Question about Hughes HDVR2 with 105 Hrs DirecTV DTV Receiver
One of the two tuners on the DVR is suffering from video and audio drop out that is very similar to sat signal interference resulting from bad weather. The other tuner is unaffected. This problem manifests itself on both live and recorded video from that tuner. Swapping the incoming video lines has no effect on which tuner is affected.
I had the vary same problem, One solution is to remove the s-cable and use the analog video out, I have read lots of forums about this, it works for most people, No one seems to know why the s-cable causes pixelation on sat 2 input, and can't find anybody that can fix it completly, check forums at weak knees.com and tivo comunity. Good luck. ddftoc.

Oops forgot that I already posted the fix. However, the VCR recently failed all together and has been replaced. Also, I have since moved from DirectTV to Dish due to a separate and unrelated problem with the dish.

My problem was the result of a grounding problem on another, connected piece of equipment. When that item was disconnected the problem was resolved. Thanks for the responses.

Found the problem...it looks like a grounding issue between several of the components in the setup. I disconnected the AV connections to the VHS deck from the DVR and the problem went away.

This denotes a problem with the RF tuner itself, which if it is a module it can be replaced, however if it is an actual part of the main circuitry you will have to have the whole unit replaced. Tuners are not user fixable since it contains many components that are very sensitive. I would suggest either having the unit replaced or taking it to a TV repair shop which is setup for such repairs.
