We began experiencing this kind of problem last November. It only occurs on our HD channels. Both picture and sound would drop out.
After three visits and 3 set top boxes the problem seems to have been mostly resolved. The real fix came from the technician reconfiguring the splitters at the connection to our house so that the line to our high def TV had it's signal strength increased by 3 db. Since then it seems to be OK but the problem was always intermittent and we are not yet sure it is solid.
