    Has anyone else had problems with this channel today. It's been mostly dark all day, all the other channels are working fine.

    I watched Brit Hume at 6 without incident. Did a quick check and Shep Smith is showing just fine.

    I'm watching the Fox Report with Shepard Smith and the picture looks great.

    I've watched in on and off during different parts of the day and everything looked normal to me.

    That annoying right-hand sidebar was gone from Special Report with Brett Beyer tonight. Let's hope it stays gone.

    Couldn't agree more! Fox has the most annoying sidebar. Because they have a side bar in their normal programming you get a double sidebar in HD that is soooo stupid .

    Maybe they were sensitive to our comments about the side boxes (especially the double boxes on some shows). The whole evening was bar-free!! Daytime shows still have them so obviously they are stuck on this idea... most likely because most of their signal sources and ENG stuff is 4:3. Still, it's an improvement... I'll take it.

    Are there any shows on Fox News shot in 16:9 other than Huckabee and Fox and Friends?

    I've noticed the sidebar's been gone from their primetime programming for several diays now... but during the late night repeats of the same shows, the sidebar is back.

    I had a problem with just 1 channel pixelating, it was odd because it would only do it on 1 of my receivers, not both a quick reboot solved it....

    Edit:
    Never mind. I found it now. I had to set my Favorites to show all. Since when did it go live?

    Turns out the problem was with multiple HD channels experiencing problems. Had D* out and it was determined that an LNB was bad but instead of replacing it they just took down the old school 5LNB dish I had and replaced it with the newer Slimline. Absolutely no problems since.
