What causes the "clear" line right underneath the top bar on widescreen films? On some films, when the image goes through the line, it becomes slightly distorted.

It most likely has to do with compression to 480i/p. You don't see this with 1080p discs.;)

Yeah usually only crappy transfers like the original T2 have that line
