I started to get flickering and pixelation from my cable box and it's kind of annoying.
Here's what I have tried:
After all of that, there is still pixelation and On Demand does not work
There are no spliters and I've tried using a Video-Audio cable instead of the Coaxial Cable.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
does the flickering happen when changing from SD to HD channels and vice a versa?
if so try changing the display mode to FIXED in the settings menu.
when i had mine on auto HDMI it would flicker when changing from SD to HD, but my tv could not handle the resolution changes or it didnt like it, so i now leave it fixed, in 1080i mode
We are suffering from picture issues (which sounds what you are getting - a combination of pixelation, stuttering and freezing) on HD channels only. We have an 8300 HD PVR as well as a 1TB eHDD. Three techs have been to our house. There are no signal issues. The cables check out fine. The first tech ran a new cable from outside into the house. They reconfigured our splitters. The problem persists. Some days the signal will be fine and on others it is so bad that we will switch to the SD station to avoid the show being ruined for us. The issue appears on both recorded shows and on live TV. It has been going on for the past few months, even before the firmware update and the switch to AutoHD. I have also noticed the picture issues are at their worst when two HD signals are coming in at once - recording one HD show while watching another HD show. The display mode is set to FIXED. I do not feel we are getting from Rogers what we are paying for!
For Some Time:
I am presently using a brand new LCD TV --> Samsung LN32C540
I am also using a brand new Rogers cable box --> Explorer 4642HD
For several weeks, everything was working, perfectly.
- No pixels
- No errors
- No flashes
I am also receiving "FLASHES".
This is "not" your home system. !
Rogers Cable System, is now supplying the consumer, with an old depleted system.
Many regular TV stations from the U.S. are now , High Definition.
This is only a Rogers Communication - Problem !
I have been putting up with flickering and sound breakup for a month or two now in the hope that it would go away -- but it hasn't.
This started on one HD channel - CTV HD and now is happening on CBC HD plus a couple of others. I have a 3250 box (purchased) which has been working fine for 3 yrs now with my Sony TV. I haven't contatcted Rogers yet as I'm sure they will say it is the STB or TV or something other then their signal.
Does anyone have any suggestions/input? I am considering changing to Bell or just Over The Air.
Thanks for any feedback.
