Had my HR21 replaced this week.. Have seen weird dropout on espn and HBO.
Picture and sound go blank and the channel banner comes up.. after about 5 seconds, picture and sound come back.. Anyone else seeing this ??
Never experienced before.. Think a bad receiver ??

Reads like a bad connection to the coax.

If you have another receiver, swap it with the HR21 and see if the problem follows the receiver or stays at the same location.
