ATV 3 Flicker at 1080p

Hey everyone,

I have a 1080p capable tv, but when ATV (2012) outputs at 1080p (or 1080i at 60 or 50 Hz) I get flickering picture and sound, with the result that I have to downgrade to 720p.

I've upgraded software/restarted/checked different ports but to no avail.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

How long have you had the ATV?

Try changing / shortening your HDMI cable.

You may have gotten a lemon.

Is returning it an option?

Should be. I'd just like to know if it's my tv or not.

Thanks for the advice!

Shouldn't be your TV (can't be 100% sure based on what we know), but replacing the ATV is far cheaper than replacing your TV.
