It seems that you have a defective receiver. Take the friggin' unit back to the dealer and get a different model or a new receiver, and quit bitchin' about it. It is under warranty for a year. Not every piece of equipment coming off an assembly line is perfect. Be an adult and take care of the problem, and quit pissing and moaning about it.

It is an equipment problem. I have three Directv receivers and none of them "loose" time. It is not a Directv problem, but a manufacturing problem.
