    Anyone ever seen an issue with a big green bar in middle of screen and picture shifted right on HR24 and SD channels?

    Not seeing it on either of my HR24-500s. Try resetting your receiver.

    If issue persists after resetting your receiver run a system test.

    All items ok. Never seen anything like this. If it was HDMI issue would think all channels would do it, but only SD does.

    If you can try using a different HDMI cable.

    I notice if I move resolution from 480i to 480p it works. I have native on so I unchecked 480i in resolutions and now it works on it's own. Only thing I've found that helped. Now I don't remember if 480i was always checked or not.

    Some TVs, especially newer ones, don't do 480i over HDMI very well if at all.

    Man, I could get past the green bar occasionally, but I could never deal with the picture being upside down like that.
