Wow thats revolutionary!

Its not going OVER the menu or the icons so it cant be the DLP chip which is what I most suspected it has to be a main-board issue or signals boards issue if its the same with other inputs too like a DVD player?those lines do not look like they are going OVER the menu they look behind it to me would you say that?
