Hello All,

I have a minor problem with my Philips 30PW8420 30' CRT HDTV. Until recently, I did not know that it was faily common, and had a name "Hum Bars". (horizontal translucent bars that crawl up the screen). I only have this problem when watching DVD's in progressive scan 480p mode using component video cables.

if I transfer a 1080i signal through component or HDMI, I do not get the hum bars. If I use the same DVD player in 480i mode through component, I do not get the bars either.

I know that I could just buy a new dvd player and run it through the HDMI port, but I am more concerned with fixing the problem if I can.

Any suggestions?
