I've been having problems with HDMI flicker lately. The initial setup was a bluray player and Directv STB. The STB went through the bluray player (a cheap HTIB) and the bluray player HDMI out went to the TV. The flicker would only happen on content generated by the bluray player (bluray and regular DVD, Netflix, even the main menu flickered). BUT, Directv content was fine. I blamed the HTIB, and since I was planning to replace it anyways, I bought a new Sony Bluray player. This time, the hookup goes through an HDMI switch to automatically toggle STB and Bluray content. Guess what, same problem. Flickering from the Bluray connection, Directv content is fine. So, I switched HDMI ports on the TV, moving the HDMI cable to the next one down. The flicker improved but has not gone completely away. Is this a cable problem or TV input problem? Why is the Bluray connection a problem but the STB is not? The TV is a 3 year old LG 47SL90. I'm hoping to get some direction before I invest in new cable and have to run it through the wall again. The cable is also about three years old.
