It isn't very frequent, maybe one glitch per 10-15 minutes, and they only last about 1 second. The video just freezes, then after about a second it just starts playing again (skipping about a second). The signal indicator on my TV goes to 0 then bounces right back up to the mid 90s as soon as it comes back.
The problem has been occurring for me for about 3 months now, but I really thought it was my antenna so I never looked in to it. But after I moved the antenna to the other side of the roof and bought a HD1080 instead of the UHF only I was using before and noticed the issue persisted I wasn't exactly sure.
I have almost the exact same problem, but even worse, at my house in Shueyville. It happens at varying frequencies, sometimes as often as every two minutes or so. Signal breaks up for 1-4 seconds before coming back. Happens mostly on channel 9, (9-1,9-2, etc.) but sometimes shows up on 28 as well. When I watch the signal meter on my DirecTV receiver it just drops from 85-100% down to zero, and then back up again.
Any I've tried different antennas and locations and it seens to be the same no matter what. Any suggestions as to what can be done about it?
