You're probably right. Didn't quite sink in that's what he was getting at. Like I said initially, turn off all that junk.

What picture mode is it in? Switch to THX Cinema, turn off the usual suspects, and make sure aspect ratio is set to Full. After that maybe fixes things up, change it around to what you have it set...

Whether you call him in for the buzz is your call, always possible it could be reduced a bit. Doubt there's anything that can be done about your green line, short of getting a different tv.

Are these the ones that are white on the one side and black (foam?) on the other (filter?) side? (Looking at an ebay picture of one.)

Worth a try… worst case, I can use them in my vacuum cleaner.
