Excessive ARP Broadcast from DVR

I noticed some latency issues on my wireless home network so I did some packet capturing with Wireshark and found that my dish DVR is broadcasting ARP messages at a rate of 3-5 broadcast per second. This seems excessive and is causing bandwidth congestion and collisions. Why is it constantly sending out excessive ARP broadcast? Is this a known issue, and if so do you have a fix other than taking it offline?

That does seem pretty excessive, I would need to forward this to our receiver technical department so they can look into the matter. Can you send us a PM with your DISH account number so I can get this forwarded? We will also need the receiver software version that is in your receiver.
