â€¦when it rainsâ€¦
As of two days ago, Friday, April 19th, everything was copacetic. Dark Angel was as smooth as I've ever seen it, not a signal drop in sight.
Tonight, April 21st, I tuned in about half-way through King of the Hill, was treated to about 2 seconds of video/audio, then the video completely froze, while the audio continued on, stuttering with about the same frequency as it had in the past when both audio and video broke up simultaneously.
This is, by far, the worst I've yet seen it. These freezes can last anywhere from 5 seconds to over a minute - longer than that for which I have the patience to wait.
Once again, this is a Dish 6000, software version 754PCNAD-N, running off a RS double bow-tie, and tonight's signal strength is exceptionally good, averaging about 85%, never dipping below 82%. Meanwhile, I have a 67-68% signal strength off of KATU, with no problems whatsoever (too bad it's not in HD).
