Recently bought this player to play dvd instead of my PS2 - so far haven't noticed any improvement really.

There's banding on light colours fading to black (start of Mummy when Universal sign changes to Sun, also "Interscope" logo at start of Pitch Black Unrated version. Also - lots of trails left by objects in Highlander:Endgame - seen a discussion board where others have suffered with Highlander problem - trails do not run in reverse when image played back - the object just "catches up" with existing trail - if you know what I mean?!

For the money, I thought that this player would be much better - can't believe it's TV (Toshiba 2539DB) - I've tried player on another TV and banding problems remain. Tried messing with all settings (MNR, BNR, CNR, YNR etc.) and nothing gets better - also noticed some artefacts in supposedly "reference" quality DVD's (Hollow Man).

Anyone else had these probs? And if so, what's the remedy???

The beauty of that player lies inside. It's probably one of the best progressive scan players on the market. When you pop that sucka into a progressive ready display (480P) the picture is going to explode into something you never thought possible from a DVD. My pops just bought one of those and although we're only running in S-Video right now (Component for 480P), the picture is outstanding compared to any other player I've demoed (under $2000). Anyhow, once you get to use it with a true 480p display you'll be 100% satisfied with your purchase. I garuntee it.

Check out http://www.avscience.com if you're interested in some front projectors. Around $4000-5000 could land you a full HDTV on over a 100" screen.
