4K DVR recordings are pixelated

Usually happens on Fox and ABC. More often than not the eve recording us pixilated and in watchable. Sometimes it happens on live tv but if we change channels then go back it clears up. The DVM is useless if this continues. How do we fix this? I have reset the box. Does not help

usually individual channels are cuased by in-home spliters or cable ends or loose connections causing low-signal and/or high noise. Sometimes it is just a failing 'hard drive' on the older DVRs. if you play back the same recording on a smart phone/tablet is the video non-pixelated?

I just tried it in the app on my iPhone and the recording was fine. Weird.

that shows the network program was not the problem. that points to the home wiring or the wiring going to your home. you can schedule an appointment to fix the problem.
