Now, here is another dilemma. A while ago, i had both Component and HDMI going into my receiver for i wanted to switch back and forth between both video streams. The reason i did this was that the Moxi wasn't tuning in some channels and claimed something like "I wasn't a valid subscriber..." which was nonsense ofcourse.
Anyways, i wanted to see if the problem was HDMI specific or on both component and HDMI , hence i set up my Anthem prepro (D2v) to be able to watch the HDMI video or the Component video streams.
Now the problem i'm having is that when i switch to the HDMI input of my pre-pro, i get video fine (on a channel i manage to tune in correctly). When i switch the pre-pro over to the component video input, i get the video fine on my TV BUT, it blanks out for about a second or so every 2-4 seconds...repeatedly. This gets progressively worse with time. Its as though someone is turning the video stream on and off in a random manner.
Then when i switch back to the HDMI input, i get normal video but the colors are all bad amd messed up. Now i don't know if this could be my Anthems problem or not but their tech support folks have said they can't reproduce the problem in their labs.
The urgent issue i'd like to resolve first is the video blanking problem. Why does this happen and how can i resolve it?
