HD Signal on Locals - HR20

04-27-2008, 04:08 PM
I have been having a problem with my HD signal only on my local / network channels on my HR20 receiver. The HD signal will come in and out and then ultimately the signal will go out completely and the "Searching for Satellite" message appears on the screen. Watching HD programming, especially live sports programming, is very frustrating as the signal will often scramble or go off at various times during the event.

The signal strength appears to be fine and I have another HD receiver in another room and never have this problem. It is isolated to my one receiver. The same channels in SD never have this problem.

The only advice I get from DirecTV is to send out a technician at a cost. I switched to a different BBC converter to no avail. I'm thinking it's a cabling issue or multiswitch. Any help or thoughts would be appreciated.
