Hello all. I've had my Sampo for about six months now, and I'm certainly happy with it. However, I've been experiencing a few troublesome issues I'd like to ask other SME-34WHD5 owners about:
- First, the progressive component in is basically unusable. Even after turning the brightness down to 1, the picture is ridiculously blown-out. Even worse, after taking sharpness down to 1, it still appears as if it's set at max. The difference between the component and RGB inputs is night and day -- shouldn't they be roughly equivalent?
- PAL DVDs played through the Skyworth 1050P exhibit very visible (and very annoying) flicker in bright areas -- is this normal on the Sampo, or could it be my Skyworth?
- The extreme left and right of the screen show visible vertical banding -- are other people seeing this?
- This is minor, since I'm eventually going to have to have this thing ISFed, but was your convergence way off when you received your set? Mine certainly seems to be...
I guess that's it. Many thanks to whomever may respond!
