    I just bought a sony fc8 dream system and hooked it up. Everything seems to be working fine, however when I click some channels(cable) there is a black box that partially blocks the screen. I can't seem to figure it out. Also is this a decent system and are there any additions to this system to make it sound better. thanks I know there are some people here who really know what is going on with home theater, thanks again guys

    Sounds like something to do with closed captioning. Check the options; make sure it is not set to "Text."

    I think wayne is right check the XDS (it is a closed caption feature) on the remote or in the menu setup make sure it is off. on some sony's it can only be turned of on the remote take care and good luck

    It's most definitely a CC issue. Turn CC off and you'll be fine. That system is good to start with but before you know it you'l have the upgrade bug.
