I got this installed back in August & it's been fine until the last couple of days. Here is what is happening: I change the channel & then I won't get a picture - I can hit info or guide & I can see that I'm on the right channel but the picture doesn't show. Usually the picture will return after a minute or so. I go tired of this this morning while trying to watch the NFL so I poked around in the back & everything was nice & tight except that the component cable connection to the back of the genie wasn't as tight as it should be. I got it seated correctly & that appeared to fix it. Later on though, it happened again. I had another set of component cables so I tried those & so far it's only happened once & then the picture returned. I've been changing the channels often this evening & everything has been fine.
The weird thing is that I was using the PIP this afternoon & switched from red zone to another channel & the picture wouldn't show on the left channel (the one w/ sound) but I still had a picture on the right channel.
I've checked my other components -blue-ray, etc. & those don't appear to be affected.
It has been unseasonably cold here (below 25') could that be a problem? Or do you think there is a problem w/ genie's component connection? I do have the protection plan so I'm covered if it's a genie problem. Thanks
