Woke up this morning to HD issues. The audio is horrible video slightly jumpy as well. It is affecting both of my receivers. It is only on my local CBS, ABC, NBC, and FOX. A RBR on both receivers did nothing. I am actually glad I am heading in to work because it's so bad; I just hope it's fixed by the time I get home. The receivers are a HR21-100 02CA and a HR22-100 O2B0. UGGHHH!!!

I noticed it also this morning on KCNC. OTA 4-1 on my AM21 did not have the problem. It must be on DirecTV's end.

Great I hope it is fixed when I get home or I'll be on the phone for the 3rd time this year with Directv.:(
BTW my one Directivo SD was fine as well.

The local NBC station KUSA is now broadcasting Universal Sports on channel 9-3. I have rerun my antenna set up for local channels on my HR's and it still not showing up in the guide. Perhaps DirecTv could add this channel.

Issues started about 1.5 wks ago with CBS and Fox again. This past weekends game for the Broncos was almost unwatchable due to the brrips. NBC and ABC (surprisingly) are not having issues that I have seen at this time.

Same issue with the Bronco game. It has improved the last couple of nights for me.

The BRRRIIIPPs on KDVR31 (FOX) are just horrible. I tried to contact the local station and they were just baffled by what I was trying to explain. We'll see how the Yankees v Angels goes tonight. I sure with they could get this fixed.

Absolutely horrible on KDVR FOX 31 in Denver tonight during Glee. The first segment was OK, but after that the BRRRIIIPPPs were so frequent it was near impossible to understand what was being said. They were occurring every 5-10 seconds, no hyperbole.

Calls to the station have been met with absolute bewilderment. This sucks...

Major issues tonight with HD LILs on MPG4. Pixellation and sound drops are rendering the LILs unwatchable (all of them.) Only the locals are breaking up, all other MPEG4 channels are just fine. I checked the dish and cleaned the ice and snow off to no avail.

Channels affected: KCNC, KUSA, KMGH

I noticed it on 4 & 31 a while ago. Seems to be fine now. I wonder if DirecTV needs some dish heaters at the Denver locals uplink with all the snow we are getting tonight.

Sweet! Moments after posting, the issue was resolved. I can only imagine that it was some type of uplink issue caused by the heavy, wet snow we're experiencing tonight.

I think my wife might get over missing the last ten minutes of Cougar Town. :)

BRRRIIIPPPs got so bad on KDVR FOX 31 in Denver that they were happening every 5-10 seconds during the latter part of the World Series tonight. Typically a short BRRRIIIPPP followed by a complete audio dropout as my Onkyo loses DD lock. Occasionally it was bad enough that there would be a complete video dropout as well. Sheesh.

OTA straight to my HDTV was not affected.

Still very bad on Fox. So You Think You Can Dance is currently experiencing lots of audio brriipps and drop outs.

I haven't noticed many problems as of late. Wonder if they got it squared away or if it is waiting for the new shows to come back on???? lol

Thanks for this thread.

We have had directv for almost a month, and since we have had it, we have had the following issue (consistently, without fail, 24/7) on NBC / KUSA / 9:

Depending on the situation, every several minutes to every several seconds a green pixelated horizontal bar will appear on the screen and stay there for about half a second. The bar is maybe 5 pixels tall and always covers 1/2 to 2/3 of the screen horizontally, right justified. It's vertical position varies.

Needless to say, it's a pretty frustrating issue and the problem has been consistent. It occurs on multiple receivers (HR24-100 and -200) and is unique to DTV.

Strange, I am in the Denver DMA and have no issues with KUSA. I have a HR 24-500. Bad connector, switch or some kind of local interference?

I would think they would provide a service call under the 90day warranty since your installation is new.

Here's the best example I could find without digging through the DVR too much:

You aren't seeing anything like that? It kind of looks like the matrix is invading the screen. :D
