Audio Dropouts and Unavailable Channels
For months now I've been dealing with random audio dropouts. They can happen on any channel. It appears to happen mostly with popular shows. The show we watch that it happens most on is NBC's Tonight Show. And if I DVR a show with the dropouts, the dropouts appear on the recording.
I've had technicians out to the house three times to fix this problem. First time he replaced the set top box, second time he changed some connectors outside and third time, more connectors outside were changed. All three times, they left saying all signal levels look good. Later that night, the trouble reappeared.
More recently (this past weekend), I've gotten error messages saying that a channel was unavailable. On Saturday it was with ESPN and on Sunday it was CBS. Both times, popular football games were being played. And right after the games, the stations returned.
Not sure if the two problems are related but they both seem like capacity/bandwidth problems.
Any ideas what to do next? Thanks.
