It has been such an on going problem for the past year, they actually came out and replaced all of our receivers with the new genie system and took down the old dish and put up a new one. There was an improvement, but it's still a noticeable problem on many channels. The one thing that they didn't change were the cables, they just used what was installed about 6 years ago and I'm not sure if that would be a contributing factor to this problem. The installers said that it was normal to see that on many of the HD channels and was from their compressed signal, which is why I thought the noise filters would be a good thing to have on. I do feel like I don't see this issue at friends houses though, who have the same service, so maybe I will just have them come out again. Thanks for the response!
