    I am watching CNN HD 202 and I am having horrible audio dropouts right now. It is happening almost once a minute. I have tried on my HR20-700 and my H20-100. I have the same problem on both. It is getting pretty annoying. Is anyone else having this problem? All my Transponders on 103 B are in the low to mid 80's.

    Yes same here and video glitches also. Just rebooted the H20 to see what happens.

    Transponders 90+ here on all.

    Me, too, and only this station. It is a video gitter and not as much an audio drop-out but a studder. You see it on the scroll on the bottom of the screen. Play>pause doesn't fix it.

    Ok, after a reset it seems to be getting worse and migrating to most MPEG4 channels.

    Seems to be national according to our locals.

    On a lighter note, Wolff now talks like Bill Shatner or Ryan Secrest Out. I guess glitches can be amusing for a little while.

    I'm seeing this on a HR20-700 and H21-200 and on another MPEG4 channel, Spike HD being the other.

    I started noticing audio stutter or quick dropout couple days ago on channel 76 and others. It's happening on HR20 and HR21.

    Sort of along the same lines, but I have a PQ comment about CNN HD. I was flipping around and saw Anderson 360 the other night and it had all sorts of political numbers from a state primary or caucus, and the PQ of the graphics was good, but the PQ of the shrunk 16:9 image of the actual program was quite blurry. Is CNN upconverting their 'HD' primetime programming from SD to 16:9? Did anyone else notice this. I don't normally watch CNN, but figured I'd report it.

    I get it on Discovery channel 76. Every 30 seconds or so an audio stutter. Its happening on HR20's HR21 and H20.

    Ha, I wish I'd seen this earlier. I just had a tech come out to realign my dish as I thought it was a problem with the new installation I just had done two weeks ago. Turned out everything was already aligned pretty well, he tried replacing the LNBs and various connectors too but nothing really brought up my signal levels which were mostly in the 90s and high 80s already. Now that he's gone it looks like maybe it was a problem at DirecTV's end the whole time?
