What model box?
Specific channel or all channels?
Live satellite, recorded, On Demand?
Any error messages?
Are other boxes having the problem?
Any other issues?
Besides weather related station/ signal blips this happens to me when I am watching shows I have previously recorded.
I think the glitch is activated when the show was recorded. Because I’ve noticed that if I have used the pause button or longer than a commercial break rewinds or fast forwards (or multiples of them like when trying to catch something I keep missing) while recording one show while watching another the show being recorded will have a glitch for each instance.
So I try to rarely use pause and not do rewinds/ fast forwarding for longer than a commercial break amount of time. I still get occasional glitches but they are far shorter and less often than before.
I have no idea if my theory is correct but it works well enough to keep me from getting frustrated. Perhaps it can do the same for you.
