    Just now while watching Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN 2 Mets at Nationals My Screen went Black about 3 seconds and then the Channel Banner appeared at the top of the screen without me pressing or doing anything with the remote control. My Weather here is fine also. This ever happen to anyone? It has also been happening more than just this one time. In fact it has been doing it ever since updates and also scoreguide does not always pop up at the bottom right hand side of the screen every time when changing channels to Sports Channels. As i stated the top of the screen channel banner has been doing this about a week now. It does not do it often but it is doing it without me doing anything with the remote control.

    What model Receiver/DVR do you have?

    If the screen is going black first, it sounds like for whatever reason the receiver is maybe losing then reacquiring the channel as though you had tuned to it from another, thus temporarily bringing down the CB as with any other channel change.

    I am seeing lots of posts about the scoreguide problems. My receivers are doing the same thing. Sometimes it is there, sometimes not.

    For the picture problem:
    Try unplugging and then reconnecting the HDMI cable. It is possible that you do not have a good connection.

    You might also try a reset of the receiver.
    Menu, Settings, Reset, Choose the "Restart Receiver"
    This will take 6 to 12 minutes for it to go thru all it's checks, etc.. just like a PC does.
