Yes. After it starts I've never been able to resolve it. But it goes away and only recurs intermittently.

I noticed this for the first time on Saturday.  Never had an issue before.  Using the original Hopper, HDMI audio connection direct to receiver.

Yup, had the same problem Friday night while entertaining by the fireplace. Very annoying. Finally gave up and switched to FM radio (by request).

If any of the channels were Sirius/XM, then it might have been a problem at their end.  Last week I had lots of dropouts on the car receiver (Sirius / SYNC).  The problem cleared up around Saturday.  I did not compare the channels to the Dish versions (although I had in the past, the bit-rate in the car receiver must be lower than Dish).
