1080p movie problems
Every time I try watch a movie in 1080p, I get a flashing green bar at the bottom of the screen. My TV supports full HD and if I switch the resolution on the reciever down to 1080i it works fine. Any ideas?

Your HDTV is not compatible with DirecTV's 1080p@24fps format.  Uncheck that "1080p" resolution box in the DVR's HDTV Setup Menu and set your receiver for 1080i.  you movie will look amazing!
