when watching recorded history channel or another channel that the resolution is 1280/720/60 and you fast forward or rewind screen goes blank but recording still goes on.It seem that every time a commercial comes on and it is in 1920/1080/60 or 720/480/60 and as long as you are still forwarding or rewinding when the commercial comes on that is when screen goes blank until you mash play or commercial is way over. Just no way to tell when, so then you rewind or fast forward to get your show back, it starts all over again.Tv is almost new 59 inch samsung HD/3D smart tv and dvr is pace 788x. I just wish I knew some direction to go in,it will really suck to ask the cable company to see if they know of the problem after complaining all this time and receiving different dvr's.To think all this time it may not have been their fault. I supposed that is the right thing to do but still I would rather try to fix it before I approach them.The kid next door is good with electronics but he is mad at me so kinda up against it. Thanks

You try a connection other than HDMI. Just an idea I used and it can help at times.

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.
