Static Poor Picture and Extremely Loud Static Noise When First Turn ON
When the cable box and TV are initially turned on (has to be off for at least 2 hours), there is loud static and very fuzzy picture. The remote locks up and doesn't allow the box to be turned off. After 20 to 30 seconds the TV turns off then back on. Any suggestions?
The TV has a very static looking picture, but what makes it worse, is the static sound that is at the highest volume even though I leave the volume extremely low or even set at 0. I cannot even turn off the TV at this point even with the TV (not cable) remote. Then after about 20 to 30 seconds, the TV shuts off then turns back on with a very brief static noise and then everything (picture and sound) is okay.
Everything was working fine until past few months. No changes with TV or cable box. Thinking it might have to do with X1 firmware changes and the timing when the signal is sent to TV while it is doing the HDMI/HDCP handshake (taking too long) and that is what we are seeing and hearing.
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
