    I've seen that behavior on the past. Sometimes rewinding a few seconds and watching from the buffer makes things better.

    The replacement SR-17 was installed less than an hour ago. The pixilation problem I had with the 54 is the same with the 17. Actually it's worse. I just hung up from the automated survey and gave them a 5 on if I would recommend DirecTV to a friend.

    Are you sure it wasn't SR-71 ? :)

    I just had my HS17 installed Thursday with C61K driving a 65" LG OLED and another C61K driving a 75" Sony 940D. The GUI is noticeablely guicker. I saw atmos sound is available now. I am sure it is the paceblo effect but the picture seems better than the H54 I had. The Tech said D* is working in the dropouts issues.

    Obviously your pixilation problem is not the HS17 or the HR54. My guess would be dish, LNB, coax, power inserter, something in your overall home installation. If it were in the general DirecTV uplink or downlink, it would be a widespread problem with huge numbers of complaints, which do not appear to be the case.

    It is a D* issue. My tech confirmed it. D* is working on it. He brought it up without me mentioning I had seen it.

    I am sorry but your tech may have just been priming you. Carl is correct on this matter

    No, there are a large number of complaints on this. According to this thread Increasing intermittent pixelzation and intermittent with audio drops DirecTV has found the problem but I will believe it when I see it.

    I'm pointing a few times - it could be race condition in HW/new FW inflicted by new data from sat stream !

    Many people have this pixelation issue. Many people have had their entire systems rewired and still have the pixelation issue. You know this, you have commented on all the threads. I experienced this for months. So have many others.

    However, I think they have addressed it because it has been much better over the past week. Today is the test as the Sunday Ticket channels have been among the worst. I would have seen it by now on the pregame and not a blip. I watched a basketball game on YES yesterday to see if it would blip and it only did to the level it has for years. Locals have been clean. This is my experience hopefully others see it clear up as well. I know some locals are still pixelating. How do I know. Do what you tell others to do and look for other threads.

    I was watching a premium channel this afternoon. Can't remember which one but the pixelation was so bad I had to stop watching it.

    Nah, I'm going down to the Air Force Museum in Tuscon this week. I had the SR-71 on my mind.

    DirecTV let me out of the second year of my contract with no penalty after the tech came out and changed every wire throughout my system. His supervisor later emailed me and said that the pixelation problem is wide spread and even he is experiencing it. One week after I cancelled my service AAT called and said that the HS17 might solve the problem They offered me a great deal with no contract to sign. The HS17 was installed yesterday and within an hour the pixelation was actually worse. I'll live with it for a year and see what happens.
