The second one seemed dandy at first but the other problem came back: after about 10 min. the whole screen flickered with a green tinge to it. After about 3 more minutes the screen went a solid green color even though audio was fine. After about 3-5 more min. of this it went back to normal.
If you caught it while it was still flickering you could see enough to go into settings and set output from 1080p to 720p and delay the inevitable. It only occurs on my Panasonic TC-P55ST50 I bought new off Amazon in November last year. I tried it on a friend's 55" Samsung LED TV from 2011 on my Asus computer monitor and even on my old CRT TV (with the adapter cable) in the basement. All others were fine.
I couldn't find any settings in the TV menu for HDMI that made a difference. It's not hdmi cables, not the port. My blu-ray player, cable box and even my old Seagate Theater+ don't have any issues.
I'm looking at other android boxes but can't shake the suspicion they are all rolling out of the same factory in China with the same chipsets. Can anybody verify they have a android streamer with an ST50 Panny plasma that play well together?
Were you ever able to find a solution for this issue? I have the 65ST50 and I am having the same problem. At first I thought it was the rom I was using but I have flashed the linux only xbmc version and it still happens. Everything will be fine and then all of the sudden I get green flickers and then a solid green screen. Sometimes if the xbmc screen saver kicks in it will correct the issue. I am really hoping we can put our heads together and find a solution for this issue. I finally got the midnight box to output and play 1080p and it is running beautifully except for the green flickers.
I have the 2.2 version of the midnight box. It seems to run fairly cool and has not gotten nearly as hot as my Sony Google TV box. I have the HDMI from the midnight box feeding into my Pioneer Elite receiver. Has anyone tried connecting directly to the panasonic tv? I might try this tonight to see if it helps. I can also post a picture for those that are not having the issue but may be able to help with ideas to get it resolved.
