Have had Fibe TV service for about 1.5 months now; really enjoying the service and no real complaints except this problem which I didn't seem to have at the beginning...started slowly...but seems to be happening more frequently now and and can be a real pain.
Have the VIP 2262 PVR connected to my Sony Z series LCD TV via HDMI cable; will be watching TV and the TV will reboot...and this will often go into a loop doing this.
Only thing I have found that sometimes fixes it is to do a reset on the PVR using the selection in the menu.
Have tried putting the PVR and TV on in different order; doesn't seem to make a difference.
Based on my reading on this forum, I understand that this is probably an HDMI incompatability between the PVR and the TV.
I believe the firmware on my tv is up to date; I had updated it several months ago to the one found on the Sony site; checking recently it still seems to be the current one.
Of course have never seen this issue on my PS3 which is also connected via HDMI. Gonna try swapping the cables to see if it makes any difference; maybe the HDMI cable has gone bad ? I doubt it !
Is my only solution to go to Compenent cables ? Will this make the picture I am seeing inferior ? I believe HDMI is digital and Component is analog.
I would not miss the audio coming via HDMI as I don't use it as I have an optical cable going from the PVR to my Denon...no hdmi capability on the Denon
