    Toddj can you repeat the problem or is it random? I have not encountered that problem and was wondering what the circumstances were and if I could duplicate the problem on my unit.

    Todd, what video connection are you using? Composite, S-Vid or Component?

    DennisFawcett, you are using the S-Video connection? Just want to clarify beacause both players you mention are progressive scan and I want to make sure you're not using component connection.

    [​IMG] hi,i am using component cables,that is the only way to get
    the 480 or 520 p signal to a hd moniter.the toshibas call it
    color stream imputs.with the toshiba 3800 you can switch from
    interlaced to progressive signal with the remote on the sony
    i have now you cannot.someone can correct me if i am wrong
    but i believe the progressive input bypasses the comb filter
    thus a more pure signal from the imput device.

    another problem i have is that the menu screens don't always indicate which item is being selected. However, this rarely happens....

    I solved the white flash problem by trying the Sony NS715P. See my thread link above. No dropouts or white flashes whatsoever using S-video. This behavior has been seen on the Tosh SD-K510, SD-2800, and SD-4700.
