Advertisements Anybody else experience audio dropouts on the HD NFL games. I was watching my Chiefs game and I experienced 10 - 15 minute long audio dropouts. I wound up watching the SD channel of the Chiefs game because of the audio problems. Luckily it was a terrible game anyway. This only aggravated my initial problem with DirecTV scheduling guide, when my Chiefs game changed channels, which resulted in my recorder recording a blank channel. The DirecTV broadcast quality is definitely going down hill. I can't imagine how bad the broadcast will be after the new HD channels come online.
