Overall I am very happy with my 2nd attempt at Directv's HD dvr...I no longer have a audio stutter or pic freeze/playback freeze issue. Wausau-Rhinelander HD locals have been up a few weeks now and I have audio dropouts on CH 7 CBS. I had issue with Survivor last Thursday and 60 Minutes Sunday. Survivor was so bad I deleted it and I was ticked, 60 Minutes was audio synch issues but I watched it, picture was also terrible. From what I have read here is many have problems with CBS around the nation. What is being done about the problem at hand with this specifically? Im not too thrilled to see any price increase AGAIN when service is not perfect. Directv is capable of quality service because it was years ago! I hate issues and suprises that effect what I want to watch when I want to watch it. Of course we all do.
