    hey all -

    has anyone experienced audio dropouts while watching directv? when it happens for me, it's pretty consistent ... like every few seconds. the audio just drops out for a second or so.

    i *think* it only happens on stuff being broadcast in dolby digital, but i'm not positive. it does seem to only happen on the premium channels.

    i'm connecting the dish receiver via optical to my audio receiver.

    any ideas?

    Ted: I have Direct TV at two different houses 150 miles apart--four receivers at one and three at the other (two of them hooked up to 5.1). I've had picture lock up when there was thunder in the area, but never audio problems. Sorry.

    When I first had DirecTV installed, I had this same problem. Turns out it was the Sony satellite receiver that DirectTV had installed. I later purchased a new receiver, and I've never had the problem since.
