I've been a "HTPC" user for about 2 months now, and for the most part, I'm very pleased. I'm sure I don't have to sell the numerous *pros* of having a fast box handle all of my media needs/consumption to this crowd.
But I am having one problem, and perhaps this is a stupid question/issue, but I have my HTPC hooked up via HDMI to a 40" Samsung LCD (an older model, an LN-T4065F from 4 or so years ago) in my basement, and for my first HTPC I opted to go with a ligher weight video card (AMD Radeon HD 6450) just to test the HTPC waters.
Sometimes, while using, for unbeknownst reasons, the picture on my screen will *glitch*. Sometimes it'll recover and I can continue doing whatever I"m doing. But sometimes it won't. Sometimes the screen just turns blue, or worse yet just keeps glitching various shades of green, and nothing I do short of turning the TV off and back on will get a picture to come back.
This has never happened while watching TV or video in WMC, and not while watching Blu-Ray. Just while trying to configure things/work with recordings/ect.
Anybody else ever experienced this? Thoughts/suggestions on what I can to fix the problem? Is it an issue with my video card? My LCD? Connecting via HDMI?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts on this.
