I recently noticed that my HBO recordings from my Hughes r5000 sat box had numerous errors with blocky pixleation and audio dropouts. It occurs with HD and SD shows.
This has been going on for more than a week.
All my other HD channels work fine (CBS, NBC, ABC, HDNet, ESPNHD, DiscoveryHD, UniversalHD). I live in New Jersey if that matters.
I have another unmodified Directv sat box and I was able to view the Directv HBO channel perfectly.
I unplugged my Hughes and let it reload its channel data. I am getting the same problems with HBO.
Perhaps the Directv encryption of the HBO channel has changed somehow?
Has anyone else noticed this problem?
