Pink Flashes In the Middle of the Movies


#1

I have the WDAVN00 with the newest firmware using a wd passport essential hooked up thru a denon avr 790 and it goes to a samsung lcd. The two files i have tried playing through the wd tv were both 1080p and .mkv files. Both times the i have tried to play the videos the get pink flashes on the screen somewhere randomly in the movies and i have to shut it down and try to play it again. the wdtv is set to auto and its using hdmi and I have the audio set to digital

I have no idea what else to do. Please Help

Have you tried another HDMI cable?  Ther have been times when the cable does not go all the way into the WD box and does not make good contact.


#3

The cable i have is a Monster M1000  and i havent tried any others just never had an issue with this one. And would it just stop working after an hour if it was the cable wouldnt it just  not work right from the start?


#4

Just want to point out here that the reason the HDMI cable doesn’t go all the way into the WDTV is because the ‘engineers’ that designed this didn’t follow the mechanical specification of the HDMI spec.

never had an issue with this one    Sounds like you have an issue now.

  And would it just stop working after an hour   You never mentioned this in your post.

Try connecting it directly to you TV via HDMI and see what happens, try another cable if you have one.
