    For the most part I've been happy with Voom, but recently I've encountered an annoying problem which I can't seem to resolve. While watching any channel, local, HD, or SD somewhere between every 30secs - 2mins the picture resets and I momentarily see a green bar in the middle of the screen. The whole process takes about a second but is really disruptive. I've reset the STB twice and the issue still hasn't gone away. It got so bad while watching a local channel the other night, I had to switch to cable.

    There have been clear skies in my area since the problem started occuring, so I don't think rain fade could be the culprit (I live in Phoenix, so this is rarely a problem). Signal strength from the satellite is 95-96, and at the time the problem was really bad, my OTA strength was 70.

    Just wanted to see if anyone had experienced this issue before calling Voom...

    I haven't experienced it, nor have I heard anyone else with it. I have noticed some weird bugs that have been cropping up the past two days that hasn't cropped up for a month. Yesterday during clear skys I lost signal twice requiring a reboot to get the signal back, and today the STB froze up twice and required a reboot before I could use the remote again.

    I don't know, here lately when I see something weird I think they are getting ready to send the new software.

    Turns out my resolution setting was incorrect. Voom did a good job of helping me with this.
