I hate them with a passion. Drives me insane, too. If you reset your box back to normal settings, that stops?
They stopped when I did. And the resolution adjustments occurred pre-VP, so it is the panel that struggles. I'm connected via HDMI now, and don't remember if there was a problem when I used component.
