It's seems to happen on only a few stations, and not all the time. For example when my kids watch cartoons in the morning we know it will most likely cut out during a certain cartoon. Also it seems to cut out now and again on CTV. Some channels it doesn't happen at all. I'll be contacting RCA, when I called my cable server they thought it was the cable itself, but it's not.

Dude check your A/V or HDMI cables or whatever you use. HDMI cables can be tricky. Make sure that the different shades of color are matched up exactly. Ex: make sure light blue isn't plugged into the dark blue slot. it may not appear as if it matters but trust me it does.
Hello kurzty, please use the INPUT button located on either your remote or on the TV UNIT to change the existing input station/video. Keep cycling through the input selections until you see the regular programming again. If you can at LEAST see the menu pop up on the screen, you know nothing happened to your projection device. which means your NOT going to have to pay several HUNDRED bucks for a repair if your not under warranty. Write back if you have any more problems. My username is bbl242003
Technology changes at a high rate of speed, as we all know. And High Definition (HD) has come a long way in a very short period. Since your television still works perfectly otherwise, I don't think that it's a problem with the set itself. It may only be a victim of technology.
Does this only happen with High Def channels? Does it happen every time you change to another HD channel? If you answer 'yes' to either of these, it is most likely due to the television's processing capabilities. Because of the high amount of data that is required to deliver HD content, manufacturers have found creative (but not necessarily convenient) ways of dealing with the processing issues (blank screen delay for example). Since the audio and video signals for any given television station (either HD or regular) are transmitted separately, the television has to process that data internally so that you get the picture and sound aligned properly when you are watching it. HD broadcasts are much more demanding than regular stations requiring manufacturers to constantly improve this processing speed with every new model. On some televisions, the channel remains blank for a few seconds to allow the television to configure all of the information so it looks good when it's ready, which could explain the delay you are describing. At the time your television was manufactured, this may have been the best technology your manufacturer had to offer. On my personal flat panel, I get the picture and sound right away, but I have to wait about 15 seconds for the sound to catch up to the picture which I think is more annoying than being forced to look at a blank screen. But that's just me.
Sometimes this has nothing to do with your TV. It is the actual station that is out of sync with its sound vs pic. If it is on ALL channels then you need to replace the audio board. The Olevia is not a mainstream TV and there have been a few of these that have had faulty audio. If its consistent and under warranty get a replacement.
