I had one tv in my house that wast that way as well. It was NBC
Dallas on SD content they upscale for broadcast IIRC, it always had a
5-10 pixel row of what I assumed to be the CC data from the SD
broadcast that was visible. This was a DirecTV re-broadcast. There
was an overscan setting on the plasma that fixed it right up (in both
Mythtv and DirecTV).. I never saw it happen on HD broadcasts, or any
other channels for that matter..
I only ever have audio issues on my IONS when I forget to apply my asoundrc..
That downmixes everything to stereo for my TVs.. I have never had
popping though.. Supposedly, JYA is making some changes in .24 that
will be faster than using this .aoundrc - can't wait :) Every once
in a while with this, I have to adjust the audio sync by 30-100ms..
