    I apologize if this is in another thread, when I search I did not find anything matching my issues.

    I am getting random audio drop outs and random video freezes/glitches. It happens on all of my TV's and happens on my iPad when I try to watch TV there (frequently on the iPad it will go with out audio for a good amount of time). It's been rock solid for me up until a few weeks ago when something changed (nothing in my setup)

    Here is a topo of my config.

    Thanks in advance for your time -

    First - I would Check all your SAT tuners for Strength -2nd -I would look at all your exposed RG6 outside connections (look) for damaged Connections.

    With 4 Down leads all it takes is one bad outside Connection.

    You Could also replace your LNB with a RB and dump your 4 wires down (to one) New RG6 and remove your SWM8 feed your whole system off the 4 way moving the CCK to the IRD port of the PI ann moving the PI -to port (1) of the splitter or DO away twith the PI and let the HR54 Power the NEW LNB.

    Just FYI

    Did you get a software update around the time you started having these problems?

    bingo! Even if there wasn't an update recently there are tons of known issues floating around with the old software and audio dropouts and freeze frame/pixelation is one of them.

    These software updates really screw some receivers up. Key word in that sentence is 'some'. All this does is cause folks to change their setups when those changes are unnecessary. Makes me wonder if we'll ever see updates that either screw up every receiver or none of them.
