Signal breaks up and stutters

Forgive me if this is the same thing that others have been describing as pixelation, but I havent heard it described this way so I wasn't sure if it's the same thing. I have been having problems particularly with one of my Moto DVRs on certain channels, Local HD, BBCa, that looks remarkably like what used to happen on DirecTV during a storm when the sat signal was being affected by the weather. Freezing and stuttering, and it is recorded that way on the DVR. It's quite frustrating, as that was one of the reasons I switched from DirecTV. Does this sound like the same thing that people have been using attenuators with their TIVOs to fix? Is my DVR wonky?

yeah thats a common issue. The best fix for it now until the new software rool out is to unplug your DVR for 30 seconds and re plug it in.

Thanks for the quick response; this forum seems to be geared more towards actually helping than just complaining. Do you know if once the cable cards and attenuators and all are set up correctly in the TIVOs, are people still having this problem? Because between this issue and the bad guide, it might finally be enough to drive me over the edge to buying an HD Tivo, if I knew it would take care of it.

I dont believe this would have any effect on tivo. I believe it is due to the software/firmware on the motorola DVRs.
