    I bought a Toshiba 50HDX82 about a year ago. Now I have returned to HTF to ask questions about my surround sound system (on a UPS truck somewhere out there!), and I also have a question about my TV.

    When I play DVDs, on solid colors, mostly light solid colors, I get.. lines. Vertical and horizontal lines. Like a very fine coordinate grid I guess. I'm having difficulty describing them.

    My DVD player is an old JVC (XV-S40 I think, but don't quote me). It's not progressive scan, but it is hooked up through component. Is this a progressive scan issue? Is there some setting I need to change? Something about 3:2 pulldown or am I on the wrong track? I haven't had a chance to do Avia, but I went through the menu and set everything with my naked eye. Any ideas?

    I have the same set, and I and many other owners of this set see the same issue, which has become known as the "brushed aluminum" effect. Search the Toshiba forum at HomeTheaterSpot.com for many posts on the subject.

    This seems to be my problem. How do I fix it? Call Toshiba?

    I have the same thing on my 42H82. I run all of my S-video components (DVD, Sat, VCR, PS2) through my AV reciever. If I turn any of those components off and leave the AVR on, it makes the screen blue and thats when the problem is most noticable.
