Ok, well I finally took the plunge and got the HR10-250. I set it all up, menus are a little slow but from reading this forum that is to be expected for the frist few days. What I am having happen though is very annoying. Basically if I am tuned to an OTA Digital channel, for example 11-1 here in Atlanta, NBC's digital channel, then go to the DirecTV menu by pressing the DirectTV button, and then exit out back to watch TV, 9 times out of 10 there is a loud snap or some type of static and I lose audio, the only fix is to change sources on the receiver which resets the digital input. I upgraded from a non HD Samsung T160 and never had these problems. The receiver is a Pioneer Elite 49TXi.

This happens on any digital channel that is brodcasting in DD.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

The Pioneer is the problem. i think other people have reported this problem with some Pioneer models and another brand. I haven't had any problems with my Denon or my old Sony receiver.

Shoot, well hopefully there is a software update for the Tivo box that can fix it as I doubt there is one for the Pioneer. Seems that if multiple receiver types are having the problem then the Tivo needs to fix itself! Thanks for the help
