What's Wrong With HDNM?????

While watching movies yesterday (something about a magical horse) and today (JFK), I notice that the picture and sound blank out for at least 10 seconds. And it does it every few minutes. What's going on? :mad:

Guess I'm the only one having this problem..... :eek:

Does this only happen with HD channels / programs?

What model receiver do you have?

If it's an H20, make sure you have the latest software verson 0f06. There are posts here that tell you how to download it.

No, I noticed it too... On "Silkwood."

The problem occurs on both my H20 and my LG.

I tried to contact DTV, but I waited as long as I could on terminal hold. I emailed HDNM, but no response yet.

JFK was a mess last night. Blank-outs occuring every couple o' minutes.

Seen it too. Directv's HD service sucks so far!

are these issues related to certain areas, I have no problems wit the service, it is the installers who did not installed the dish properly aligned it twice now.
i will look closely the lip sync issue, I am using HDMI cable for A/V.

Seems I have a similar problem. Once in a while, my picture blacks out with both the video and audio on both HD and non HD channels? When called DTV just said they had never seen the problem?
