After noticing short (1 sec) audio dropouts, I dicided to record 2 channels simultaneously. I found the drop outs to happen simultaneously on both recorded channels. I also noticed that the on occasion, the picture would show small square blocks on parts of the screen at the time of the drop out.

After getting a Comcast tech to come out, he found multiple bad COAX connectors (pull-backs, he called them, wereby the white shielding around the center conductor was not flush with the bottom of the connector), and replaced just about all Coax ends from the box in the yard to my DVR, including the grounded junction block in the box outside the house.

Problem Solved!
