It happens mostly during commercial although I saw it with a National Geo Channel program where there were pillars on left and right.
I also see it on the left edge of the video display area of a 4:3 signal signal.
DirecTV has no idea. Pioneer says it's the signal from DirecTV.
Any idea? Thanks.
It's Called a Data transmission segment. It shows up all TV's That have near Zero overscan. Now ways to get it to go away:
1. Adjust Overscan (But this will delete some of the information in the picture on all channels it is not present on, not just the few you see it on)
2.Raise vertical position. Same drawbacks as above listed in #1 and sometimes this won't remove all of it.
3. Live with it ( I do on mine)
I have a family member that just bought a Sony XBR4 LCD. Saw it on his and had to explain what it was so he wouldn't be freakin out and calling me everytime he saw it.
Trying to give you the most and best picture on HD and HD DVD has caused some problems in the transmission area of the picture. But it is only on a few.
