    I got a cheap bluray player for an early Christmas present.

    I hooked it up with a nice HDMI cord and popped in planet earth. It looks amazing but some parts, mainly dark parts like around tree trunks and other thing gets a really bad snow effect. Its like white dots flashing on and off constantly in certain parts. Also my mom watched Meet the Robinsons and noticed the same problem in that movie.

    So do what do you guys think the problem is? A faulty bluray player or my TV?

    bluray player is a sony s-300

    my TV is a sammy HL-S5687W DLP

    Probably the bluray player. The first gen sonys (bdps1) were steaming piles of dogshit so I wouldn't be suprised if the some of the kinks and bugs carried over to the second.

    Swap it out for a new one and that should take care of it

    Play with some of the noise reduction settings on the TV.

    It might fix your problem...

    Check your settings on your TV. When I first got an upconverting DVD player there was a lot of artifacts and 'spots' in dark or sold colors. Figured out I had turned on a noise reduction feature that cleaned up problems which actually caused one.

    Maybe try switching between 1080p/i or 720p.

    ill give it a shot. My TV was pretty much the first gen 1080p DLP i think, so im guessing it might just be the TV isnt up to par with todays standards.

    I have the same TV with flawless performance.
    It's your BR player or calibration settings.

    i adjusted the brightness and contrast settings and that helped quite a bit.
