Is that all accurate? If so, the only variable that I can fathom is the screen.
I was referring to another member (borhoram) with regards to his new unit being AVS calibrated and exhibiting the same problem Im seeing. It seems however that those who cannot see this phenomena or dont have it on their units are happy to discount its existence. Not sure if youve read the last few pages but let me repeat my troubleshooting procedures for the nth time;-
Tried movies using my Toshiba XE1 HD-DVD (DVD and HD-DVD).
Tried movies using my PS3 (BR and DVD).
Tried TV via my Beyonwiz HD PVR.
All above units connected via HDMI through a Yamaha RXV3800, and then also direct to the VW60.
HDMI cables replaced with different lengths and brands. Toshiba and a standard DVD player also tested via component.
Power taken from different powerpoint in other part of house. Tested running through a Belkin PF40 power station. Tested running direct from fuse box.
The screen is an Elite Screens 92' fixed screen. It is NOT the problem, as Pj has been taken down and tested on a bare white wall. Alos, I have various screen samples from three different reputable manufacturers here in Australia and problem still exists.
And finally unit has been replaced New unit exhibits the same problems.
Its obvious there is definately some sort of image processing defect with the Sony - it may however be attributable to a "bad batch". I am going to try a DVDO processor (VP20) over the next few days and see if that has any influence.
