new LCD TV flicker/flash with HD DVR box 8300HDC

by prashanthkk / December 28, 2008 11:58 PM PST


I am VERY new to the LCD / HD world so please forgive me if I ask dumb questions.

We bought a new Vizio 32" tv for the family for Christmas and hooked it up via HDMI to a Time Warner cable 8300HDC dvr.

This was set up last Friday. It worked very well all weekend, but last night I was watching the NFL game on NBC in HD and towards the end of the game I noticed a flash/flicker from the screen. It did this 3 or 4 times in a 3 second intervals on several HD channels. The DVR seemed to stutter a bit too.

Then it stopped doing that and has been fine since.

I am concerned it is the TV first, but I have concerns about the DVR as well.

Any help or advice is appreciated!
