I am now the proud owner of this laserdisc player, thanks to Killit. I was watching Ed Wood last night, and on some scenes I noticed multi colored lines, specifically on shots of items or backgrounds with lots of lines or stripes. Is this normal? I have my player hooked up with component video out. One more thing. Are Monster Cables all they're cooked up to be? I don't know if I can justify spending $60 on a set of AV cables. Maybe if I had a hi def tv I could, but the $6 cables I bought seem to work just fine.
