There are still audio issues with Dolby Digital audio. The severity of the issue depends a lot on the audio receiver you are using, from what I've seen Onkyo's seem to take the longest to recover from whatever error is in the stream causing the drops.

As for your 2 HD outputs, DirecTV doesn't have that. What they do have is Whole Home DVR, where using the coax that connects the receivers to the dish are used for networking HD DVR's and HD receivers so they can view content between boxes. There is a $3/month charge for Whole Home DVR service.


The audio dropouts occur when hooked up directly to the TV either through HDMI or composite audio cables. How can people keep blaming them on AV receivers when they are there whether you use an AV receiver or not.

Some like to try to make it seem like it's not a DTV issue.

Did I say they didn't, I hear them through my TV also, but it's a very short blip and I really have to listen for it. Maybe it's worst with your TV but with the 7 I have connected via HDMI there's never been a dropout that prevented me from hearing any dialog. Where you can blame the AVR is on how long it take to recover from that error. I have a Sony and Onkyo that take a lot longer to recover then a Denon processing the same error.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

He said the severity depends on the AV...which is true. Onkyo's drop out and recover at longer intervals than some others.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I don't notice any difference in recovery time between my AVR or tv speakers.
