Blinking Picture

The ITV pictures blink once every few minutes, where the black top/bottom borders close quickly, but not completely, and open straight away - producing a blinking/twitching effect. The top border movement is more noticeable.

 

This only happens to ITV channels, and only when the picture is set to display as 4:3 letterbox.

 

This combination appears to rule out the TV itself as no other channels are effected.

 

It's as if the picture tries to be widescreen for an instant then returns to its setting at 4:3. Naturally I've switched the box off and on again  after a pause. The blinking remains.

 

I'd like to hear from anyone else who has noticed this effect and hear of a possible solution.

Hi MDB,

 

Is this the only channel that you have noticed this problem with?

 

Thanks

Re: Blinking Picture

Hi Brian,

 

I went through other channels and the blinking is only on ITV channels so ITV1, ITV2 etc and also their +1 channels.

 

To confirm: BBC, UKTV channels, Discovery, QVC, Quest and Eurosport don't have this problem.

 

Regards
