Local channel blackouts & pixelation - DirecTV DVR

For Local channel blackouts & pixelation, relating to DirecTV DVRs and receivers. I live in the north western Kentucky area and have been having local channel blackouts off and on for about four weeks now. Now I can't even watch the channels, they are almost constantly blacked out. I called DirecTV about the issue and they insist that the problem is my receiver which should be replaced at my expense. I asked them to just send somebody to check the lines and dishes but the computer didn't tell them to do that. I don't believe it's the receiver because all the other channels come in fine, it's only the locals. Does anyone have any info or thoughts on the whole ordeal?
