No, what's strange is the flaw that requires an audio input only when changing resolution. Initial start-up never causes the flickering. When my el-cheapo Insignia works like a champ I know there's strangeness afoot at the Circle-K.

I have seen this many times before, usually with Samsung TV's but a few Sharp's and continually am telling people to get a firmware update for their TV's. The reply I usually get is well it works without the receiver so the receiver is to blame. At this point I say, do yourself a favor and just try the firmware update. 99% of the time it corrects the problem.
Other than moving equipment around to isolate the true problem, firmware is always the first thing I attempt to upgrade. It's usually the small things that can fix the big problems. I recommend the same thing to my friends when they have issues with their components.
