I have been using components for some time now, as the DVI picture became unstable (for me) a while back, (black/white outs etc...). Anyways yesterday I decided to give DVI another try. I calibrated another setting on my tv to get the picture just right for DVI, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much better I got it to look over the components! Everything was sharp, colorful, it had an over all smoother, richer look that I was quite happy with it... until I saw the black screens again! It seems that with *all* the premium HD movie channels, and espnhd I get these black outs every couple of minutes? Sometimes a little longer in between each black out, but it still happens too often to be able to enjoy a movie, or sporting event on these channels! It's odd that the exclusive VOOM channels do not suffer from this strange black out problem? Anyone else see this with DVI? I know Sean, and some others mentioned they saw this last week during a baseball game on espnhd, but is anyone experiencing it on, and not on the channels mentioned? It's such a shame, as I'd like to go back to using the DVI cable, as it did make VOOM look even better on my set.
