Frequent black screen, Nvidia vertical sync woes - Im going to kill myself, HELP


I am hoping you guys can help me with this problem I have. I have a 75inch Samsung TV. Its a newish model purchased in 2015. I have a Denon AVR 2300W and run everything through it. I also have a 1060 card on my HTPC and I am trying very hard not to throw out the Nvidia card that I just bought. It is a replacement for a 960 that I had.

I have issues where the TV goes blank for a few seconds (audio still playing) and then comes back on. This problem refuses to go away no matter how many combinations of settings I use in the Nvidia control panel. I even changed my card from a 960 to 1060 because I thought my GPU was faulty.

I have changed the HDMI cable twice too but I still get frequent black screens. They appear for a couple of seconds and then back to normal.

I have tried everything that I have read on numerous websites. The main purpose of my HTPC is to watch movies and the experience of watching movies with black screen every 3 minutes is frustrating. I have had to resort to using PLEX with Chromecast which I detest.

Has anyone had this issue? How did you resolve it? There are vertical sync settings which apparently are the culrpit.
