    Monitor Interference
    Just got an Apple TV.
    I am connecting it to an older, rear-projection, HD capable TV set.
    The HD input is HDMI (19-pin rectangular plug)
    I am using a DVI-D to HDMI 6-foot cable.
    Apple TV fires up and displays menus etc.
    Problem is that every 2 seconds or so there seem to be a spike that throws off the display, causing it to flicker and then re-stabilize.
    Any suggestions, other than to replace the TV set?
    Thanks in advance for any helpful input.

    Have you re-calibrated for screen size and refresh rate. Also cables can be damaged too.

    The cable is brand new but I will check.

    Where and how do I re-calibrate for screen size and refresh rate?
    Do I calibrate the AppleTV or my old TV?
    I set the AppleTV to 720-60Hz and RGB High
    This is supported by the TV
    The TV features 4 fixed sizes. Adjustment not available.

    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I just ran a software update. Now the screen is black and I cannot access the AppleTV menu anymore.
    I think I'll return the thingy and keep downloading movies from the web, using the computer.
    Thanks for all the suggestions.
