DirecTV HD DVR to Sony HIscan

02-27-2006, 08:11 PM
I recently added HD to my DirecTV system. I have an older (4 yrs) Sony 53" HIscan rear projection(KP-53HS10) which uses a sepperate DTV input for digital signals. I've noticed that often the signal will drop out, resize or go blank for a few seconds. This never happened prior to HD. I use comp video cables for the connection and the TV can accept 480i, 480p and 1080i signals. Most of the issues ocur are when I keep the DVR at 1080i, but it also happens at 480i. I've talked to both DirecTV and Sony who blame each other for the problems. Has anyone had any experience with this?

It's probably doing this when it RE-SYNCS to the different video formats 480p/720p/1080i.

You can setup a Directv H-20 for force the output to a specific non-native resolution like 1080i and the TV won't have to RESYNC all the time.
