Are other SAT-HD100 owners still experiencing these problems? Well I am and I'm real fed up with it. I have sent my box to Sony and they claim there is nothing wrong. It has the latest software but I still get random video/audio dropouts for 1-2 seconds while watching any DirecTV. I am spending far more time testing this than is appropriate for a consumer electronics device. In any case I have tried the reciever with both a round and elliptical dish with bot HD and non-HD DirecTV signals and on all the various outputs (VGA, component, S-Video) and still get the dropouts. SAT-HD100 owners please weigh in here and let me know your experience good or bad. Also let me know when you purchased your unit. I'm curious if newer units are working better?
