Re: picture flickering on and off intermittently

What type of tv is it?   It is a common problem with Sky boxes too and some tvs seem to have the issue more than others.

Often trying a different HDMI cable fixes the issue.

What make/model tv is it - you may actually need to change a setting on the tv.

LG seems to suffer more than others - which makes me think it may be a setting somewhere on the tv.

Ensure the V6 video output settings are 1080p  -   and if its a 4k tv 2160 and 2160passthru too.

Ensure the tv firmware is up to date too - and try a different HDMI socket.

This may help - TV Screen Goes Black Randomly 

Also try powering everything off at the mains for 20 seconds  -  switch tv on and switch the the V6 HDMI and wait 20 seconds - then power on the V6.

Re: picture flickering on and off intermittently

I think it’s the v6 that’s the problem not my tv or hdmi I’ve had a quick look and it seems others have the same issues.
