    I have the DirecTV Tivo High Definition unit.

    Very expensive -- supposed to be one of the best.

    I noticed that the few times I watch my shows
    on it, I get occasional stuttering in the audio.

    Happens for a few seconds, then stops. A bit later
    it may stutter a little more.

    Now....this may be impossible to answer because I
    don't watch LIVE TV to really compare....

    Is the stuttering audio more inclined to be a result
    of the signal coming in or perhaps a defect on the
    hard drive?

    Thought perhaps someone might have an idea.

    I sometimes get the same thing on my Scientific Atlanta DVR from Adelphia cable, and it does happen on live broadcasts. (As does picture break-up and other problems akin to rain fade on satellite. The local PBS affiliate's HD signal seems to be the worst offender.) I suspect this is more a problem with the source signal than with your DVR.

    Regards,

    Joe
