I've been having a loss of audio intermittently for about a week now on a two of my HD locals. But this morning the audio is just flat gone. I have check the problem channels with a converter box and they are just fine so it's something in the D* hardware / programming. I've tried RBR & pull the power and wait 15 minutes steps with no success. Is anyone else seeing this?

Problem channels:
KUTV - 2
HD (via sat) no audio
SD (via sat ) have audio
HD (via ota) no audio
KTVX - 4
HD (via sat) no audio
SD (via sat ) have audio
HD (via ota) no audio

Hardware:
hr20-700

How are you listening to the audio?

Straight to TV? via HDMI? via red/white RCA?

Through Surround Sound Receiver? via HDMI? via Optical?

Since rebooting the HR20 didn't do anything, I'd look to other equipment problems.

11am and all are fine here.

I live in Logan, Ut and get the Salt Lake Locals. About a week ago (maybe a week and a half), my HD-Locals started pixellating. Just those channels, and no other HD channels. First time I noticed it, I thought maybe it was just storming further south, and that was causing interference. I checked the radar today, and nothing south, nothing really big even in Salt Lake. I reset the reciever, and no change. I have checked the connections on the back of the receiver, and the ones outside at the multiswitch (I'm pretty sure it's a WB68.) I called DirecTV, and they had me do the same things. The next step is a service call. I really can't afford the $50, or the protection plan, so I am hoping that you guys have some more ideas. Thanks for your help.

I have the slimline dish connected to the WB68. The cable then runs in through the window to my HR20-700 (0x02B3).

I had a tuner go out today, and called D*. They said that sometimes static builds up in the tuner and and so by unplugging for 15 seconds the static discharges and that should fix the problem. I unplugged the receiver, and that fixed the problem. He also said that can cause pixellation, so I believe that is what was causing issues with the locals.
