Man I almost had a heart attack watching the bears game yesterday in HD. Around the 2nd quarter, I started to notice the white(grayish) line going horizontally acroos the center of the tv. At first it only appeared for a second or less. As time went on, I was seeing it more often. By the time the game ended it was permentaly on the screen. I thought it was FOX, i tried other HD channels, and still there. I was getting pissed, as I just switched the tv, and didnt want to go through it all over again (convergence/gemetry problems) Then I thought the horizonal graysih line was because the tv is just hot (been on for around 3 hours) turned it off, came back near 6 hours later, and still there. Thats it I nearly just give up on it. Then I rememberd, before the FOX game, I put the HD box from 1080i to 720p. I put it back to 1080i and bam the problem dissapreed, I waited an hour, and checked all differnt channels, and nothing. THANK GOD. So if somone ever notices the white(grayish) line going horizontal across the center of the tv, try changing your HD resolution.
ALso a question, I only have 2 things hooked up to the tv, is their a way to block out the rest of the inputs from the tv??? I know Sony and Panasonic offer this, just wondering if this tv does. Nothing about it in the manual, just a complete blcokout of every input.
