Well, yes, the user can mess things up, of course, but the Lumagen itself is not going to randomly "degrade"; at least I've never experienced that and have owned all the models...

I suspect user error.

I've already concluded that the artifact is in the source...

And if you use the 2.35 Zoom on the 1100ES you use the whole 4096x2160 pixels of the chip when watching a 16x9 film, but if you use the zoom function on a 2.35:1 screen you don´t use the whole chip as you loose many pixels in the black bars.
Where can I get an accurate brightness test pattern for the vw1100es? Also, I'm using "Reference" and most advanced features are turned off. Anything that could be causing me to have to turn down the brightness that I might be overlooking?
