(Note: I got no repsonse to a post on the Dish PVR forum, so I am giving this broader circuclation.)

A few times a week, the Dish receiver brieifly (less than one second) loses the signal and then recovers. Dish network says its not a bird or a plane. I know it's not a storm or a power interruption (using UPS), and anyway, the TV does not blink.

Dish does not know what it is. They suggest electromagnetic interference.

I live about a mile from a naval research station. I wonder if there is interference from their emission. (I would not expect them toi admit it, but my burglar alarm technicican claims that he has seen the effects in houses in the area).

I called the FTC. They now say that they do not "routinely" investigate interference to home electornics.

Anhone have any ideas?

I don't know whow often this really happens, because I asm not watching the tube all the time.

What do you mean blinks? Do you get a message that the signal has been lost? Does it go through the dreaded signal aquisition cycle or does it just pop back on?
I've lost signal more often than I think is reasonable but I'm not sure that's the same thing.
I'm in New Jersey.
