    The ESPN dropouts during football games this past weekend sound like truck problems. The reason I say this is because the picture never disappears, only the audio. Then when the audio returns it sounds like that of a telephone hybrid interface. It is sometimes common practice to have a backup telephone link for audio on remotes of high importance.

    There may be truck problems from time to time, but I'm convinced the audio dropouts are a Directv problem. I get the same thing on several channels and I'm really getting annoyed by it.

    The gym at my apartment complex day was dropping audio/video today and they don't have DirecTV. Plus, my local cable company is having issues with local channels. Is there something in the air?

    I agree.

    Audio Dropouts mostly at night and on HD channels, but happens on all channels.

    Yes....watched on 3 different channels and 3 HDTV's at the time, and only CNN dropped out - Fox and CBS were solid.

    I've noticed audio dropout during recordings of Dexter on SHOeHD, but interestingly enough it does not happen on all my DVRs for the same recording/same channel/same time.

    So I know it's not the broadcast-- it's something else, either unique to the DVR or wiring that the problem occurs on.

    Also, so far, I'm only seeing this on recordings, not live.

    I had audio drops last night on 696-1 (Comcast SportsNet Bay Area HD) during the Warriors game. I also was flipping to the Oregon game on 206-1 ESPNHD and didn't have any audio drops. Was pretty annoying, the drops were only a quick second and about 2-3 minutes apart.

    I just watched my recording of The Office and didn't have dropouts from last night's episode. Prior to last night, the last 4 episodes all had the dropouts. Strange indeed. There's no rhyme or reason to it. Just random.

    I actually watched the Office from this week and there were a ton of dropouts. DTV really needs to man up and fix this.

    This has been happening for me. I got them to replace my DVR, but its still happening.

    I have my DVR hooked up to my Onkyo receiver, so I did a test. I turned off the receiver and instead turned up the volume on my TV to get the sound through the HDMI cable instead (was hooked up to receiver through Optical connection). Guess what, no drop outs.

    I'm thinking this is related to digital/dolby sound only.

    I'd be curious if others out there are experiencing this with no audio receivers hooked up at all, and just piping the sound through their televisions?

    I turned off my DD and it made no difference in my dropouts. I didn't try without the sound system though.

    Try connecting the sound directly to your TV and see if it still happens.

    My DirecTV 2 year contract just ended.

    Is this issue just on my HR20-100's (I have two)?????

    Is it worth asking for newer models and I they wont replace, switch to some other service?


    I have tried the Nation Release version and others, no difference no matter what version of software I am on.

    I read somewhere on some other forum that by switching from using a toslink optical audio cable to a digital coaxial works. Well I just went down to my local radioshack and picked up a digital coaxial cable and my hr23-700 still has the hiccups. So I'm thinking it's the directv receiver.

    Speed channel for me hiccups like crazy

    Speed channel and ESPN are by far the worst for me.

    I experienced the same hiccups with a panny bluray player going through a toslink optical selector, so I tried going directly to my onkyo's 2nd optical input and that fixed the problem. I thought that by doing the same thing with the hr23-700 would fix the problem, but it doesn't....seems to be the hr23-700 and all the other hd dvr's
