Picture "blinks" on playback

Hello,

I have recently started getting a problem with my V6/LG whereby the tv screen "blinks" once (goes black for a second) when playing back pre-recorded programmes. This happens roughly every 10-15 minutes and has only just appeared after 6 months of trouble-free viewing. If I rewind the programme, the "blink" is not there so the recording must be ok.  I have tried re-starting the V6 box.

Any suggestions welcomed.

Re: Picture "blinks" on playback

Is this happening on any particular channels/recordings?

What's your model of TV? And what's your video output set to? Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Video output

It doesn't seem to be any particular channel(s).

Any difference if you drop video output to 1080? Let the TV upscale to 2160

Something else to eliminate in the meantime.

Strange it didn't happen before but I'll certainly give it a try - thanks.

Re: Picture "blinks" on playback

I set it to 1080p and it seems much better although it still blinks occasionally.

There are three settings for 1080 namely 1080p, 1080i and 1080p 24/25/30 fps(pass-through). Is 1080p the correct one?

Thanks,

Ian
