LN52A750R1FXZA to Uverse box - Audio YES - PICTURE NO??

by tpeterso1ASU / November 2, 2010 3:38 AM PDT

Using a HDMI cable to connet TV to ATT Uverse set top box ( set top box mfg is Motorola).

Periodically, when I turn both items on, no picture but audio comes thru. Then must go thru ridiculous process of unplugging all cables, powering TV and DVR/Settop box off.

Also, when this is happening, pressing the menu button on remote also results in no picture...not even getting 'white snow'.

I've had this happen twice and my HDTV is a Sony. This is a brand new, ATT updated by the tech Uverse box.

Looks like Uverse has some bugs.

Since it's only happened twice

I clicked the power off button on the remote. Then I switched the power off on the power bar for a 10 count then back on. Then I pressed the remote on the uverse remote.

This is only 2 times in 2 weeks so you wonder if this will continue. But it's a sure thing that with all that code and that the dvr has died once already in less than a month that uverse is far from ready for primetime.

Try using composite/component connection. On my Sammy LN40, actually think I got a better pic vs using HDMI.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
