The only thing I can think of is that it flickers when the streaming quality changes

I had mine hooked up to an RCA HDTV that is less than a year old. I don't think it is a TV issue. I haven't noticed it when my phone is hooked up to the tv and I am doing things on it other than Netflix, so I think it must be an Issue with playing netflix on the razr while it is hooked up through HDMI. I have never had any problems with any other devices hooked up to my tv with HDMI doing this and when I watch netflix on the phone itself it is always fine.
I had my droid X rooted and enjoyed having it rooted b/c i could get the UI upgrades a lot earlier than if I had waited till verizon pushed the upgrades and I could run ROMs that made an older phone run smoother. It kept me from getting bored with my droid x as quickly, and I liked having more control of my phone, but I also found that I spent way to much time flashing different ROMs on my phone and doing other things with it. It is kinda nice to not have all of my time spent now reading about and waiting/flashing new ROMs. Although it was nice to be able to back up my phone/apps when rooted and have more control, i don't see installing a ROM on this phone making a huge difference with performance b/c it is so fast and snappy already. Plus ICS will give the phone a completely new feel from Gingy when it comes out and I really don't feel like messing up a phone that I just payed $250 for b/c I can't flash a sbf file if something goes wrong.
I asked a verizon rep about the problem today when I went to the store to pick up an HD dock. He said it was a problem specific to the netflix app with the razr, but netflix is aware of it and he said it should probably be fixed in a week or two.
With the Razr, no need to root, this thing is balls to the walls as is!!
With my old Tbolt, it needed to be rooted and rommed just to get it running right! Thing was beast with a custom rom!! How it should of been from the factory!
But then again, im a root happy guy! i need some spice in my life!!
There could be issues related to the root process in general, but in this case, he's overreacting. and it's already confirmed by a Verizon spokesperson

OK so it also flickers when just watching Netflix on my phone (no HDMI tethering). Called Netflix and the rep suggested uninstalling an re-installing so I'm going to try that.
