Random video noise from new BD1250.

The manual claims this is caused by a TV not supporting HDCP but I have a fairly new Sony Bravia(<~6-7 months), which I'm pretty sure supports something that's been around for a while like HDCP.

It's sort of like horizontal digital artifacting, the kind that looks like large pixels, I'm sure you know what I mean.

I was going to try updating the firmware(not sure what version it's at off the top of my head, but it doesn't have Blackbuster or Youtube support, which I think is added in firmware) when I stumbled upon all the bricking nonsense, the latest ones on their site probably work(BEv2.07_090923_HTBD12XX_XAA.iso), but I'm not stepping out on that ledge without actually knowing.

So I was hoping someone might have some suggestions, thank you in advance.

dnscaching,

It could be as something as simple as the cable. If the television has HDMI, it has HDCP.

As far as updating, let me see what the progress is. If you do decide to update between now and then, I'd suggest using the CD method, but if you can wait, I'll see what our experts are hearing.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
