Or so it seems, but is that possible?
FWIW, I live in Northern California, a couple hours north of San Francisco. HR44 in the living room, HR24 in the bedroom. Last night, my wife had channel 7(ABC) on, and I saw the picture break up/pixelate pretty good a couple times, which once in a while doesn't bother me, but this happened a few times, so I went and turned the other tv on, that is fed by the HR24, put it on the same channel, and whenever it broke up, it was identical on both, pretty much ruling out the receiver. Figured it was most likely something with just that channel, and let it go at that.
A little while later, while watching channel 11(NBC), had the same behavior. Turned the other tv on again, same channel, and got the same results. Again, rules out one receiver, but now it's more than one channel, so the common denominator would have to be the LNB, splitter, maybe the power inserter??? That's what the process of elimination tells me anyway. I figured I'd see if it goes away, and if not, try one component at a time, and see if I can resolve it. I have a spare LNB and power inserter, and I'd probably change the cable from the LNB to the splitter, as it's easy, and it's the only cable that is out in the weather and whatnot.
Anyway....had channel 2 on a little later, and it was doing the same thing, so just for fun, since it seemed it couldn't go more than maybe 15 minutes without an issue, I tried watching Discovery HD. I watched a show on there for about 45 minutes, with no picture issues at all. I watched Ink Master earlier tonight, on Spike, again with no issues. I did watch a show on NBC tonight that was an hour long, with no issues, but a little while ago, I had it on channel 2 again, and saw the same behavior. Obviously there has to be a common denominator, as the two receivers exhibiting the same behavior rules out either tuner, but I'm wondering if there is any way it can be an issue with just the locals, as they come off the same satellite. But then, I'm sure other people would be bringing this up as well. I'm just throwing that out there, but I'd appreciate any input on this.
Thanks in advance!
