When some commercials come on while watching HD, the picture flickers for a few seconds. It then stops, but it happens often. I'm on Shaw Direct.
I have the basic box HDDSR 600.
Without any other information (All channels? All programs?)
I would say that the resolution is different on the commerical than the program is broadcasting, so your TV or the satellite terminal has to change it's decoding, takes a few moments for it to 'catch-up' again.
That makes sense--it seems random, but maybe it is linked to specific channels.
Hello again rogergraves. Are there any particular channels this is happening on? Any particular shows or times?
Hello rogergraves. Let us know if there are any particular channels/programs this happens with.
CTVHD, TSNHD, HDSNP but also BRAVO 165--not HD
During all commericals? Or only some? All programs?
The commericals where this happens, do they have black-bars on any of the sides? (while the program you were watching does not)
Not all the time and not all channels--no black bars, just a kind of seizure-inducing rapid flickering for up to 20 seconds.
Hopefully this is something roryg and/or owen might be able to assist further with.
Is there any particular ad(s) you're noticing this on? I don't know if this would have anything to do with it, but what kind of cable are you using to connect your receiver to your TV with?
I think it is an issue with the tv set--started showing up when watching a DVD. I phoned Samsung and they suggested a change in a setting that seems to have cleared it up.
I'm glad to hear it! Let us know if there are any specific issues with the receiver in future.
