I saw the BH-100 at Fry's on the weekend and decided to take the plunge. I am getting the horizontal flicker (on component out) on all BD disks viewed (Casino Royale, Ice age II and X3). Doesn't appear to happen on SD disks and I don't have any HD-DVDs to try. For the record my build date is Feb 2007.
I am assuming the flicker is similar to what others are experiencing. It appears as horizontal band of brightness variation and is quite subtle, but very annoying. My parents and wife didn't notice it until I pointed it out, but could then confirm that it was not merely my eyes which needed servicing.
The flicker is very consistent, i.e. always present at the same points in movie, always absent at the same point. I have a few questions for those with no problems.
i) There is always severe flicker on the (nominally) black screen between the players busy logo (series of bars with pulsating colours) and it switching to the BD picture. Is this only on problem units or do they all do this?
ii) I cannot get my TV to hook up to the unit by HDMI. I have a 60" Sony KDS-R60XBR1. Anyone else successfully connected a BH-100 to this by HDMI. I suspect the TV has an issue and I would like to get it fixed before the warranty expires, but would like confirmation that there is not just a general compatibility issue. Tried two different HDMI cables, to no avail.
I am going to try and exchange it for another one today. Fingers crossed.
