Ok, so I don't understand. Watched BSG late last night, 10pm EST recording. HR21-200. I had the one mentioned above right after Kara says "toothpaste", lasted maybe quarter second. After that I didn't have a single brrrrrrrip or drop out. So if it's totally a transmission thing, how can we both have different experiences? Perhaps it is a transmission issue and our various hardware/software is handling it better or worse. Mine obviously better for some reason. I have an HR21-200 and an HR20-700, both on current national release, I haven't done any CE this cycle. Oh, I asked my wife who watches CSI/CSI:NY a ton on Spike HD if she sees this and she said she hasn't noticed it, maybe once every other episode.
