Hello,
I am new to the forum but not new to hd. I recently upgraded to the new at9 and a h20. I have a sammy hls6187. My h20 is currently hooked up via hdmi and the picture is incredible. I am using a 24 awg hdmi wire.
the problem i am having is i can not go above 480i without the picture flashing. I have tried all the settings in between. I am mixed between the wire not able to handle the signal or a faulty H20.
any suggestions

It could be ....

* defective HDMI cable/connector (but probably not related to wire size)
* defective Samsung TV HDMI input (do you other HDMI sources you can try?)
* defective H20 HDMI output

What happens if you connect via component video cables instead of HDMI?

I believe that you need to connect the TV via Component and disable all 480 output modes on the H20. Then, HDMI should work.

Its a HDMI hand shake problem that the H20 100 has. Directv is aware. And was to be fixed in a Sept software update. When it will be fixed is not known.

Problem not just with the H20. Some of the cable set-top boxes have similar HDMI problems, and I've seen a couple of reports of problems with up converting DVD players. Some TVs seem more problematic than others - unfortunately Samsung seems to be mentioned most often.

Are the system updates downloaded from the satellite, or are they over the phone line?

Software updates come via the satellite. Once an update is released, it takes a few weeks to propagate it to everyone (typically it starts on the west coast and works its way east).
