Grey flickering line on SD channels

Hi everyone,

 

Just a quick question - I'm getting a grey flicking line at the top left of SD channels, only on the left half of the TV though.

 

This seems to happen both on freeview SD channels and internet SD channels - for the majority of them but not all from what I could see.

 

Any ideas what this is? HD looks pretty great it is just when watching SD channels - it's quite noticeable so a bit annoying when watching!

 

Didn't get this when just watching SD on my TV.

 

Thanks!

 Probably

 

Overscan

 

so you would need to adjust your TV setting to remove it. What you have to do varies by make/model of TV.

Oooo, good call - sounds like it is.

I did have a few issues between the TV and the box stretching like a 4:3 tv show, which it then didn't put back so the guide would stretched and remain that way (and I assume that is the TV's fault).

I'll have another play with the settings and see what I can do!
