Had the TV6 box installed a few weeks ago but not had much chance to test it out since. Finally sat down last night to watch some tv and the picture and sound is ok for anywhere between 10 seconds to a minute then the screen goes black and the sound cuts out for a few seconds. This continues at random intervals, sometimes as much as 5 times per minute.
I checked all the connections, i tried rebooting, I changed over the HDMI cable. The situation continued. I then plugged the HDMI cable into HDMI2 from HDMI 1 on the tv and it worked perfectly! This was until I turned the tv off and when I switched it back on again... same problem.
The tv is Samsung UE65KS7000 and is reporting resolution as "UHD 3840x2160 / 50p HDMI UHD Color"
Not all 4K Ultra HD TVs support HDCP 2.2 on all HDMI sockets. This is particularly true of older 4K Ultra HD TVs where HDCP 2.2 may only be supported on one HDMI socket.
On some popular 4K Ultra HD TVs the following HDMI sockets can be used:
Samsung - HDMI (MHL) socket if available on your TV, otherwise HDMI 1
LG - HDMI 1, labelled as HDCP 2.2
Sony - please check the Sony website for your 4K Ultra HD TV model
Panasonic - HDMI 1, HDMI 3 or labelled as 4K
These are given as guidance only, so please check the manual for your TV to ensure you’re using the correct HDMI socket.
On some of the older threads in the V6 forums users have suggested it might also be worthwhile contacting Samsung UK support as with older TV's one of their representatives can sometimes remotely access your TV to perform a HDMI EDID rewrite before establishing the connection with the VM box and the other HDMI-supported external devices.
