I've not tried that, but it's the same on DVR recordings

You need to eliminate the satellite or cable box the only sure way to do that is to try another input,we have plenty trouble boxes causing issues like this,what you can do if you dont have another input to try is this>>

please reboot the TV and any satellite or cable box by un-plugging both from wall-power wait 5 mins then re-plug back in again,let me know if there is any change please
