V+ Box or Philips LCD TV problem?


Standard Member
A plea for help from the very knowledgeable folk on this forum! I have a V+ box connected via HDMI to a Philips PF329830 32" LCD TV, the box is set to deliver 720P widescreen signals.

When watching any cable channel or programmes recorded on the V+ box, the signal repeatedly drops out leaving static/snow on the screen, this happens repeatedly and for a few seconds each time. It is completely random, sometimes happening every few minutes and sometimes not at all during an evenings viewing. I have tried three different HDMI cables all with the same result.

I have read elsewhere that some V+ boxes seem to have problems with their HDMI connectors and also read that some Philips TVs have a problem properly detecting the HDMI provided signal. It is fair to say that if I change the output of the V+ box to RGB SCART the signal loss doesn't happen at all.

Has anyone else experienced this and managed to work out if the Box or the TV is at fault?
