The flicker sounds like you need to change the 'hz' input... Our tv adjusted it automatically once we plugged in and confirmed if we wanted to keep it that way or try a lower 'hz' rate?

Not sure about the internet thing?
#2
is the HDMI configured as "auto" , or have you tried manually setting the res / refresh ?
Do you have another HDMI cable you can try?

Is the Playstation using wireless internet? if so try plugging it directly into your router with an ethernet cable, as you could have contention on the wireless frequency. You could also change the "channel" the wireless networking is on. Try 12 or 3, as the are rarely used.

The settings will be on the Ps3, not the TV :thumbsup:

And plug out the HDMI cable before you attempt to change the settings...:thumbsup:

I turned it off before because I didnt have the time to fix it, turned it back on now and it seems fine

actually, scrap that, its flickering again and its taken 150 mins to download an update for need for speed

got to say the xbox is a lot easier to just plug in and play
