Pink Flash on Screen (WD TV Live)


#1

**Hi,

While watching some Blu-ray movies that I ripped and encoded to 1080p, I noticed that from time to time my LCD screen would turn into pink for like a millisecond (like a really quick flash of pink), then go back to normal. I never had this problem with my old Gen 1 WD TV.

I got my WD TV Live connected through HDMI 1.3a to my Samsung LN32B530 LCD and through USB 2.0 cable to my WD My Book Home Edition hard drive; its video setting is set at 1080p 24Hz / Auto (color space) / 12 bit (deep color mode).

Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance.**

Does it only do this when your playing 1080p videos? What about when you play lower quality files? Can you provide a mediainfo log on one of the files? (google “mediainfo” for the tool to get this)

Yes, the pink flashes happen when watching large 1080p movies. Here’s a mediainfo of one of my 1080p movies:
