TV Picture flickering, jumping, snowing DVR and Live


I have a Panasonic Viera Plasma 1080p tv. At least once a week (and oddly nearly everytime it starts with watching a DVR recording of an HBO show) the picture starts to jump, show random horizontal lines, and get partially snowy. It becomes unwatchable, so we end up watching via Apple TV with no issues. Once the flickering starts, it continues to be bad on HBO channels, but also is an issue with other regular channels, both cable and network. By the next morning the issue is gone.

I've changed HDMI cables and have done basic resets, etc. to no avail.

Any suggestions for how to proceed without having to tear apart the entire entertainment system?
