Hdtv picture freeze

I have comcast cable with motorola dvr, and when switching from analog or digital to hdtv the picture often freezes and I have to unplug the tv to start over. I can avoid the problem by changing the component input on the tv before the channel change and after 4 or 5 seconds switching to the correct component. Is there another way?

I also have a Brand new Sony Bravia 52" LCD with Comcast Cable (motorola box).When switching between HD Channels sometimes the left side of the screen shows a smushed version of the new channel, and the right side is a frozen picture of the previous channel. I correct this by switching to a non HD channel and back. Cable or TV problem I wonder?

I have a Philips DVDR 3575H. using Comcast's


Try this set up-

Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).

Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.

Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.

This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.

When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.

*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

Screen freeze and is distorted then comes back to good picture. Happens every 10 minutes or so.


I get this a lot with my regular old TV, and I'm pretty sure it's due to the cheap digital-cable converter that Comcast supplies. Are you connected to cable? Digital? Comcast? The more "yes"s, the more likely that's your problem, not your TV.

TV freezes when switching to a digital channel


The problem your describing can be contributed to your cable box. Depending on your cable company there are times when the box has trouble translating the signal to the tv. You tv is operating normally. Suggest to the cable company to switch your box.

JVC HDTV picture freezes


Try playing some DVD's for a number of hours to see if the fault is the DVR, or actualy the TV set. There is very little in these TV sets that can cause a picture freeze and still have sound!

Here's how to fix it:

The cable box internal menu will display (Not the Comcast one the Motorola one-- i.e. Display ratios-16:9 etc It's in black and white)
Use the arrows to cursor to the Closed Captioning and toggle to "Disabled" Press Manu again to exit and Voila!

Power the box on an have at it
