Interesting - my DD light doesn't flicker - it could be that with it being such a quick dropout (split second), the receiver doesn't loose the connection completely. It might also depend on the audio processor / receiver. I've got the Denon 890.
I'll be calling Bell about this soon - but I just fear all the troubleshooting they'll put me though and want to send out a tech, etc, etc...when it seems to be a more widespread issue that is probably an issue on their side more than anything else.
It's interesting because I've read many threads about the AT&T U-Verse guys seeing this audio dropout issue with no avail - I think the fix for some was to replace the IPTV box with a new Cisco one they started rolling out down south.
@ Dr. Dave - anyone on MTS have audio dropout issues at all?
I wonder if an update to Microsoft Media Room client software would alleviate these issues?
One thing I do need to say - I can live with the audio dropouts for now - i really love the service as a whole, and not having to deal with Rogers is a big plus.
I'm just waiting for the 'special offer' from Bell since I've been using the service for about a year now - since it was in 'trial' phase. I'm still on the 'trial' pricing so not much for me to complain about.
