I've got TWC coming out to 'upgrade' my digital cable (Pio V1000) to HDTV and will probably be getting the 'improved' SA8300HD/C (got my fingers crossed).
Lately - last several weeks - I've noticed a very annoying problem with the downstairs digital cable - every 5 minutes or so my picture will freeze, pixelate, the audio will cut out for about a second, then everything will return to 'normal'. It happens most notably on the major broadcast channels like CBS, NBC, ABC and ESPN when watching ball games - but I've also noticed it on TNT (Lord of the Rings last week) and also PBS.
I've reset the box several times to see if that might cure the problem but alas, no, it persists.
Has anyone else been experiencing this in the San Diego area?
Could it just be my V1000 STB and the problem will magically go away when I upgrade to the HD STB?
