Can everyone who has noticed this please just check the following. 1. Is it only when watching via component??? 2. If you set the Brightness to 40 and contrast to 55 does it disappear.. The reason I ask is that I set mine up with AVIA ages ago, and never saw the 'band', but I was messing with avia last night, and when I turned the brightness well above the ideal setting, I noticed a vertical band about 3 inches wide (on a 51") right up the screen.. this is not present when connected via s-video... The good news was that when setup using AVIA, the band is not visible in anyway shape or form.... Just wondering if this is what people are seeing.. its the same on my Brothers 51" as well.. and is certainly signal related.. but only on component in..
