So after all the recommendations here I figured I'd give the Panasonic a whirl after the demise of my Sony. But after hooking it up, the picture is awful---there's a fine vertical ribbing in the picture no matter what disc I put in. It's like everyone is corduroy. I've messed around in the menu but don't see anything that seems to help this. Defective? Or am I doing something wrong? Anyone run across this on their RP56? I'm using progressive, component out into a Toshiba 65H80 16:9 set.
