In my setup it's basically unusable and I have to leave it set to 'off'!
I have all HDMI interface, source to Denon AVR-3313ci then to pj. I do like this feature in certain situations and i'm dissapointed that it does not work correctly. Is there anyone out there that is having a similar issue with this feature? And does anyone know why this is happening and how to correct it?? Could it be a HDMI cable issue? All my cables are from OSD, their premium line ver 1.4 cables. Cable from AV receiver to pj is a 20 footer.
Thanks in advance for the help!!
I have this problem and it has been reported by one or two others here.
I am going from a PS3 to a Onkyo 809, then thru a DVDO duo. It was pretty bad at first for me, but has settled down to about once every 30 seconds or so when set to low. This isn't a deal breaker for me because I generally like the picture better without it, but I would like it use it for sports and the occasional tv show. Otherwise I really don't care for the video look that it produces. Low would likely be the only setting I would use.
I updated my Onkyo and Duo firmware and that seemed to help some. I suggest you see if there is a firmware update for your Denon if it is able to be updated by you.
Another approach is to run a dedicated HDMI cable to the PJ if you have a dual output BD player.
Also make sure your Denon is not processing the signal at all or is set to output 1080p/60 only. The 5020 scaling doesn't look very good to me .
I have really bad lip sync and jerky picture issues when using 1080p/24 output from my PS3, so disable that in your player as well and see what you get.
I am seriously considering stepping up to the Sony VPL-HW50ES because of some of the little things like this that bug me about the Epson 5020.
Overall, I am pretty happy with the picture from the 5020 though.
