I am pretty sure this has been addressed but wanted to cut to the chase. I am a DirecTV sub and my parents have dish. They have had their ViP722 since the new year and just recently been experiencing a ton of audio dropouts primarily on local affiliate channels. They are pulling these from the satellite and not OTA. I helped set their system up and have eveything such as the Blu-Ray player and the ViP722 connected to the Onkyo A/V receiver via HDMI. I am planning on going on over tonight to take a look at it. What solutions if any are there? Do they need a new DVR, do I need to switch the connection to the receiver to component, etc. Thanks P.S. I have nothing against Dish and think it is good for both to push each other so we can all enjoy the best programming and pricing possible.
