Recently installed a HDMI cable on my BH 200 hooked up to my Epson 1080UB. I sometimes get a flickering(blinking) of the image upon start up of my system. It can occur before the movie even starts to load. The HDMI cable is directly connected to the PJ so there is no switching device between the PJ and the BH 200. I guess it is some kind of handshake problem between the two devices. I can get around the problem by shutting off the BH 200 and turning it back on again. Any suggestions to cure this problem would be most appreciated. BTW, I experienced no problems when I ran the system on component.

First, try proper power on sequence: PJ first, AVR next, Player last.

If you run a really long HDMI cable (> 15ft), you need pay attention to the cable quality. Long cables are easy to mess up HDMI handshakes, especially in 1080p mode. If possible, get certified HDMI 1.3 cable.

Thanks Foxbat, I'll check the power on sequence, I'm using a harmony remote. Cabling is OK in so far as 1.3 certification goes, I have a 25' run, then a 6' from wall to PJ.

Power sequencing did not work. A little more info, when loading movie the flickering will stop. Flickering can happen on start up screen or home menu,
