First off, let me apologize if this is not posted in the correct forum, but I'm trying to determine where my problem lies. Purchased a Sony 50A200 TV around Thanksgiving and signed up for digital cable trough my local provider about 2 weeks later. Cable co. brought a SA Explorer 8300 HD DVR box and connected it with component cables. Knowing that I need to upgrade my AV receiver and DVD player in the very near future, I have been reading reviews and scouring different AV forums for the past 2 weeks to gather info. I decided my first purchase would be some HDMI cables. They arrived yesterday and I decided to go ahead and hook up the SA box directly to the TV through HDMI eliminating my first set of 5 cables. Powered on TV and STB and both audio and video signal make it through w/out any HDCP warning. Problem is, both the picture and sound are flashing on and off. Double checked connections at both ends and the cables were tight. Tried a different HDMI cable and same problem. Any ideas?
