    Just a heads up to all those with plasma displays. If you notice that your GTV overlay doesn't line up correctly with the edges of your screen - and like me, you keep going into setting and resizing the picture and then find out minutes later that it doesn't line up again, and you are starting to think you are losing your mind.

    You are not losing your mind - it is caused by the pixel orbiting function that is on by default on most newer plasma displays to prevent image retention (burn-in). Shifts the picture around every few minutes resulting in misalignment with the GTV overlay. Depending on the display, you may be able to turn this feature off, but at your own risk of course.

    (please don't turn this into a thread about image retention and plasma TVs - there is enough information elsewhere)
