hey everyone, just been reading this thread for the past hour! just found these great forums.
I just hooked up my hd8000 components and everything was good, but sometimes i'll notice background grid or one kind of standoutish (thats a new word
) in the left 3/4 of the screen, and for some reason, its all i can stare at now!
I don't have the problem with dvds and have tested on all other component inputs and it still seems to be there, this thing may just be some sort of descrambler line or something, all i can figure. Its not anything wrong with my tv, i was relieved to discover when i hooked my dvd player up with the same components.
Should I get DVI cables? I think that might help it, but dammit, i want HDTV, not HD-just ignore some of the inperfections in the background TV!
Not a huge deal, well, dammit, actually it is, i'm a bit compulsive and obsessive about this kind of thing haha, hope someone can help.
You can check yours to see if you have anything, when u turn the channel and it goes black , you can see the pic start to generate in a kind of grid, see if you have anything.
Thanks guys, glad to be here.
