    I just had the Genie installed at my home to go along with 3 other HDDVR's and 3 non-DVR HD receivers. I have noticed frequent pixelation of the picture when watching programming recorded on one of the other DVR's and watched via the Genie. It appears that shows recorded by the Genie and watched on the Genie are fine as best as I can tell. Anybody experience this or have thoughts on the reason? Thanks. Have not had problems with pixelation via any other DVR pre or post Genie.

    If it was installed today, give it 12+ hours or so, it's busy downloading the schedule, indexing and other housekeeping after a fresh boot (and probably new download).

    It was installed on July 4th and I have noticed the problem from the outset. Sometimes worse than other times.

    I'd try swapping the location of the 44 and see if the pix problem moves or stays at the location. You might find a bad connector or cable.

    I'm assuming all dvrs are connected via the DECA cloud (coax).

    I have an HR34... been having pixelation problems for the last week or so... Last week I posted to the issues board. Thought it was maybe my tv going bad then it was fine over the weekend all of a sudden. Then yesterday it was looking pixelated again...
