If you've already verified that your HDMI cables are OK, you might try plugging the DVR into different HDMI inputs on your receiver. Make sure the cable is well seated.
HDMI dropouts, both audio and video, are often caused by loose connections or marginal signal levels. Because the receiver's internal wiring is slightly different getting to the HDMI circuit, the receiver's different HDMI inputs have slightly different sensitivities.
Another workaround is to connect the DVR's HDMI cable directly to the display for video, while using a digital audio cable (optical or coax) to get the DVR's audio to the receiver.
