    Hi

    I bought my new Toshiba 50hdx82 about three weeks ago. I have it hooked up to my Bell Express Sat with S video cable. I noticed every time the picture changes I get lines across the screen for a split second, almost like the line doubler doesn't keep up. This does not happen when I play my dvd player. It's a progressive scan hooked up with comp cables. Now that I have close to 100hrs on my rptv, the lines show up occasionally. Is this normal for a break in or is there something wrong with my TV.

    Thanks.

    This sounds like a defect.

    You really have to look for these scan lines, my wife did not notice until a pointed it out to her. I thought maybe since it's a big screen size. I had a tech guy come down but he did not seem to be concerned. I don't think he saw the lines, because it happens so fast. Like I said you really have to look for it.It seems to be easier to see on lighter scenes. But when I play a dvd i don't see any.???
