    This resulted in a very useful photo and settled many questions (and raised a new one).

    Well done.

    What networks? Is it professional sports or is it pro and college? Is the blue line moving or stationary in the center of your screen?

    If it is both Saturday and Sunday, it is likely that both college and pro sports are involved.

    The networks answer is key and much more detail about the nature of the "blue stripe" is needed: is it wide or narrow, horizontal or vertical (up and down could be a moving horizontal stripe or a vertical stripe), does it appear on your roommate's TV -- that kind of detail.

    Absent detail, I can only guess that it might be the line of scrimmage.

    If the color settings are off, it could be the new yards to gain change on the broadcasts this year. The Network are making the yards to gain a darker shade than the rest of the field, along with the usual gold first down stripe overlay.
