I am seeing a pattern of green artifacts throughout my TV screen when watching any programming from the 811 through a DVI output. When I switch my TV to watch the same programming through S-Video , it's gone. Here's a shot of the artifacts on DVI (SEE ATTACHED IMAGE #1)

I know that it is a 811 problem because when I hit the guide button, the guide comes up and the green artifacts disappear. Everything is then normal (i.e. not a TV or DVI cable problem). (SEE ATTACHED IMAGE #2)

Also, from the guide, when I select a channel and it comes up with the normal transparent header guide info, the picture is perfect (SEE ATTACHED IMAGE #3), but when the header disappears the artifacts are back (SEE ATTACHED IMAGE #4)

Sorry the pics suck! My digital camera is also giving me troubles...

High Def March Madness sucks with little green rectangles on the court! Please Help! :(

Problem solved!

This is evidentally a bug with 811. I also posted on DBStalk and was told just a reboot will solve it, which it did! I was unaware of this problem...
