I have been struggling to get my SMP to work properly since I got it 4 months ago. My latest problem is that the audio & video blink out for a second and then come back on. This happens at random times and is not reproduceable. This has been happening with all types of media - mp3, flac, avi, vob, mkv. I am running everything from a 2tb WD hard drive connected to the front USB port.
Today I went to insert a USB thumb drive into the SMP so that I could roll back the firmware. I discovered that merely touching the SMP slightly would make the video blink for a second. I found that the HDMI cable is very finicky and really doesn’t stay securely in the HDMI port of the SMP.
I am trying to position the SMP to make it so the HDMI cable won’t move even the tiniest bit, but I don’t know if I will be successful with that.
Has anyone else had a similar problem?
Thanks for any help!
