OK, here is a new one. Last night while watching BEHIND ENEMY LINES and BLUE VELVET on D-VHS via my JVC30K direct to my Panny TV, 4 times the blue just went out of the picture. For instance, the blue velvet curtains during the end credits of that film were green. If I stopped the tape and started it again, the blue would come back. Pausing or scanning forwards or backwards did not alleviate the problem.
I flipped over to my Samsung SIR-T165 and viewed some of WINDTALKERS on HBO via the 5000 HD setup and nothing happened. I played a good amount of tape with my Panasonic D-VHS deck through the Samsung and nothing happened.
I went back to the JVC30K and the problem came back. I then played my 30K through the Samsung and the problem did not come up.
So it would appear to be a 30K issue. Any ideas what could be happening? Could the blue component connector be going bad? Could the cable be going bad? All cables are tight.
