I have at least five other devices with VUDU players (3 BD players, a Roku 2 and my Xbox 360)--I'll try watching Prometheus on some of them to see whether I see the same banding. I don't normally use the PS3 to watch VUDU, or any other kind of video; mine is a 60GB launch model and a noisy power-hog. I'd usually use a BD player for VUDU and now that it's on Roku I'll use that. I only used the PS3 because I could download 1080p to it and I wanted to play a download to make sure that there were no periods of PQ drop due to fluctuating conditions on my connection to their servers (I was watching on a Friday night).
EDIT: I tried watching it on a few other players: Roku 2, Panasonic BDT220 and Xbox 360. Though I could see some banding here and there if I looked hard, all of them were greatly superior to the PS3. It was interesting to note that they all handled 2:3 pulldown a little differently, with the BD player being the smoothest. In fact, I'd never have noticed the amount of banding that I could see on the BD player at all. I will be using it for VUDU from now on.
