I have a modded 7100, and I have been experiencing random audio difficulties on recorded programs for a few months now. I cannot correlate the starting of the audio problems to either - 1) my move to AZ (re-setting up of the equip.), or 2) the recent software upgrade.
I'm going to do a complete re-image and see if that fixes anything.
I have a 7200, and have noticed the audio dropping problem on occasion over the last several months. Don't remember it occurring before that. I have not been sure if it was the DishPlayer or Surround tuner causing the audio drop. What I have noticed, is that it only seems to occur during movies off the satelite in Dolby Digital audio format. I haven't checked to see if the audio drops out at the same time on any of the other regular sat. recievers in the house.
It started happening to me last week when I switched from the blue card to the new yellow card. Every time we turn it on now, it fails to acquire signal from the satellite, and is not downloading the lists either. Very frustrating.
