My HD-A1 arrived at Sears yesterday After work I drove over to pick it up. So I get it home , hook it up, change the settings to 1080I and HDMI. I play Bourne Supremacy as my first choice as a test disc. Everything looked fine and I played the movie for about 20 minutes, when I decided to see how this thing does as an upconverting player. I went and grabbed a few titles that I thought should look great. First I throw Monsters Inc (Pixar) in and it looks great. Then I tried Madagascar (Dreamworks) that was a whole different ballgame . Reds took over the whole screen. Backgrounds that should be blue were red, and a red tint remained on the screen through all other scenes. I egected and strated over with the same results. Then I tried The Incredibles ( Pixar) and things were looking great again. So now I'm thinking something must be wrong with my copy of Madagascar. This is when I tried Shark Tale (Dreamworks) and the red domination of the screen took over again. After that I tried Fantastic Four and a Harry Potter film with no issues at all. It was after that that I noticed that both DVDs that were having problems were from Dreamworks. So the question arises: Has anyone else seen this problem? Question 2 would be: Is this something that firmware version 1.4 would address ? This player was shipped with 1.3 installed. Any ideas?
