Will Try that, and see what happens, and report back if issue remains or is gone. Since our DLP Televison blub went out, and can't afford new one yet, using a standby LCD 32 inch hooked up via HDMI, and can try a different cable, believe I got a spare around here.

If it's only happening on one channel, maybe it's a problem with that station's signal?
