I've begun having this problem in the last couple days. I have the DVP-S9000ES connected to a Sony KD-34XBR2, which is a widescreen HDTV. Every minute or so, as the movie plays, the top inch of the picture bends and distorts. It always occurs in the top of the image, across the length of the screen, and lasts for a split second. I've seen the problem while watching "Miss Congeniality," "Starship Troopers" and "Where the Heart Is." All those movies are anamorphic and are 1.85 framed, filling up the TV screen. I'm not sure the problem occurs with 2.35 anamorphic movies; it may but is impossible to see because the top of the screen is a black. The problem does not seem to afflict 4:3 framed programming. Has anyone else seen or heard of a similar problem? Any feedback would be appreciated.
