    When I have caught this on Channel 4 I think I have noticed something similar to what you describe when the boxes down each side are displayed. It is not really distracting as it is very slight but is noticeable.

    Yup. Exactly the same on my 50PX70.

    Also see the same effect on the skyhd guide front screen.

    This would seem to be a salutory lesson not to watch 'Deal or No Deal'. Just say No.

    I get horizontal lines/streaking on my 21" CRT when the menu from the Freeview box is turned on.

    Though the horizontal lines on 'Deal or No Deal' were NOT apparent on a Philips 42" LCD we had a few months back :rolleyes:

    Same reports of horizontal banding with the Sky menu on some of the Panasonic PH9 series threads :lesson:

    I started a thread about this issue on my 42" PH9 a few months back. After a lot of investigation I have come to the conclusion that it's caused by interference (though not sure from what as such) as I have had 3 PH9's and currently on a 50" model and it's been there on all three of them.

    Not bothered by it though as it is very subtle and I'm not to concerned as I'm pretty sure it's nothing to do with the screen itself. It doesn't spoil my viewing of Deal Or No Deal either. Sorry I like it ;)

    I think this is a issue on all plasma, even if you turn on subtitles you will see it on that too.

    Looked at a load of plasmas and lcds hooked up to sky HD in pc world a week or so ago. Turned the sky guide on and looked at all of the displays. All the plasmas had these streaks/shadows shooting off to the left and right of the tv guide box, some worse than others but they all had them. None of the lcd displays had theses streaks. I initially thought i had a duff display but it seems that this is a problem with plasma displays. It`s not noticable under normal viewing. Do a search for streaks/shadows and read the feedback to my thread.

    Just got a 37PX70 and have the same problems with sky TV Guide - no problems with other channels or watching tv?
    Would love to solve it - have tried moving equipment around to see if its interference - no joy
