are you sure your TV has a true pixel-by-pixel display mode AS WELL AS a mode that slightly crops all 4 sides (not talking about a zoom feature, but much more subtle)? If you only have one "full screen" mode, that probably means you don't have the pixel-by-pixel (or dot by dot) mode on your TV.

The typical display mode on most TVs crops the corners so that you don't see these "imperfections". I suspect that's your situation, because if multipler users with different brand TVs have been reporting the same issue with the green line via HDMI with the Verizon STB and not other components, it must be a Verizon (or Motorola) issue.

For what it is worth, I got a response from verizon technical support staff. According to them, they are working on the green line issue and that will be taken care of in the next upgrade (no indication of a timeframe for that). Also found out that they are working on the problem with QAM tuners not being able to get a lot of the channels that we were getting prior to the update. Another little piece of information, the old guide used to say if a program was a repeat but the new guide does not do that. Instead, you have to assume that a program is a repeat unless it specifically is identified as "new"

Default FIOS "Green Bar" issue

I'm having the same problem with FIOS HDTV and my Visio 46" 1080p. Verizon seems to be taking ownership of the problem, but after 2 hours on the phone, we still have a half-inch wide vertical green bar on the right side of our screen.

Some people have gotten rid of the line by using component cables instead of HDMI.

Also, others have fixed it by using the 16:9 setting for the tv rather than the 1 to 1 pixel mapping setting.

I have had that problem since I got FiOS and my Samsung 46' using HDMI in. But this only happens when I set my TV to "Auto-Mode". When I switch to "16:9" the bar goes away, so it hasn't really neen an issue.

I had the problem with the green line on the right side of the screen and the beveled edge on the left side of the screen on my 47" Vizio with an HDMI cable.

I was able to correct both by going into the video settings on the Vizio TV menu and manipulating the two different Horizontal settings. As you change the settings each of the issues get smaller and smaller until they were no longer visible. It didn't cause any issues in terms of a stretched image either.

Cool

The other day I did an installation and found this happen for the first time. It was the last Hd box on my truck so i tried to find a fix and keep him on HDMI. I changed the resolution to 720p and the green line went away. Didnt see a difference in picture, customer was happy.

Fios tech.

Cris1 is right, this worked great. Some times you have to dig a little deeper and say it might be my TV not fios.

Came across another setup with the right sided GREEN LINE. This time I got rid of it by switching to another HDMI port on the TV. The TV had 3 HDMI ports, the green line only occured on 1 of them. This was a Sony TV. The previous TV was a Vizio.

So, if you have the green line... either

1) Try changing to 720p in your STB menu.... If you see no difference in quality, stick with it.

or

2) Try a different HDMI port on your TV...

or


3) Switch to component cables...

or

4) As Cris1 mentioned, try manipulating your horizontal settings for the TV and squeeze the green line away. I have yet to try this.

FIOS - Same green bar and beveled edge on two LCD's - Westinghouse TX-F47430S and Vizio SV420XVT.

On the Vizio I went to Menu setup and adjusted the horizontal settings (slightly expanded and moved frame to the right) and eliminated the problem. On the Westy however - no adjustments on the Menu for V/H picture size or centering.

So, I went into the DVR set top box - Motorola QIP6416-2 Service setup menu (with power on, use remote and press the 'power-select-menu' keys quickly) and changed the 4:3 ratio to expanded and this cured the problem (also expands standard channels to letterbox size).

Go to dslreportscom/faq/verizonfios/4.0_fios_television (add syntax dot) for info on this, and be careful when you go into service menus and change settings.

Maybe these ideas will help. Now my question - Has anyone come across Service Menu codes for Westinghouse LCD's? I really want to finely adjust the horizontal and vertical frame size on my Westy unit and the screen menu doesn't offer this - believe I need to get into the internal service menu.

Thanks
