I'm new to this forum and hope that this thread is in the right place.
I use Time Warner digital cable service in the Hudson Valley of NY State.
About two weeks ago I noticed that when I turn on my TV set I am always faced with the ON DEMAND screen. That's a minor annoyance. I don't opt for any of those and just hit some regular channel and proceed from there.
But at the same time I noticed something more bothersome. Every time I go from one channel to another I see the picture on the new channel for a second and then the screen goes totally black for one or two seconds and then the screen gives me the picture.
I mostly am wondering whether everyone has this happen who uses TWC or whether this is unique to my area. Also wondering whether this is something that has to be lived with or whether perhaps there was a way to prevent the momentary black screen. Like I said, it just started recently while I have had the digital cable for about a year. There have been no other changes in hardware (same 8300HDC DVR and using the same remote).
