Anyone having major audio dropouts on ESPN? I have an HR24 connected to Denon AVR591 receiver via HDMI.

I know audio dropouts have been an issue for many for awhile, but I am having major issues on ESPN- it almost never happens on any other channel. On ESPN, I am having audio dropouts every 5-10 minutes, and it seems to be getting worse.

I know it has something to do with dolby digital, because if I turn off DD on the DVR, and then rewind and play the audio dropout does not repeat. (And the dropouts disappear if DD is off)

However, when the DD is on, if I have an audio dropout and then rewind and play it again, the dropout is still there. And sometimes when the dropout occurs it even causes a hiccup in the video.

Anyone else having a problem with ESPN like this? Any suggestions on what I can do about it? I know HDMI handshake issues happen, but if that is my issue, why is it only happening with ESPN and almost never on any other channels?

Thanks in advance-

ESPN is the worst for this..I noticed it heavily today during one of the football games. Happens on our local cable here too, so truthfully I think its on ESPN's end.

Ok, during college football and sportscenter tonight (Sat 11/17) the audio dropouts on ESPN have been ridiculous- every other minute- I guess it's just me, but if so I still don't understand why I ONLY get dropouts on ESPN.

Anyone else getting them on Saturday??
