Now The Bad...
After a minute of looking strictly at the color, I noticed that the picture didn't look very crisp -and was quite large.
Cycled the Wide button to Full - still didn't look right - an HD signal has black bars at the top and bottom - and the top bar is thicker. HD source (cable box) was from 1080i channel (also tried 720p).
Hit Display and saw that the TV said signal was 480p. Looked at cable box and it said signal was 480p...hmmm. Note: using HDMI to Video 7. Tried Video 8 - same result.
Hooked up HDMI to different TV - 1080i sent and received. Hmm.. not the cable box then.
Tried component to XBR2 - even worse results.
OK - lets try Blu-Ray. TV Display says signal is 1080p - But it is definetly NOT displaying in 1080p.
Went into Service menu - checked horizontal/vertical - they seemed ok to me.
So after replacing the OB, the TV is unable to handle an HD signal - or tells other components that it can only handle 480p or 480i. (i've traded my green TV for an SD TV
I am 100% (OK - 99.99%) certain that everything was put back in its proper place when OB was reinstalled.
Has anyone else heard of this issue - or had it after replacing the OB?
Could it be the OB itself? I wouldn't think so - but don't know for sure.
I'm totally stumped and open for any help or suggestions.
