tv and changed the inputs on my TV while the different inputs were OFF. My s-video input (switched from my receiver from dreamcast/svhs/dish) was pure black, my composite inputs (playstation and vcr) were pure black, and when i got to my component input (with the DVD player off), the screen was sort of black/blue and there seemed to be alot of low-range interference. what gives? I have never really been that close the tv in the dark before but i don't understand why there seems to be signal interference with the dvd player OFF in the component input. Did i just buy a cheap cable? is the Wega's component input not a very good one? Should i be using s-video? thanks for any info. if i had any more s-video inputs in either the tv (only have one) or my receiver (all out of switched inputs), i'd use my s-video cord but this direct-to-the-tv component hookup shouldn't be looking like this.
