Hey everyone. I was at a friend's house who told me when he watches DVDs on his Sony DVD player (using composite connection) that his color is incorrect and the picture is shifted to the left by about 1/6 (several inches to left). The colors seem to be mismatched: blues = pinks, reds = greens. He has a VIP722 DISH receiver using Component cables on Comp2 and the DISH picture looks great, no color or alignment issues. When I disconnected the component cables from the DISH receiver and plugged them into the DVD player, the color and left-shift issues remained. I tried another DVD player from my house with same result. It makes no sense especially because I'm using a component connection on the TV which works fine on one device (DISH receiver) but gives the color issues/left shift issues on 2 separate DVD players.
At this point, I think its a software issue and certainly would like to try that because it seems to be the cheapest route. Has anyone else on this thread experienced the weird color issues described above?
I have not tried to purchase the JIG but figure by July 2009, they probably don't make it anymore and its not on eBay, etc. For those seasoned veteran users of the "JIG", do you think I should give it a shot? Does the JIG simply make changes or can I update the firmware in the process--I'm sure my friend's TV does not have the latest firmware if he purchased it new in November 2004. I would be more than happy to give a deposit in exchange for renting the tool from one of you folks if my symptoms warrant. Thanks for your help!
