Fox News blacks out after 30 seconds

Fox News blacks out after 30 seconds. I can hear it but no video. Any one else have this issue?  Only this channel does it. If it doesn't get resolved I'll be cancelling cable.

Sounds like a temporary transmission issue. You can look at: Main Menu > Settings > System Information and make sure both SNRs on that page say good for the channel you are tuned to. If they do it is definitely a transmission issue. If not it may be an issue with your VMS box.

Channel 618, Fox News HD, is fine here in the Boston area. I have SD versions of HD channels blocked off so I can't see what 118 looks like.
