"Receiving Auto Control Signal (now)." - huh?

My new Roamio Plus is showing some occasional SLOW channel changes. I am then presented with a plain text message at the top left of the screen, "Receiving Auto Control Signal (now).", just after the picture is displayed.

Most channel changes seem about right (~3 secs - same as my Premier), but these odd changes, maybe 1 in 5 changes, takes more like ~5 sec to complete.

Any ideas?

Did you try Google? Looks like plenty of hits for that message. Even some linking back here from several years ago.

Google does show several hits on that search string, but but not provide too much in the way of diagnosis or corrective action. I figured TCF would be more direct!

From what I can gather, it appears to be an HDMI handshake issue, but not clear if it is a video or audio issue. Could be the HDMI cable/connectors, or the HDMI ports on the Roamio or TV (Sharp Aquos).

I do also see a frequent PINK (magenta) flash on some channel changes from the guide. Maybe my cable is bad, though it had been used on my AppleTV for a long time without similar issue.
