I have a hd pvr ,the t.v works great, when i record a show I get pixalation every 30-45 seconds non stop wtf is going on? Is this a warranty issue?
If you rewind 30 seconds or so, does the pixilation happen in the same times?
Does it only happen on recorded programs, but live TV is ok?
If only on recorded items, try power cycling and/or resetting the PVR. If happens on Live TV too, more likely a signal issue.
Are you still experiencing the reception problem? This definitely sounds like a signal issue, like kevinds mentioned. You may have reviewed it already, but we have some troubleshooting steps outlined for this issue in this document:How to troubleshoot poor picture quality / pixelation. Please let me know if you're still noticing pixelation, as I'd be happy to help out.
I get the same issue, mostly on playback of recordings and on the same locations if I rewind. We have a PVR expander also. I've tried all the step in troubleshooting and had the coax cable replaced. I've also updated the firmware on the box. Any ideas?
We are using a DCT6416iii.
I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing the same issue. As you've tried our troubleshooting steps for pixelation and the problem hasn't been resolved, our next step would be a service appointment. I've sent you a DM regarding this.
Can I have a serivce appointment regarding pixalation on my PVR? Many of recording on PVR been pixalation now.

kevinds I have done those procedures, still not working.
If possible please try the steps in the link that kevinds supplied and if necessary we can definitely book a service call for you.
Please let us know how that works out for you.
I had the technician came in already. They inform me that the freezing on my TV is due to incompatibility between my PVR box and Expander. The best way to avoid the freezing is not to use expander, only the PVR with internal hard drive.
