Re: Tv screen keeps going black

Does this occur when going to and/or returning from commercials?  This is probably caused by the commercials being at a different resolution and/or frame rate than the program you're watching.  The Roku/TV combination must reset its video parameters for each such transition and this can cause a short blackout.
