Pace via component to Prima LCD
Thank You, 57, for such a quick and detailed response and I really appreciate your effort for going an extra mile and getting me those links: I will definitely look into them
However, I would like to explain why the technician and I concluded that the problem might be in Pace 551
This was my initial setup of cable, dvd, and TV:
since I have only one component IN in my TV and I didnt have a HDMI connection in my old DVD player that i used at the time, I didn't want to lose picture quality and use composite or S-Video cable so I decided to connect the DVD through Pace 551 the following way:
DVD connected via Component to Pace 551, and Pace 551 to the TV also via another component. This way Pace 551 acted as a switch between two signals: Cable and DVD. it worked fine although here I had the same blackout problem on cable and also on DVD. To assure that the problem is not with the TV, I connected my DVD straight to the TV via component and played the same scene where the blackout was and there was no blackout. I watched the whole movie and there were no problems. Meanwhile, Pace 551 still has the same blackout problem.
I hope I didn't make it all complicated with all this.
What I want is to know is where the problem lies, is it in the TV or PACE 551 so I know which technician to call. I want to have at least some arguments because both of them are going to blame the other one (unfortunately I cant get them both to come here at the same time so that they settle it) On top of that Videotron is going to charge me $70 if they say that there is no problem in PACE 551
P.S. I did try changing contrast and brightness of the screen, but although the blackouts were a LITTLE less frequent, but were still there.
Please let me know what you think
