I recorded Quantum of Solace on a recent freebie weekend on Showtime HD. The sound format was DD5.1 and my DVR is an HR24-100 with 0x452. The AV receiver is a Pioneer SC-27 and the connection is by HDMI. The audio glitches occurred about every ten minutes for the whole duration and that was enough to spoil the movie. I do not get audio drop outs from Blu-ray or any other sources. I am not aware of other DirecTV channels with audio drop out problems. I have no times or dates, because I only found this thread today and I have already deleted the recording off my DVR.

i had no trouble with solace , maybe it likes hr20s. actually havent had stutters in a while on the machine.

edit: just adding in that i've watched a variety of locals and nationals since i got this replacement HR20 a few weeks ago....i cannot remember any recent stutters at all. so maybe i got an immune box :)

for me it's mostly the HD-LIL channels. I get them on ABC a lot, and to a lesser extent on CBS, Fox and NBC. They're far less infuriating than they used to be with the brrrriiip sound gone, but it's still really annoying.

70% of what we DVR is on those channels, I'd estimate. The other 30% is mixed HBO/Showtime and cable channels (Lifetime, HGTV, etc).

I've just finished watching 2 hours of NCIS on USAHD 242. During that time I had 9 audio dropouts.

Nothing has changed for me!!!

Anyone Else?

Thanks

I've noticed some dropouts with my HR24-100 watching Californication on ShowtimeHD, each of the last two weeks.

This issue was much better for me over the past few months but The Office (LIL) had many dropouts for me last night (multiple per minute at times) and Califonication has many dropouts for me as well.

I see far more on HD-LIL than anywhere else (at least lately). There was a time it was on most sat channels, but a lot of that has been cleaned up.

I'm happy for you, but I have not seen any improvement at all on any channels, sat. or HD-LIL.

I don't frequently use the digital out to the surround processor, but did Sunday for the Super Bowl. Very frequent audio dropouts (Dolby Digital lights went out on the surround processor) on channel 206 (HD). Fortunately, this didn't happen later in the day with the local Fox channel (although I thought their 'surround' mix was pretty bad).

I checked yesterday, and there were no dropouts on ESPN. The only difference... all day Sunday the HR24-500 was also recording channel 560 through the other tuner.

I have the same thing on CBS. Sounds like a radio station when you get out of range. It lasts for a few seconds and then back to normal. My HR24-500 is connected to my Pioneer AVR Via HDMI. However I also hear it from my H21-100 using MRV of CBS recorded content from the HR24.

Are we just giving up on this problem? Has Directv won?
Come on people, you can't tell me that it's just magically stopped for everyone. I still have the same audio dropouts that I've had since the fall of 2009!!!
Judging by the 39,498 "views" about this problem, many other people must be experiencing the same problem, but they just don't want to take the time to post a complaint, thinking that surely enough people have complained so it will be fixed eventually.
15 months is a heck of a long time to fix a problem.
Come spring and warmer weather, if it's not fixed, I going to switch to Dish network.
I've had it with this annoying problem.

I think most have given up (including myself). I swapped my Onkyo receiver for a Pioneer and it is barely noticeable, but it is still there. I don't think they will ever actually fix it.

This is the main audio related problem I'm having. At least once a week I watch a recorded (HR22-100) CBS show with distorted audio like this and it lasts for at least several minutes. Sometimes it disappears and comes back during the same recording. Yamaha RX-V663 AVR
