Does anyone that has this set have a problem on episode 6 where the right side of the screen has a black bar down the side with some white dots flickering near the top?

It's very strange. I know my TV is set up correctly.

Bizarrely this was intentional, that line is information in a file that can be read by a light reader. If you select the L33T subtitle track the episode opens with an introduction about this; it's part of a competition which also included the base64 (a programing code) extra subtitles to decode computer files, each file being a clue. There's a section about it on the series three extras (Cracking the IT Crowd). On older TVs the overscan would cut this off, but it's very visible on modern TVs.

And yes, I know the OP was almost 10 months ago.
