I see frequent audio drop outs, usually with some pixelization, on

Sacramento Local PBS (KVIE, Channel 6)

Very obvious on both an HR21-700 and an HR23-700, consistent, and I don't see it on other Sacramento locals.

Just tuned it, all o.k., but a ten minute look see doesn't prove much.

Are you using an AVR? If so, how is it hooked up?

Every channel that is in DD. No consistency.Some nights every 10 minute others every 1 1/2 hrs.
Hr24 with optical to panasonic btt195. At least the pictures decent but this is really getting old. Might have to make a switch to dish or dare I consider Brighthouse.
I have changed every cable and tried other AVRs all have done the same.

Try this: run your optical cable from the TV back to the AVR.....

I tried component and fiber optic just to make sure it wasn't a hdmi hand shake issue and it still occurred and does today. Maybe the new genie's don't do it but I would "guess" they do...

Just an update.............

S/w directv they sent a tech out. Tech has the same problem at his home. Says problem is similar on allot of his calls. He doesn't know a solution.

Tech claimed he replaced dish all wiring and he still has problem. S/w directv reps they say to keep a log of audio drops and they will call back.

I'm off to office depot to buy a case of paper!!! lol

 

Back to Square one!

If I remember correctly, when I turned off the Audyssey processing on my Denon, the dropouts went away.  I proved this by replaying the same show with the DVR.  I can't remember the setting, but it is the one that bypasses all the processing (which makes the Audyssey feature worthless).  I believe I could still hear a slight 'tick' noise where the dropout was previously.  I need to try the experiment again.

So, in short...............There is no solution known or in progress as has been mentioned over the past 5 years.

Shame on you Directv.

I have an HR24 connected via HDMI to an Onkyo TX-NR515 and a Samsung 55" 6500 series TV using the Audio Return Channel (ARC) HDMI connection.  I have not had any audio dropouts in many many months but I don't typically watch ESPN or HBO.  I typically stay around locals (Washington DC Channels), HGTV, AMC, Comedy Central, History, ABC Family and a few others.  The only thing I do experience [which has gotten better] is an audio dropout when I fast forward and then hit play, but those of quickly fixed with a pause and play.

 

Just thought I put that up there.

Not to the degree you seem to be having.

Way back when I started this thread, there was a problem with the encoders on the uplink. My worst was with my local HD channels.

For the most part, this isn't a problem anymore, which isn't to say I never have an audio dropout, but to say they're few and far between.

I have also had audio drop outs and used to think it was my Denon receiver, but it also happens in my office and bedroom HD-DVR units which are connected HDMI without a receiver.  I wear WIDEX hearing aids and this week I received a TV-DEX (from WIDEX) to test with my hearing aids.  It is connected to the analog output (Red & White) of my HD-DVR and I get the same audio drop outs there as well.  Glad to know it is not my equipment or my ears. : )
