    All 3 on my DVR's (HR44,HR24,HR24) are getting pixilation on the DC local channels. I checked and other channels like HBO, ESPN are fine. What should i check to see where the problem is. I bought a spare swm mulitswitch and power adapter if i need to replace one. Not sure if its that or one of the LNB(A) and if so which one is it. When I run a signal strength I get upper 90's on all expect 99 and 103(s).

    Any help is appreciated.

    Live in the DC area and experiencing the same issue. I guess the bigger question is if DirecTV is doing anything about it. Been going on for 3 or 4 days now at least.

    I wouldn't Have noticed it -because the only show I watch is Judge Judy (on locals) everything else is worthless

    And it seems to have cleared up as watched the football games Sunday and last night and didn't see any issues. We even has snow Sunday evening night and it was normal. Probably shouldn't have said anything. :)

    The DC locals pixilation cleared up over the weekend. It's been on and off for a year. I'm also having chronic issues with 501 - but no other HBO channels - and 525. I program all of my HBO series to 504 for my DVR.
