I have a Sony tv too and the green line shows, although you have to remember that each resolution on a Sony has it's own screen setting. 1080i/p on 'full pixel' will revert to 'Normal' (overscan on) on 576i unless you select the +1 setting in screen options for that particular resolution. That's by the bye though and I get what you mean about the EPG which does look a little blurry at anything less than 720p. I think the channels with a decent resolution and bitrate like BBC look ok upscaled, but it's the low res Com muxes which look really soft and blurry when 1080i/p is applied. I don't know why they feel the need to do both 1080i and 1080p on Freeview though. It doesn't happen on satellite.
