Green Line @ Top of Screen

Sage is working great except for a small quality issue (I'm not sure if this is fixable or not), and a green line at the top of the screen which is my primary concern. Anyone have any thoughts on how to fix?

If its in the video it could just be a little overscan (part of the video that you wouldn't normally see on regular TVs, usually about 10 pixels on all sides) that you can crop out by zooming in a little extra in the aspect ratio settings.

I'll give that a try as a band-aid. Is there a way to completely eliminate the line?

Well, if the line is in the original broadcast then there's nothing you can do except crop it out as I described. Its not really a Sage issue, its just how it is.

Its not a band-aid fix. Those lines on the edges of the video are common. You've just never seen them before on a normal TV with its 5-10% overscan. The TV broadcasters don't worry about having a perfect picture out there (the CC data broadcast can often be seen on the top of the video as a flashing white line) since it is not supposed to be seen.
