I've read some earlier threads on this subject and I don't want to restart any flame wars, I just want to add my data point in agreeing with the other posters that experience tis on their HR44/Flat Panel combinations. It does look like some kind of interlace/de-interlace issue to me. It is much less apparent on the larger recording list font. On my setup it's much fainter and almost blurry, much more faint than on my earlier HR34 and my current HR24. I know there's no current way to make this better but I wanted to add my two cents anyway.
