Just to follow up . . . I had a Geek Squad tech come out (
) and, upon showing him my problem, was given a brief description of how exactly DLP works and its drawbacks . . . which I already know. He failed to comprehend that this is my third DLP, and neither of the previous models exhibited any problems even nearly similar to this one. I popped in my Dark Knight disc, since the issue is very evident during the WB logo sequence, to show him exactly what I was talking about, and was then told that "I don't know why they didn't make the Blu-ray spec to be all 16:9." At this point, it was pretty obvious what I was dealing with. The guy went outside and called Mitsubishi (allegedly) and was "told" that this was "within the manufacturer's specifications." Since he came in and basically professed what an "expert" he was on DLP technology, I have my doubts that he even talked to someone at Mitsubishi, but that's just a feeling. Anyway, here's another picture I took that demonstrates the issue much better than the previous two. My next step is calling Mitsubishi tomorrow and getting an independent service agent to come out and check it out.
No, that "haze" above the white block is not because of the camera. That's what it looks like.
