    I have been noticing picture flickering during shows. I have checked all wires and connections and all seem fine. What may be the cause of this and how might I fix it.

    Did you check your sat levels?

    On both tuners? Could it be from your TV and not your Sat signal? What about your resolutions?

    Yes, both tuners. I am using a PC monitor and not an actual TV

    I would guess it has something to do with the resolutions available to a monitor. But that is an area others with much more expertise should be able to help with.

    But 1 thing: have you tried changing the formats and resolutions under the display options to see if any of them work better than another?

    I have not however I have another box and monitor in the same room and that one does not do this. One is a HR-24-200 and the one with the issue is 100

    It might be that they each have different display options set up. It can't hurt to check.

    "Seems like" swapping monitors or receivers should point to which is the problem.
    The HR24 100/200 are the same basic hardware, where the -500 is the one slightly different.

    I am going to call for a service call and see if they can swap the box out. Connected with Component cables and HDMI and same issue no matter what.

    So you swapped monitors and the flickering followed the directv receiver? Leave the cables where they are at, just swap the monitors, if the flickering happens on the other monitor as well, then it is either the receiver, or the cables. If the flickering moves to the other monitor, then its the monitor.

    It's starting to look like the receiver, but try swapping cables to make sure it isn't a bad cable.

    Yup. so it stayed with the monitor? now you try a different cable. That way you have eliminated the variables

    Tried different cables and the issue is still there. Have a tech set to come out tomorrow and take a look.
