    My Genie 2 (HS17/300) creates some horrible digital sounding audio glitches that are very loud and very annoying. This happens whenever the video signal is interrupted (dropout or video glitch due to weather) and at the end of every recording when the video stops and the Delete/Keep menu pops up. It's like the end of the digital audio stream contains garbage which is sent to the amplifier. Happens in Dolby and non-Dolby setting. Any ideas?

    I think that is a universal problem with all receivers. I have had those on a H21, H24 and HR24s.

    I had HR24 and the first Genie and never had this issue. Started when I got the Genie 2.

    Doesn’t happen often but when this happens I usually just do a red button reset.

    My C61k doe not do this.The C41w snap and crackles at every change form pause, ff, etc to play mode. It only seems to do this in Dolby.

    I had an audio drop out problem with the C41-100 client. The audio would drop out when a commercial came on. I called DTV and swapped it for a C61-100. The audio problem went away.
