    You've been at this some time haven't you? It sounds to me like a poor connection somewhere. If you have an expensive HDMI cable, they tend to be thick and heavy, try to support it with a bit of blue-tack or something at the point of entry. Also, if I remember correctly from one of your other threads, you're using a DVI/HDMI converter, is it a quality one, or was it free with your computer? You might want to consider spending some money on a new connector/cable.
    Set your system going so that you can see the fault at it's clearest, then support each connection in turn (with your finger) till it goes, support the offending connection permanently as described above.
    I've never been a fan of quick push in connections (USB/HDMI etc), I prefered the old screw in D sub type, you knew they were connected.

    Good luck again, Mick. :thumbsup:
