HDMI issues abound with all providers and all TV manufacturers. Samsung does seem to have its fair share of the complaints, and not just with Verizon FIOS. Always make sure you have the latest firmware for your TV. Others seem to find success by reverting to component plus audio cables (still full 1080i). A quick search of these forum for "HDMI handshake issues" will reveal several threads for you to study. Also try other forums for other providers. Another resource is avsforum.com where you can specifically search for problems unique to your very model of TV.

I ordered new HDMI cables for 10 bucks, hopefully that works. I did try to update my TVs firmware but for some reason It did not work. I may need to try a different USB stick.  My friends sister also has the same problem and has a samsung as well but a different model.

It has only done it three times in the first week, and two of the times I was in the menu.  I did the self box diagonisis so I hope that wil fix the issue.
