Screen freezes

by grizcoach / November 16, 2013 3:52 PM PST

I have a new 60F7100Af. I've noticed that there seems to be a screen freeze on one or two channels. The picture freezes for a fraction of a second and then continues. Is that just the channel or has anyone else noticed this effect?

This happens on my old HDTV too

Part of the move to digital OTA (over the air) HDTV seems to be acceptance of this over "snow". As the digital feed is dropped, instead of the old snow or such you used to get the image freezes up and resumes when there is more data.

As this is OTA, and seen on all the sets I've seen to date I wonder why the makers don't add this nugget to how things work today?

Thank you for the reply. MY TV is getting a DirectTV HD signal that goes thru a Samsung Blu Ray Player with an HDMI cable. The previous HDTV, a Sharp, didn't have the problem.

Then what I noted does not apply.

"on one or two channels." is why I wrote about snow versus what we see today. I can't guess what's up with those channels but the usual cable box has every channel, well after it is converted to HDMI should be the same. However during the Olympics it was easy to find digital issues with the new digital systems. From the blockiness of low data rate to image freezes it's pretty clear the industry has taken steps forward and backward.
