TV: Sony KDF-E55A20
AV Receiver: Onkyo HT-R640 (came with HT-S894 system)
STB: Motorola DCH6200 -Firmware: 18.20
Cable provider: Brighthouse Networks - Livonia, MI
================> AV Receiver
The Onkyo HT-R640 has 2 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output.
For the 2 weeks now, since I plugged in my new STB, I experience an intermittent "green screen of death" (Solid GREEN screen w/ audio) when watching cable. Sometimes it stays green. Sometimes it flashes off and my picture comes back. This happens so often that my cable is completely unwatchable. On 2 occasions instead of a green screen, I got a blue screen that warned me that HDCP failed and to use component video (for many reasons this is not an acceptable solution)
This NEVER happens when I watch a DVD on this system.
I tried this configuration: STB
This had the exact same results as my other set-up.
I have also tried switching out my HDMI cables, but this did not help.
My wires are routed with extreme care, there is no unnecessary pressure on my connectors.
An interesting side note is that before I got this current STB, I had basically the same model but it was the DVR version (I wish I knew the model # and FW version). This box worked flawlessly for the month that I had it.
At this point I don't know what to do.
1. Try to exchange my box for a different one (same model)
(perhaps I have a bad box?)
2. Pay the extra $7/month for the DVR box (even though I don't really want/use the feature)
(I am also concerned that my previous good experience was a fluke?)
3. I could go with the CableCard but I think this costs me an extra $9.50/Month and I lose some features.
Feel free to PM me or Email me if you have any possible solutions to my problem.
Thanks in advance!
