I have a Sony CRT 34" widescreen. I have noticed that there is a wave running from the left to right on the screen when I am running anything in HD. This is especially noticeable when the picture is dark. When the TV is idle and is the only device turned on I donít see it. I do have the TV on a decent Monster Cable power strip and all of the wires are above average. Any ideas? I new to all of this so be kind if its something simple :D .

That's normal for all sony crts. I have the same thing on mine. Are you using hdmi? if you are then try using component, it'll make it less noticeable.

Yes I am on my DVD player. Truthfully it's most noticeable when it's up scaled 1080i HD. I just got the Xbox 360 and it does that. I have Component cables on it and it still does it. Guess I will just have to live with it.

I have a Sony 34" and I do not get any type of wave, or any anomalies. There is often lines in SD channels, but thats all. I would not tolerate it! After all we paid big $ for a superior TV so go to Sony and the squeeky wheel gets the oil. I also see you are using a up-convert dvd. I have seen that these are of no value to a tube type TV, as the TV ups the signal anyway so there is no noticable Diff. in picture quality, I also tried one and went back to my prog. scan DVD deck. Just wait until 06 for the true HD DVD decks, after the battle of formats is over. Looks as though blu-ray will win it!
