Philips 60pp9202 picture problem (hard to describe)

I have a Philips 60pp9202 HD RPTV. The convergence ICs were toast when I got it, so I replaced both of them (forgot to check the resistors though). This problem has always been there, but it seems to be getting worse. The picture does not fill the entire screen, it is "wavy" at the edges. Whenever a bright picture is on the screen (blue/white background, lights, etc.) The screen distorts even more. When I switch my Xbox to 1080i, the screen distorts to a point where it is almost unusable.

I am able to line up the convergence fine, so I don't think it is a problem with that (the convergence on the picture and video below is off because we have to keep rolling the TV over a concrete floor and it vibrates out of place.)

Here is a picture that I took while on the standard definition coax input.

I took this video on 480p over Component connections on an xbox 360. I included a short section where I turned it to 1080i to show the problem

One more note, there was a broken trace going to one of the pins on the IC, I repaired and and it seemed to fix the convergence issue fine, but not this.

EDIT: also, the tv makes an incredibly loud buzzing sound on 1080i, this was not there when I first started using it.

Any ideas what this could be, I have looked everywhere but I really don't know what to call it.
