I read a post over at AVS that said this audio problem was finally fixed? Can anyone confirm that? My account is in suspension until April(baseball season is when I reactivate it each year) so I can't check it myself.

Thanks

Well, I haven't heard anything in quite some time. Of course, I bought a new A/V in late December because my 2-year-old one kind of exploded. :D

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

I don't know if I just learned to tune them out or not but I don't recall hearing any lately and that's with an Onkyo which was one of the worst for being sensitive to the problem.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

No, it is not fixed. At least not for me.

My Sony receiver does not handle the drop-outs very well so it's very frustrating.

Local
35 CW
Show recorded 02/21/2011 so bad it was almost unwatchable.

Thanks for the responses. It's appears it has not been fixed as I don't see any other threads talking about it either. If it was, surely someone would have been excited enough about this ongoing problem to post about it, if even only in this thread here.

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.


Just noticed this posting - but not had a issue with Audio drop outs - perhaps the lack of postings here indicates the problem is being solved. I have HR22 with Marantz AV8003 pre.

Basement: H21-100 to 60" Sony SXRD

Family Room: HR34 Genie HDMI to 70" Slharp Elite (Feb 22nd, 2013)

Main Bedroom:  HR22-100  to 50" Panasonic Plasma

Until this problem is solved for me, I will continue to post my findings on this thread which is titled "On which channels do you have audio dropouts?"

As you should. :)
I haven't posted lately because mine seem to be few & far between, but Comedy Central can be horrible.

I haven't posted much on this topic lately for the same reason. The channels I watch (very regularly) seem to have been cleaned up, and rather dramatically, at that:

USA Network
HD-LIL (all major networks)
TNT
ESPN (several varieties)

Recording Movies from:

MGM
Sony
HDNET

have shown no dropouts for some time.

So, as I said, I used to have a LOT of audio dropouts on the channels above. Now they are practically non-existent.

I do still get full pixellation accompanied by loss of audio on HD-LIL, but that is a totally different problem. This happens perhaps twice or so, per hour. I never see this on the other sat channels.

All in all, I've seen a lot of progress on the channels I list. Others that I don't watch (like the Comedy channel), may be terrible, but since I haven't been watching them, I can't report.

I think I'll set a series record for The Daily Show, and that will let me evaluate the Comedy channel.

I should mention that I watch almost nothing in real time. All my comments are w/r to recordings.

By "receivers", you mean AVR?
My Sony seems to fit under "little". They're so short as to "almost be" not there.

At this point, I’ve accepted recurrent dropouts as a given with several DirecTV channels but last night encountered many – often with a limited duration between occurrences, in contrast to the “normal” two or three events per half hour – while watching channel 360.
