Yes same problem. Starts out with little distortion at top then turns into square blocks (see photo below), Then blocks get taller and finally screen goes black. About 30 mins this last time.
This is happening with the DVD "Hit Man". I just changed DVDs to "Sahara" and it is happening but with out the squares at the top. This time the image shifted to the bottom of the screen then finally went black around 20-30 minutes.
This is with the Setup menu 7. Hardware Setup- 5. HDMI Output resolution set to Through
I just checked my DVD player and it was not set to output progressive scan. I just changed that and will give it another try.
Ok my projector sees a 480p signal so I will have to watch and see. (UPDATE 480p from DVD so far so good! 12:45am)
It Looks like the 480p output from the dvd player has fixed the problem. Maybe the receiver just doesn't like 480i from a component?
