I'm sorry to bump this, but I don't know what to do.
The manual claims this is caused by a TV not supporting HDCP but I have a fairly new Sony Bravia(<~6-7 months), which I'm pretty sure supports something that's been around for a while like HDCP.
It's sort of like horizontal digital artifacting, the kind that looks like large pixels, I'm sure you know what I mean.
I was going to try updating the firmware(not sure what version it's at off the top of my head, but it doesn't have Blackbuster or Youtube support, which I think is added in firmware) when I stumbled upon all the bricking nonsense, the latest ones on their site probably work(BEv2.07_090923_HTBD12XX_XAA.iso), but I'm not stepping out on that ledge without actually knowing.
So I was hoping someone might have some suggestions, thank you in advance.
