Flashing Black Picture - 4HD

I've had the V6 box 3 weeks but no issues until Sunday.  When recording from 4HD (Sunday Brunch) and Come Dine with Me (today) getting flashing black every 5-10 secs and also now on LIVE tv.

 

Only these channels and not noticed on other channels HD or non HD.

 

Any known issues?

I'm getting this as well.  In addition to the whole screen going black for a fraction of a second I'm also seeing some flickering horizontal black lines appear if there is anything bright red in the picture.

Re: Flashing Black Picture - 4HD

I had this problem a month ago on various channels, engineer came out, change a few things. He had not heard of the problem before suggested it could be a setting on my TV (Samsung). No problems until this evening watching 4HD black screen for a second or 2 very intermittent. BS35 Bristol area
