Here is something that I am noticing after I switched to FIOS. I have a two year old Sharp 45-inch LCD tv. I have the HD DVR receiver box, connected with a HDMI cable. While watching a HD channel in 1080 mode, on the left side of the screen from approximately 3/4-inch the image looks funny, sort of like looking at the bevel edge of a mirror. This takes up the full length of the left side of the screen. Anyone know what this could be? It does not do it in 480 mode. Next, I need to test it with component cables. I do have two in-line filters that the tech installed (due to pixation, but I later discovered that it was a bad coax cable running from the wall to the cable box) to decrease the strength of the signal. I will try removing them to see what happens.
On another item. As for component cables, when the FIOS tech set up the tv, I preferred to have the component cables connected but the colors were way off, so I went with the HDMI. The component cables worked fine with the Cox cable that I had before. The FIOS picture is exceptional with HDMI, heck the picture is exceptional on two of my 15 year old tv's with the STB boxes.
After typing this I guess that I should have done some trouble shooting before posting.
