TV flickers, HDMI?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a 1080p capable TV that I bought around thanksgiving. It has been working fine until about 2 weeks ago.

I have a xbox hooked up to my TV through HDMI for games/netflix. Every 20 mins now the TV flickers like someone turned off the tv and then turned it back on (I see the input dialog in the right hand corner every time this happens [Like how you would see the channel # if you were watching tv])

I have been using this cable since day 1, so I don't understand. It doesn't happen if I'm watching TV (through coaxial cable), so I have to assume its something with the HDMI cable or frequency.

What make/model cable box are you using and on what provider?

It doesn't do it with TV. Only through my xbox which is connected to the TV with an HDMI cable in 1080p

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...00_i00_details

Thats the cable, cheap but good reviews, so I don't know.

Its worth noting that my laptop is next to the xbox too. Could there be some interference?

Its almost like it loses signal every 20 mins.

A few steps to troubleshoot. Try another hdmi input on the tv. Try bringing the xbox and cable to a friends house and try with another tv. Get another hdmi cable (from monoprice).
