Given this is a single row of pixels, at the top of the screen, it is
more likely that what Michael is seeing is the VBI data, This row of
pixels is normally in the overscan area when you view on a TV, but is
displayed when playing back on a monitor. 

If this is the case, take a look around on the wiki for instructions on
how to crop the video before playback.
