Re: V6 box flicking on and off

It is the tv and V6 not handshaking correctly.

Try this  -   Turn everything off at the mains, then turn the tv on and turn to the V6 HDMI input for 30 seconds before switching the3 V6 back on.

Was the previous tv a 4K?

Re: V6 box flicking on and off

Morning, this is fairly common.

You need to ensure your hdmi lead is capable of 4k. But the main issue is your v6 resolution settings. Head into settings >>> video output >> output format >> change settings >> test formats. Follow the on screen prompts.

 

I imagine you've upgraded from a standard HD tv to 4k. You just need to help the v6 realise this. Let me know....

Hi thanks for the reply 

 

It’s got a 4K hdmi it runs my Xbox in 4K just fine it’s just the v6 box, I’ve done the video settings and doesn’t matter what setting it’s on still does it, 

I’ve also tried just selecting 1080p and unticking the other video options 

thanks

Re: V6 box flicking on and off

can you manually select all resolutions, return to home screen and reboot the box? is the sound constant when you are having picture issues?
