    Hi there- my Romio OTA has been acting weird lately. While I am watching live TV, recorded shows, or streaming Netflix the picture will disappear for a few seconds, and then return. Sometimes it flashes intermittently for a few minutes, sometimes it will do it for hours. When it happens, if I pause what I am watching it is not affected by the signal drop from the box to my TV. After it is done flashing, I resume my show without any problems. I have also tried another TV and the same thing happens. Any recommendations?

    I'm having the same issue with a Roamio Plus. When watching a show, the screen goes black for a second or two and then returns to the show. It's a Roamio Plus that about 3 years old.

    The problem is like the capacitor issue on the S-3s. Could that be the problem or is it s signal that the HD is about to fail?
