      Hi there,

      Have an occasional irritation with my Denon 4200!

      On my 4k sources (Panasonic UHD player / PS4 Pro) I occasionally have the picture go black and then a snowy / static screen. If I switch to an alternative source and back again, it's all fixed. Have checked my HDMI cable ratings and don't think it's that. Only happens at 4k resolution. Never once happened on a 1080i/p source.

      Anybody else had this or any ideas of fixing?

      Thanks,

      A

      Just in case anybody else ever gets this, fixed!

      Was a 'faulty' HDMI cable from amp to TV. I'm guessing couldn't handle the data rate, despite being rated HDMI 2.0. Fixed by replacing with a cheap Amazon £3.99 cable...
