Anyone else notice slighlty curved lines in 3:2 Pulldown?

05-10-2005, 08:34 AM
Just got my new Sammy HLR-5087W. I love the picture and I can't wait to use the cable card. One less box for clutter. My HD and widescreen viewing has been amazing. However, I just noticed in 3:2 pulldown slightly curved lines framing out the box. Apparently they are hardly noticeable but I see them and I want them to be razor sharp straight.

Does anyone else have this problem with their DLP TV? I contacted Samsung and they are sending someone out to fix it. They said its an easy fix? Their support has been great.

Just wondered if I was alone with this issue or if it was the source of the signal or something other than the DLP display.

Thanks in advance for your help. CM

3:2 pulldown is the technique used to produce 30 Hz video from 24 FPS film. Nothing to do with picture geometry.

"Framing out the box"????? Do you mean you're watching a 4:3 image inset in a 16:9 frame? If you mean you have some bit of curve to the sidebars, then you're probably noticing a bit of spherical abberation of the optical enlargement. To SOME degree, this is present in most RPTVs, regardless the technology. This isn't fixable, it's a designed in property of the lense system.
