Twice I have lost audio on recordings. In one case, lost audio for the whole program. On another rcording only lost the first 10 minutes . I'm using the HDMI to my Sony TV and optical to my to my Sony A/V unit. Any suggestions? As long as I have your attention >)), I seem to get a lot of differences in the audio levels between channels AND on the same channel. For example, watching the Masters and then 60 minutes. Had to crank up the volume on my A/V unit a lot in order to hear 60 minutes. I checked out the volume through the HDMI TV connection and had the same situation. Also, what should the signal strength be the 119 degree satelite? I'm getting 90+ on the others but the best transponder on 119 only gets about 60? I spent a lot of time lurking with this group before committing to the HR-20 and you guys were instrumental in making my decision to go for it. Thanks for all the awesome advice.
