Question about Televison & Video
I only have one 1081i component input on tv. It was working fine with just HD cable hooked up. I got a PS3 so I had to buy a component switch to hook both up at same time. Now when I watch HD cable or a Blu Ray through the PS3 the bottom quarter of the screen goes "wavy" at certain parts of the show or movie. I notice it mostly when a scene switches or there are some sort of graphics that pop up on the screen. The kicker is that when I play a game on the PS3 there are no problems at all. I have tried switching the cables and trying different jacks on component switch. Any suggestions?
What you are using is probably an active switch. Many of the movies have macrovision protection. The active switch is having problems to deal with sync pulses from the video containing the macro vision protection.
