Does anyone else out there get a thin green line/stripe down the very left edge of the screen with their SKY HDi box?

I've got mine hooked up to my Philips Cineos TV via an HDMI cable. I can get rid of it by changing the picture format on the TV to 'Auto-format' instead of 'Actual size' but it crops off a fair bit of the picture all round and the picture is always stretching and shrinking based on the content which bugs me even more. I've got an Apple TV hooked up in the other HDMI port and that is perfect so I'm wondering if it's the SKY box.

My MYSkyHDi doesn't display any such line even with the overscan turned off on my TV.  Does your TV have an option to set 16:9?  That would stop it jumping round in auto.  But I would suggest your MySky may have a problem.
