Does anyone else sometimes notice lines that travel from top to bottom on their MFT screen when the backup cam is activated? Resolution does change there are just these lines that travel from top to bottom kind of like if you were getting bad signal from a TV antenna or something.

I've seen some very faint black horizontal lines quickly transition from top to bottom of the screen when backup cam is on. They disappear from the display very quickly - like in less than a second. The lines have been observed both in my 2013 F150 Platinum as well as my 2014 Explorer Limited. They don't bother me at all and have no apparent effect on the displayed video. So I'd say they're normal.
