One of the suggestions by a DirecTV tech was to configure my box as "Satellite Only", then back to "Satellte and Antenna". Takes about 15 minutes. I did this yesterday before recording Boston Legal. It actually seemed to work. I had no dropouts for the entire 60 minutes. Previous weeks had 3-5 drops per episode. I've had dropouts on ABC and Fox. I'm looking forward to seeing if Justice has any dropouts next week.
