Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V2500 40 in. LCD HDTV
I experience periodic screen blackouts on my one year old Sony LCD tv. The tv is connected by HDMI cable to a cable box with built in DVR.
The blackouts only last a second or two and are very intermittent. I have gone several weeks without experiencing any, and have had some nights where I experience several within a 5-10 minute period. I have changed cable boxes, changed HDMI cables, and switched to the second HDMI input on the back of the tv. I have never experienced the problem when viewing a DVD. Also when it happens while watching live tv if I immediately rewind the recorder and view the same program segment again the blackout does not occur.
The problem is your cable box. I know you said you replaced it, but I work on TV's everyday and, sorry to say this but cable box HDMI outputs have serious issues, like no or intermittent sound and video. I have seen customers exchange their cable boxes 5 and 6 times and still have the problem. Your best bet is to use the component outputs of your cable box, visually you will not see a picture difference between component and HDMI when using a cable box. Your other solution is to get satellite; I have NEVER seen an HDMI issue with a satellite box
