Dip to color question

Hello,

I've edited a musical-video on XpressDV. In the final scene I used dip-to-color (to 601 white : 235/235/235), in order to create a future flash-back of sorts.

It turned out nice.
But while viewing it on several TV sets, I discovered that on some the flash to white was followed by a kind of disturbance in the top part of the frame. It only lasts for 5 frames or so, and happened mostly on older tv's.

Any ideas ?

TIA,
Alon.

If it only happens on old TV's then can probably not handle such
a hot signal or aren't working properly anymore. What happens
if you record it on a VHS tape and play that back?

How old is old here?

Well, Old is something around 15 years old. It does work well under other things. When Playd thru VHS it works fine, but... in such a poor quality.

The thing is I kept the RGB values legal, so it's kind of weird.

Then the signal is probably out of line somewhere, or your player
is doing something weird with the signal or the TV is just not
liking the resolution coming of the DVD player so to speak.

Some testing with a different DVD player might eliminate some of
the possible causes for this.
