  1. Hello to all! I have a Vizio E370VL flatscreen tv hooked to a metrocast hd box. When I go to turn my tv on and hit hdmi 1 the tv comes on and says retrieving data then it says not support. It then takes five minutes for the picture to come on but it flashes for a few minutes and then settles down and plays normally. Is there a simple solution to this?

    I would first try a different HDMI cable. HDMI does a 'handshaking' to ensure that the units on both ends of the cable are HDCP compliant. That is sometimes slow. This is for digital copy protection. Thank Hollywood for this.

    As it does work (eventually), I'd say the cable is OK. Most likely a fault (or glitch) with the cable box or TV.

    Should be easy enough to get the box swapped out.
