It is also there on interlaced output. Because you have visible line structure on an interlaced display, it makse the streaks harder to see. Of course now I see them on a 20" TV with DSS. Philips DirectTivo has the chroma bug.
With all the outboard video signal processors (and some "inboards", like my Cinematrix), it becomes relevant to discuss how they minimize/enhance the dreaded chroma bug. I went from a Sony 7000 DVD player (w/out the bug) to a 7700 DVD (w/the bug), but the progressive scan/scaling circuitry seems to minimize the chroma bug effects. Why, I don't know, but it's some concellation for those who are "stuck" w/the bug but have invested in things like DVDO, etc.
