Question about Televison & Video
I have a Samsung HP-S5073 Plasma HDTV connected to a Verizon Fios Motorola HD-DVR via HDMI cable. After approximately 30 minutes, the screen goes blank but the sound stays on, the DVR is hot enough to fry an egg on it! The DVR is not enclosed, it's sits on a stand 3 feet under the TV & is well ventilated by the breeze coming through the front door, I know ventilation is not a problem. To see if it's a DVR or HDTV problem, I disconnected the DVR & connected a play station & played a DVD, the DVD played for over an hour without any problems. I then connected a none HD Fios receiver to the HDTV & after 30 minutes the screen went blank, same situation as the DVR. I then connected a CRT TV to the Fios none HD receiver & the TV worked fine, it stayed on for the remainer of the evening. Verizon has sent me out a replacement DVR which I should get today. The DVR I have now is brand new, I have had Fios for 4 weeks & this happens every day & night whenever the TV is turned on. I had a Directv HD-DVR up to 4 weeks ago without any problems.
If you can first connect the Fios box via component and that will rectify the issue and still allow HD. HDMI is funny, if there is anykind of communication issues between the TV or the Fios box you see what happens. You might also call Samsung to see if there is ANY firmware/software updated for your TV specifically to fix such an issue with the Fios/Mortorola connection. If there isn't then the issue is the cable box since the TV works ok on HDMI with other devices.
