    am having problems with my local channels only with the ones coming from my AM-21

    1. on all local channels with .1 numbers after about a half an hour the audio starts cutting out until it goes out completely. changing the channel back and forth fixes it but the problem comes right back. Am having no problems with the regular locals with no .1 behind it.
    2. when I scroll through all the local channels, every time I get to a channel with .1 after it the banner screen comes up for about a half a second and disappears. does not do this on the channels without .1 after it.

    I have tried all types of resets on HR-34 and AM-21 to no avail.

    I have had this problem also since I got my hr34 well over a year ago. When watching live am-21 and the audio starts to stutter or drops out I have found that pressing the skip forward button brings it back. Also the problem is less common when playing a recorded program so I often start recording a program and watch it with just a slight delay from live.

    That makes three of us. I have three AM21s installed on three different DVRs and I see this issue only on the HR34/AM21 combo.

    I have experienced it too on my HR34. Sometimes the audio gets garbled before it quits.
    Happens once every few days for me.

    Sounds like it is an HR34 problem then, not an AM21 problem.

    I forgot to mention that this problem started when I got my HR-34. Anybody know why this is happening?
