Flashing source info on Sony Bravia


Standard Member
I have a Sony KDL-40W4500 LCD connected to a Sony PS3 Slim.

When I want to watch a DVD the screen goes black, flashes up the source info (a black rectangle accross the top of the screen showing HDMI 1 and some other details), flashes up the source again, then the screen goes grey, back to black, the source flashes again, and then flashes the source with a grey screen, then plays normally.

I have no other problems apart from that. It's just really anoying. Perhaps this is ... normal? The HDMI cable is brand new. I have no other signal dropping when playing games, during video or anything else.

Presumably it is sending source info to the TV, but just several times.

Any advice would be appreciated.
