My Foxtel box has been glitching since the new update(August 2019). It flickers/static every now and again and then has completely blacked out after awhile. When I turn the box off it shows a green screen format before turning off. I have done a rest (press and hold the power button) and it is still happening.

That sort of behaviour is usually associated with a loose/faulty HDMI cable connection.
Try unplugging the HDMI cable (both ends) and reinserting.
Mine is doing the same. No loose cables, only started straight after the upgrade. I believe the iq4 resolution has changed since the update.? No point having Foxtel if I can’t watch it. Waiting on a new box as the rep seems to think this is the problem, I’m thinking it’s not the box. If it’s unsuccessful I’ll cancel it
Disconnecting and reconnecting cables didn’t seem to make a difference. I don’t watch much live tv, mainly recorded programs. But when it is on live tv, I dont recall it happening. Regularly happens when I’m watching recorded programs and then I have to turn the Foxtel off then back on again for it to stop.
Did you notice if it happens on live tv or just recorded programs? Not 100% sure as I don’t watch much live tv, but I can’t recall it happening on live tv.
Have you received your new box? If so, has the problem been resolved? Mine too only started doing this after the new update.
