Question about Philips DSR704
I have swapped cables and connections between my DSR704 and 2nd DVR and isolated the problem to the reciever. While watching live or recorded shows, sometimes the picture will get blocky and audio will be lost for very short but annoying periods of time. Sometimes it won't do it for days, sometimes often enough to make you scream. Sky is clear.....any ideas? Can I reformat the hard drive on this ?
Check the satellite signal strength on different transponders. On mine, 16 ands 17 are intermittent as are a number in the 20s but only on satellite 2 (even if you switch the cables). It's probably a bad 2nd tuner.
The only fix I've found is to repeat the "guided setup" and tell it you have only one cable coming in. That will take tuner2 out of the loop.

Hi there, my name is Mayra Diaz with DISH Network, I just ran into your post, just wanted to make sure that everything is working ok for you. Usually when this issue happens we would replace the HDMI cable first and if that would not work we would replace the DVR receiver. If you have any other questions or concerns feel free to post back.
