I recently purchased a westinghouse 32" wide screen HD tv. It is a nice TV and i feel was worth the 600 dollar price tag (i know this TV isnt the best ever, but hey i am a college student so I dont exactly have enough money to buy a DLP blah blah). Anyway, I get a terrific picture through my DirecTV satelite and my DVD player and all the rest. But a few days ago I decided to use my friends employee discount and buy the "superior" cable, HDMI, to connect my satelite to my television. When I first connected it, it seemed superior, even on the 480i broadcasts. When I switched to 1080i it blinks and the picture goes in and out... much to my disappointment. I hooked my component cables back up and everything was perfect. Last night, out of curiosity, i tried my HDMI cable again and hooked it up and to my delight the picture was perfect and looked better than it had on component cables, and best yet no blinking or crazy resolution problems. After watching apolcalypse now until 6 am, i turned my tv off and turned it on this morning with the same HDMI hiccups. I have tried tinkering with the set up on the receiver and I cannot figure out what is wrong. Any help suggestions are appreciated. Forgive me with this is a common problem because I am a newb to this site and to HDTV. THANKS!!
