    I have a mt2 ota module on my vip722 and continue getting random drop outs.
    It's not the signal because I can hook the very same cable to my hd tv and get no drop outs.
    Sometimes when I turn of a light the channel drops out,and sometimes it just drops for no apparent reason.
    So,question is...Should I replace the module or just stick with the drop outs.
    It's hard watching the recorded shows with these drop outs.( They pretty consistant)Live shows I can watch without the receiver.
    Are there known problems with the MT2?

    Is the receiver a 722K? My memory says the 722 had a built in OTA tuner and the MT2 slid into the back of the 722K.
    Your problem sounds electrical with the light bulb affecting performance. Simple cure pull plug on receiver then remove and slide MT2 in and out a few times to clean contacts. If that works you could leave it alone or try cleaning contacts better.
