Picture/audio problems on my HDTV
This is a cable box problem. Could be a lack of signal stregnth or bad HDMI output.
The SA boxes have a very bad history of this, try using the component video output and see if the problem persists.
The HDMI is a real glass jaw of those boxes; but this problem could absolutly be your incoming signal...high def channels require more signal strength and that is what causes audio drops, pixilation and flicker.
If it was the HDMI in the receiver/tv you would get:
- Black screen, Pink fuzz or green streak dropouts.
- Audio cutting in and out
- Not pixilation!
So what is my approach? If the box is rented or under warranty get it replaced. If the problem persists then call your cable company and arrange a service call at their expense.
If the box is not under warrenty go ahead and call the cable company and complain about a poor signal. If the signal is good, use the component video output...it looks almost identical anyway.
Let me know if this helps,
