This happens on a 2nd HD Digital Box (None PVR) upstrairs connected to Sony TV which is older and not HD. I have powered down and on again both the box and TV at different times, plus unhooked the Video 1 and tried it straight through the coax on Channel 3. In both cases, when the unit first turns on the screen is fine, then within seconds the bottom half of the screen goes solid black. My son's PS3 in Video 2 is fine. Any suggestions?

try switching the video cable (if you have another sitting around)

or call tech support (they would have cables/ new box)

bjm300zx, it sounds like you have one of the closed caption options turned on. To check the STB press MENU > Settings > Television > Closed Captioning.

Also check your TV, either through the menus or with a dedicated CAPTION button on the remote. It sounds like you might have the TEXT1 or TEXT2 type of closed captioning turned on.
