I didn't have any part of the OSD on during that recording. I don't have Deep Sleep enabled.
I was thinking about power cleaness as well but the other guy said he took his monitor across town to a friend's place and had the same problem. Maybe I'll buy something like this and see if that helps? My surge protector is due to be replaced anyway.
It was weird, while I was recording that video I swear that sometimes the effect went away completely even with G-Sync on, it was so hard to tell for sure. Other times I thought I saw it when G-Sync was off, my poor eyes.
well, if he used the same adapter at a friend's house, that would replicate the issue again. Fragmachine (who only posted on the ACER forums) said that he had his monitor replaced and still had the issue. Now, I don't know if he returned the entire thing and got a new unit from a retailer. But if he just got a replacement from ACER, it is likely they would have asked him to keep the adapter and only return the panel. It's just speculation. Power adapters have come a long way since the days of needing different ones for 110V or 220V, but it won't surprise me today if they are unshielded and of poor quality for the sake of cost-cutting. Nor would I be surprised if the G-sync module is not shielded properly and capactive and inductive noises leak into the LCD functioning. All more complicated by the fact that some adapters are two pronged and not three.
EDIT: Funny how the horizontal lines are similar to the lines we could get on a CRT TV if the antenna was getting a noisy reception. We're now in the age of G-sync and digital serial comms with DP, yet it feels like we have come full circle (loosely speaking).
