   I think that is probably a feature in the AGiB stuff - I've seen it 
on our system and other places have mentioned they see it too.  I call
it the "random surprise start-up screen capture mode". ;-)  Usually one
or two of our four vics will be doing the vic screen capture instead
of camera source.  

   But the good news is that as soon as you enter another room it clears
up.  Not sure if it is a timing thing or what.  Since we usually do go
to a room we've just lived with it.
