    Probably a strange question, but what does it say under the Directv logo (right under the word Directv) on the screensaver that bounces around all over the screen?
    And does it mean something needs to be adjusted on mine if I can't read that? (Everything else is perfectly clear).

    It's just the website. It could be motion blurring, which would be inherent to the tv.

    I don't have a Genie but the bright white lettering on the screen is hard to read, especially if the brightness is turned up too much on the TV. The same is true for the Guide text on that Black background.

    Even weirder: Today it is totally clear. The first day it was installed it just looked like a blob or a puff of smoke. I don't think it could have been motion blur since everything else was non-blurry.
    Regardless, it is fixed. America can now breathe a sigh of relief.

    Do you have native turned on? Maybe when watching a SD or 720p channel with native turned on the screen saver is in that same resolution, so it becomes blurrier than when on a 1080i channel? (I don't know since mine are all set to 1080i all the time with native off).

    If that isn't the case then I would say you need to check your eyesight, or recalibrate your TV, because the text on my TVs (ranging from 42"-65") is all perfectly legible.
