The only reason to say DV at all is in relation to what Sony firmware initiated the problem. No doubt the problem is primarily on Sony's end but the C61K "seems" to be the most problematic source device to trigger the issue.
Now back to our regularly scheduled DirecTV programming...
The "blanking" seems to be more prevalent lately, C61K>Denon X4200>Input 2 on Z9D. There was a Directv flash update this evening but I don't know what it updated, if anything related to our issue. I have HDR turned off. Lately the C61K loses picture, TV screen goes blank, then picture reappears, like its re-acquiring the signal??? Running premium certified HS cables from Monoprice. I am still waiting for Dolby Vision update for both my Denon X4200 and Oppo. Maybe those firmware updates will fix current issue???
