I have a brand new Olevia 342i 42" LCD Monitor that is showing the same problem, though I don't think the particular monitor has anything to do with it.
It's a HDMI->HDMI cable from the 6412 III (firmware 16.20, s/w ver 74.53 - 3321) to the monitor and it works great until the monitor is shut off. When the monitor comes back on I see a blank black screen or snow. I have to turn the cable box off and then on again to get it working. It's like the cable box will not restore the sync/handshake/whatever with the monitor if it goes off.
I leave the cable box on all the time due to its inability to turn it off if it's in the middle of a recording (without stopping the recording first).
So if the TV was off and I want it on, the HDMI signal is dead until the cable box is turned off and then on again. Adding insult to injury, the interface to "stop recording and turn the box off" is on the screen that you now cannot see because the screen is blank! So every time you want to sit down to watch TV, you have to turn the monitor on, then if the DVR is recording, reach behind the cable box, unplug it, plug it back in, wait for it to reset, then the signal comes through again and starts recording again. Brilliant Motorola! How did you come up with such a seamless interface! lol
I'd use component, but this monitor only has 1 component input and that's used up by my DVD player. So the alternative there is to reach behind the tv and play cable swap everytime I want to watch the DVR or the DVD.
I can't find many other mentions of this particular problem. I wonder if the 6416 fixes this problem? Anyone have any idea?
I contacted Comcast and surprise surprise, they "never heard of it before". Funny too when I mentioned this site I got the company line "you can't trust anything from that non-comcast site", at which point I laughed in the rep's face reminding him that there's more useful info here than any comcast drone could possibly ever provide and suggested he spend some time here.
