How is the Blue Pic Quality on the new BD370 2009 model?
Th LGs seem to be the only ones with all 3, YouTube AND Netflix AND BLue Ray. I really want this. But I am worried about the Picture issues in Blue Ray.
I have read in some reviews of its sister last years model that the older model 2008 had problems on BLue Rays?
Is it fixed now? Could someone that has one please check? If you dont have the HQV test CD can you test with the listed movies and report back please. I am sure many are wondering.
Here is the link to the list of issues from last years sister model in the cnet review:

List of Issues in last years mode. No test reported yet on this years, but I assume they might be using the same Blue Ray Chip for the 2009 models.
1. HQV Test Blue Ray
"The BD300 failed the test--the most detailed sections looked strobelike, and showed no detail where there should be several individual lines"
"panning shot across Raymond James Stadium--betraying some slight moire"
"It also did poorly on video-based jaggies tests, showing tons of jaggies on a test pattern with three pivoting lines, as well as a test with a rotating white line."
2. Ghost Rider
"First up was the end of chapter 6 in Ghost Rider, and the BD300 performed well--we couldn't make out any moire in the grille of the RV as the camera pulls away."
3. Mission Impossible 3
"chapter 8 of Mission Impossible: III and again the BD300 performed well with no jaggies in the stairs in the background. "
4. Tony Bennett
"We also looked at some of the video-based portions of Tony Bennett: American Classic. Here, the BD300 didn't do so well. For example, at the beginning of chapter 7, we could see plenty of jaggies on the opening graphics and clapperboard, as well as on the shirts of the dancers that followed. The jaggies showed up again in chapter 14, as we could see them in several time in the dancers' canes."
Also if anyone is seeing any Jaggies on ANY movie. Do they go away if you switch to 24p mode?
