Static on 1 channel

Static on 1 channel

For the past year or so there has been static on every episode we record on NBC but only on our bedroom DVR. I've done the reset online and it never helps. What can be done to fix this bc it really ruins every show?

What model DVR?

What do you mean by 'static'?

The model dvr is HR21-200 and I will attach a video of what I mean by static. It happens the whole show but only on certain channels we record from.

Re: Static on 1 channel

when you reply to this post, there's a button above the text entry box where you can "attach video".  See if that works.  If not, post it to YouTube and give us the link.

Problems with DVR - YouTube

Heres the video. It was recorded with my phone so it's not great but you'll see how the screen gets covered with little pixels of color throughout the video.

It's just happening on your NBC station?  I think it's this problem ....

It's the local channels (nbc,abc etc) seems like I'm not only but also shouldn't expect it to get better
