Advertisements There is a similar report at TV screen goes black for few seconds ... but since my "black spots" are shorter (0.5 sec vs. "few" seconds), I thought I would post this. I have a Bolt+ connected to a Samsung TV with 4K. While watching play back, the screen would go black for about 0.5 seconds. This problem is not with the recorded show. If I skip back over the time where the outage occurred, there is no problem -- no 0.5 sec skip. If I continue watching, the black periods begin coming closer together. If I reboot the unit, I have no problems for about a week and then the skips reappear. Another reboot and I get another week of problem free watching. I almost never watch live TV so I don't know if the problem appears during live watching. I have an open problem on this but, like in the thread referenced above, one support person tried to tell me that since my SNR is 40 dB, that was the problem. I called back and got someone else. They had me reset the network connection so I'm going to have to wait a week to see if that fixes the problem. I'm 99% sure it won't but I've been wrong before. My guess is that their code has a memory leak but I don't know how to check that.
