There are a few channels that I get a black picture with sound. Have any idea why? Also when a show is broadcasted in HD my picture turns black but when the show goes into commercial the picture pops back up. Any ideas why? I love the picture on regular broadcasts. Looks great!

Sony 65" & Sony HD-100 receiver. Using only component video cables.

You might want to check with the station involved about this.

I have had a similar problem with my hd-100. It turned out that there was a problem how PSIP was formatted at the transmitting station. I called the station and told them of my problem and with in a day or two all was well.

Also check to see if your HD-100 has the current patch set. Search this forum for the key sequence to see the patch.

I use my HD-100 for OTA only and as such, I don't have a dish attached. To get the patches on my unit, I took the STB to my dealer and they hooked it up to a dish overnight. No setup, other than dish type was necessary. And like magic, the patches where there when I picked it up the next day.

I have three patches loaded and I don't believe that there have been any others.

Best of luck.
