Local Stations Sound & Picture Freeze Every 5 Seconds

I have a HR44-700 DTV Satellite Receiver.  Yesterday, my picture and sound would freeze up every 5 seconds for all the local channels ONLY.  The Certified HDMI cable from the Directv receiver goes into my Denon AVR eARC and HDMI cable goes out to the eARC on the TV.  The Denon AVR sends the sound to 5 speakers and one subwoofer.

The solution was to unplug the Certified HDMI cable from the DTV Satellite Receiver and from the Denon AVR.  Then plug back in the HDMI. 

Prior, I had done the usual Directv Satellite Receiver reset, which did not resolve the issue.   So, it goes to show you, that even with Certified HDMI cables, there could be a connection issues over time.  That particular Certified HDMI cable is only 10 months old and the new upgraded Denon AVR, 2 months old.  

This sound and picture freezing was resolved too, on the other 2 TV's with wireless clients.  I thought I would post for informational purposes.  Check the, "Connections."
