I just got a completely new entertainment system and am having two issues. First my equipment:
SONY KF-50WE610 50 Grand WEGA LCD
Yamaha DVDC740 5-disc DVD player
Yamaha RXV730 6.1 Receiver
Mirage Omnisat in a 6.1 configuration
Velodyne VX10 Subwoofer
All video is component connected
All audio is optically connected
My DVD issue is I cant seem to get a 16:9 movie to play normally. What I mean is it fills the screen top to bottom but there are black bands left and right. I have verified that the DVD setup is on 16:9 and I also select the 16:9 feature on the movie. I also selected 4:3 to make sure that something screwy wasnt going on and it then plays framed on all 4 sides with black bands.
Now, I can make the picture fill the screen with on of the zoom/stretch functions on my monitor, but this should play in natural 16:9 so there is no picture stretching.
Second problem is I have horizontal lines ghosting across the monitor. They are really easy to see on a solid background (blue), and they can be seen during normal viewing as well though they appear less prevalent.
Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
As a note, I am running all power connections into Monsters HTS 2000 (which has stage 2 ac filters.)
Thanks in advance,
