I posted this in HDTV hardware but got little response. I figure most DST50/51 owners follow this thread so:
I recently connected a DST50 to my Philips 60PP9601 Aux4 input. When the DST50 is sending 1080i and the TV is in HD widescreen mode, a small white bar appears just below the image, in the center of the screen. The line is only about 1" or so long. I don't see this when sending the same source
material (Dish Network HD stuff) from the Accessdtv card to the Aux4 input via a VGA-compoment converter. I'm concerned about burn-in from the white bar.
Has anyone else seen this? Is there anything I can do about it?
I see the white bar when I connect either a 50 or 51 to a computer monitor via a component/RGB converter. It's there even if there is no signal. It's outside the viewing area so it doesn't show on my 16:9 plasma. I don't know a fix.
gridleak, thanks for the info. It's good to know I'm not the only one that sees this. It's also good to know that it's not something weird about my TV. Unfortunately, I have a 4x3 so when I watch a widescreen image, the white bar is still visible. I also have a much software white bar just above the other one which is in the widescreen viewing area.
Robert, which converter are you talking about? The DST50 or my TV?
mdv- The "converter" I'm talking about is a component to RGB converter such as the Key Digital CTC1. Perhaps your TV accepts the component video signal directly. I have a 50 and have no such problems after I tweeked my KD. I would still suspect some kind of timing issue.
