Doesn't sound normal to me. When you say "dark" do you mean black? Or just a dimming of the colors? I have a PD50 and I notice that on progressive scan DVD input thru component I get a narrow, slightly dark band across the bottom of the screen when "Video NR" is set to on. What kind of source do you see this effect on (TV, DVD, or all of them?)
It is only dimmer then the rest of the picture and isn't a black line. I still get the picture.
I wondered if it might be the shadow from the bezel but didn't really have a good way to test that. I did turn off the lights and it seemed to be better so that might be it. I suppose some shadow is to be expected then.
