When DVR is connected to the TV the picture gets distorted
I have had the cable company out several times to fix the DVR box and
everytime they come it seems like it's fixed and it never lasts as the picture on the TV always gets distorted. Now I feel that it might be my
Mintek DTV-260. If I disconnect the DVR then the picture is fine. Is there something special that has to be done in order to connect a DVR?

If the TV is receiving its signal from a cable TV box or DVR then you need to find out if the problem is in the TV or the cable box/DVR. Connect a different source to your TV such as a DVD or Blu-ray player and play a DVD movie. If the problem occurs again it suggests the TV needs repair. If the TV works OK when playing a DVD movie then that suggests that your cable box/DVR needs repair or replacement.
If your TV is receiving its signal directly from an antenna or cable outlet on the wall then you should try replacing the cable wire from the wall to the TV with a new wire. If that doesn't help then your TV probably needs repair or replacement.

OK, just kidding. If your TV or its remote control has a Reset button you can press it twice to reset the TV to original factory conditions (but you lose all customised picture and sound settings). If the TV receives its signal from a cable box or DVR, try connecting a different device such as a DVD or Blu-ray player and play a movie disc. If the problem on your TV screen still exists that suggests the TV needs repair or replacement. If the picture is OK when playing a DVD movie that suggests that your cable box or DVR is faulty and needs replacing (usually free from the cable TV company).
If you have the DVR connected to the TV with the Coaxial and the HDMI that is probably causing the problem I work for a Cable company and have dealt with this problem on numerous occasions. Try just disconnecting the Coaxial cable from the cable box that should fix this issue.
I sugest you to change the video resolution settings on the PS-3 to see if TV sets to any one resolution...if you have any other video out (analog from PS3)...connect the out to TV and check video at different resolutions. If PS3 has Deep Color settings turn it OFF.
1.This issue sounds as though the TV connection circuit has an issue. 2. You have changed the DVR and the HDMI cables and you still have an issue with the video (pink screen) indicates a video circuit issue ( improper voltage or current) at the video section of the circuit. 3. This will require some troubleshooting by a qualified tech. 4. To make sure, try connecting another properly working LCD TV to the cable box or DVR an check.If you get a picture and sound properly it is the TV. 5. Usually a cable box is QA'd (quality assured) by the company and will not be sent unless tested 1st
After spending a day trying to fix the TV, I found out the problem was actually with my cable box. I have an HD DVR recorder. We unplugged the cable box and plugged the TV directly into the cable in the wall and it worked. So we took the cable box back to our cable company and got a new cable box. (Can't live without the DVR!!)
I have the same problem on my 42 inch LG 1080p and I read in the manual this could be due to interference. I have messed around with my other electronics but couldnt find the problem. I do live in a apartment so I dont know if maybe another persons electronics are causeing it or not. I will be contacting LG regarding this issue although it wont get me anywhere im sure, but I will post again If I should find a soulution.
