I noticed starting about 2 weeks ago that occasionally some programming on Directv has distorted audio. I have the DVR in the family room and the non dvr hd box downstairs. It seems to happen with loud passages or effects. Sounds like blown speakers pushed too hard. I initially thought there was something wrong with my setup, but my Denon receiver and my Paradigms are all new this year. I switched hdmi cables, tried coax instead of hdmi. Switched inputs. No change. Thought it was an issue with my receiver. How to Train Your Dragon on HBO had several instances. I popped in the bluray disc that I own and it plays fine. I ended up DVRing HTTYD to see if it would reproduce and sure enough it does. I took my audio setup out of the mix and switched to the tv speakers. Still distorts. Finally went to my upstairs and played it straight off the DVR to the tv up there and, sure enough, it distorts too. I think I have effectively ruled out any equipment issues on my end. Two different boxes, two different tvs, 3 different sets of speakers. All the same. Sometimes it's perfectly fine. I noticed Xmen 2 on HBO had lots of distorted audio. Very random. Anyone else noticed any issues with audio lately??
The boxes are HR24 and H24.
