Sorry i forgot to mention this problem comes and goes. It will sometimes just go away for a while and break again hours later.

It does this with all inputs/sources?

Or only when watching satellite TV and not DVD or Blu Ray discs?

I'd perform a factory reset of the panel just to see what it does.
