I also bought the DVD-1080P8 and a TV LCD LN40A530... When I use the DVD player connected to the TV via a Philips HDMI cable, the image blinks few times per minute... However, when I use the same TV and cable connected to my Scientic Atlanta cable HD TV terminal, it works fine... I called Samsung, they recommended me to try to upgrade the firmware. The instructions on ther website are weird (it mentions to check if the file extensio is "ruf", but the file provided has another extension. Anyway, I contacted Samsung, and they asked me to send back my DVD player because they would be going to replace it. But they are not sure if the new replacement player will come with the same firmware version... I no longer can return it to Future Shop. so I will try to sell it.
The problem is with the Samsung DVD having HDMI issues with the Samsung LCD. I ultimately bought a Philips DVD Soundbar and everything works, except for the Anynet+ since it's only for Samsung products. How embarrassing for Samsung for allowing this to happen.
Wow! I'm having the same issue. Brand new Samsung TV and DVD player. Tried getting a new HDMI cable, still doing it. I'm going to return the DVD player to Circuit City. Maybe I should try a different brand DVD player...how wierd...

I changed the output on the Dvd player to720p and that seemed to cure the signal problem,that is what the TV is,so that makes sense,I had already assumed that would do the trick.However,as I said yesterday,the manual states it only upgrades the signal in 1080p,I went by the deacription on the box which said it was compatible with all 3 signals.So after all of that I am not sure if it is going to upgrade the signal to 720p,if you have the answer I would appreciate knowing,I can certainly live with this .but it would be nice to know.
Hey smittybd, According to information provided by the manufacturer, this specific model DVD player is only able to provide upconverted 1080i images via its HDMI output and a maximum 480p resolution using its component connectors. Please keep in mind that while component cables are able to support 1080i and 1080p resolutions, not all hardware (TV's and DVD players) will support these resolutions through component connections. If you're having difficulty locating a model that specifically supports 1080i resolution images through its component connections, you may wish to try visiting individual manufacturers' websites for more information. Some companies (such as Sony) will provide detailed information regarding what each type of connection is capable of in their owner's manual documentation. Hope this helps you out. Sincerely, Aaron Go Ahead. Use Us.
This happend to me before on a toshiba 2 disk dvd changer it i searched on the net for lasers but it was about 30 to 40 dollars i got lucky and found a single disk toshiba in a trash and dicided to have a look i opened both and they looked the same so i swapped it out and it worked my suggestion is if its an old player and u have a little money scrap it u can buy a cheap walmart brand for about 30-40 dollars and if ur a home theater freak and have hdmi ports on your tv and if your tv is 1080p the get an upconvert dvd player which tranforms your standard dvd to 1080p which is a way better than regular dvd but not as good as blue ray
Are you just using the yellow cable at this point, because the quality would in fact be awful? Using the green, red & blue cables (component cables) would not improve quality much, seeing as the yellow video cable has a resolution of 480i and component cables are set at 480p. Your TV (if it is in fact high definition) would either run at 720p or 1080p depending on what the manual says and what the native resolution is. I would say try and buy and upconvert DVD player and make sure to get an HDMI cable to go from the DVD player to the HDTV (some DVD players come with this cable, but you'll have to look around for them, otherwise look on buy.com or something for some cheap ones). HDMI connection and the upconvert DVD player will improve picture quality significantly.
While I am not familiar with all the models out there, I personally purchased a Samsung upconvert 2 years ago and I could definately see the difference between this and my progressive scan dvd player from before. In searching online for the Panasonic 1080p upconvert, there are several differing opinions, however my suggestion would be to purchase the one that appeals to you and utilize the 30 day return policy if the unit does not work for you.
Some DVD players can upconvert DVD signals to resolutions that match those of HDTVs, and send them to a compatible TV via a digital video connection. HDMI (High-Definition Media Interface) and DVI (Digital Visual Interface) both offer high-quality digital transmission of standard- and high-definition video signals. HDMI can also carry multichannel audio, and is backwards compatible with DVI (video only). So in other words, to receive the full benefit from an upconvert, you would want to hook it up with HDMI or DVI.
Hi, You use the video and audio 'out' from your cable box to the 'in' on your Vr357. You can use s-video, component video cables or the av cables that came with it. You can use your HDMI cable from the VR 357 to your television. That will be for upconvert DVD watching. The cable box connection will still go from the box into your television. Hope that helps.
I had the same problem with the same player for some DVDs. Fortunately, for me, there is a solution that has worked 100% of the time.
I am assuming you are probably setting the DVD player to upconvert to 1080 i or p. What you need to do is go to DVD setup and change the resolution back to standard def (480i) just for the menus. The menus will now work properly. Once the movie starts you can switch it back to 1080i/p with no problem.
