This is repeatable by rewinding the video and playing it again. Both times this issue showed up in outdoor scenes. My TV is a basic Sharp TV with no fancy postprocessing that I can control. Its a Class level generic set. The only automatic anything is an autobacklight dimmer that I turned off. Any help in isolating the issue would be a big help. My player is a Sony BDP-360 with the latest firmware. Perhaps a failing HDMI cable or setting in the player?
Welcome to AVSForum.
A new cable would be the easiest thing to try and I would do that first.
Otherwise, I would suspect the Sharp is in some goofy mode. The problem is always the solarization effect in a low-contrast background like the sky?
Have you used a calibration disc? Could be that getting the basic settings into non-default shape could reduce or eliminate the issue.
