I've owned the 721 for 2 months. No problems. Getting major pixelation and freeze up on CBS, ABC, and Fox both coasts. During prime time only of Fastlane, Big Brother 3, Push Nevada, Firefly, John Doe and Miss America. All other channels are fine. I have noticed fuzzy picture quality on the networks and basic cable channels. Dish screwing around?

Follow up to my last post...
NBC now is pixelating. I was watching a movie I recorded early this morning. Played perfectly. Watched about 10 minutes of other channels and started to watch SNL for 5 minutes and freeze up city! This is weird. Networks only between 8PM-1AM. Weather is fair. ???????????

Hey guys....
I have been getting major pixelation on the Nyc locals...especially Cbs and Fox. Freeze frames...pixels. Signal strength is around 95...(721 model). All other channels coming in ok. Noticed this problem for about 1 week.

Yeah, I'm getting major pixelation on my 721. The whole screen turns into big blocks quite frequently. I think this mostly is occuring on our distant network feeds, but that might just be my imagination. It seems to happen when there is a sudden movement on screen.

I just got my 721 hooked up last week, though, so I don't know if it was always this way or not. My other receivers have not had a problem.

Those of you getting pixelation or audio drop outs... what times does it happen to you? I've noticed it happens on intervals of 5 minutes.. :00, :05, :10, :15... etc.. It happens about 7 seconds after the minute.. and I'm using an atomic clock, so that is the exact time.. anyone else with atomic clocks near their TV that can keep a mental note of when they see problems like this?
