Last night I timed it a couple times and it would have a quick dropout five times in seven minutes. Once in awhile you can notice a little stutter in the picture at the same time. Receiver taking a dump maybe? It's been like this for a week and it's starting to get annoying. lol TIA

They usually only last for a second, happen fairly infrequently, but do occur on multiple HD channels.

I turned on Speed today & it had serious audio issues.
Thank you! That's the worst one for me. Now that someone mentioned it above, it was right around the time of the update for me too.

Lately I've noticed that Animal Planet doesn't dropout like the other HD channels, instead it just st-t-t-t-t-t-utters for 10 or 15 seconds, then "pops" back to normalcy. Weird.
I'd really love to know what causes some HD channels to have audio dropouts but not others, and why it seems to affect some receivers more than others.
We just got PBS HD locally (B'ham) and it is the most dropout prone channel out of all of them, both audio and video. It's a mess. Strangely, when it debuted, our CW HD affiliate began getting worse. Makes me wonder if some of the other national channels begin acting up when channels are added/subtracted from whatever transponder they're on. Maybe it's a load balancing issue.

And yes, I think this has been much more prevalent since the last national software update.

Lots of dropouts during the Venture Bros. last night. To the point that the return from break had nearly a minute of full silence. Funny though, it was only during the actual show. No dropouts during the commercial break.
Waited all that time for a new season, and it was almost unwatchable. I thought it was an issue with that receiver, so i huffed and puffed my way to the bedroom (where I have it recorded on the other HR unit) and saw that it had identical dropouts. LAME!
I was happy to learn that a.s. will start doing re-runs of the new episodes. So maybe I can see (and hear) what I missed for that whole minute.

Of course not.
