    North Eastern MD. H20-100. I get about 2-3 seconds of picture and audio drop every night a couple of minutes or so before 10 p.m. It's usually right at a critical closing scene in a show. Annoying. Anyone know why?

    * Do you have other DirecTV Receivers? Do they all have this problem?
    * What channel or channels?
    * How is the H20 connected to your TV?

    We'll need alot more info to even have any clue at possibilities...

    In addition to Lizdog's questions...

    1) Is it the same channel (network) each time, same 2 channels, or more (and which ones)?

    2) What kind of display / TV is your receiver connected to?

    2) If it's a national network (ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS), have you contacted your local station for the corresponding station broadcasting this event?

    If you're seeing this every night on the same box (H20-100), I'm assuming that is your primary receiver. My first thought was if you have a DVR that records the same program every night starting at that time, there may be something weird with your wiring where the DVR starting to record/changing channels causes a hiccup on your other box. But if the H20 is your main box, I doubt you've got a DVR running somewhere else.

    As the others have mentioned, more information will help in diagnosing your problem. It could conceivably be something as goofy as a not-quite-properly grounded dish and someone gets home at the same time every night and pops the garage door opener. :)

    The same time every night. :scratchin

    That's weird. It almost implies that there is some external influence.

    Maybe related to power as if something large goes off or on at that time.

    Sometimes when the local affiliates here do their station ID it causes stuttering

    Try recording the non HD version of whatever you are watching in case you wanna see who killed JR??

    There have been rare reports of sporadic RF emmited from military radar during regular scheduled testing, if by chance you live near an active facility.
