    The HD locals are working. Wahoo! Channel 7 (KTVB) seems to studder occationally. I didn't notice any of the same issue on channel 2 (KBCI). I am using an HR20-700 fw 290.

    OK I will officially report the channel 7 issue (I even looked at the directions :D ).

    Channel(s) affected: Channel 7 KTVB
    Date/Time: 11-7-08 12:30am
    Description of Issue: As someone else here described, picture freezes up about every 5-10 seconds for a second or two, very annoying. This doesn't happen OTA or on the other SAT-delivered channels.

    In a side issue, I am guessing this is intentional for now but channel 9 KNIN is the SD feed, not the HD feed. 9-1 broadcasts in 1080i and shows HD programming for the CW prime time block.

    ok the audio dropped out at about 8:22PM on 11/6 and there was no sound for the next few minutes on KTRV fox 12. I have also noticed the problems on KTVB channel 7 Billcrid is reporting but didn't note the time

    5:15AM on 11/08 there is no audio on KTRV channel 12 and the problem has lasted for a few minutes. Another thing I noticed is this problem must be Directv's end because when I switch to OTA the audio is working.

    Hey Doug - where do we discuss/help for local HDs outside of this thread so it doesn't get gummed up?

    I noticed all locals from the SAT going to my R22 are coming in letterbox/windowbox, despite the IRD set to 4:3. All other SDs are 4:3.

    Does this indicate there is no dual illumination in Boise yet? i.e. are the only locals for those without the 72.5, the HD locals?

    Any idea on if they are going to be broadcasting any of the subchannels? I know 7 and 4 both have a number of them.

    I had the same issue, although it was only the "dialogue" (center audio) that was missing. All of the background music and sound effects were present.

    That's highly unlikely. I believe 7 has 7.2 which I think is 24/7, and 4 is PBS so you'll get no subs through DirecTV for sure. 4.5 is the HD subchannel of PBS here.

    KTVB (NBC channel 7) seems to be having strange audio disruptions. It's not doing this on any other HD local.

    The audio will cut out at random intervals for about 5 to 10 seconds then come back.

    It was definitely evident during Monday's (2/9) Heroes 8pm broadcast, and somewhat during Medium at the 9pm timeslot.

    I'm having audio drops on channel 2, CBS and channel 7 NBC. Happens 5-7 times per show and last about 3-4 seconds. Been going on for over a month or more. Hard to follow programs at time. Last night Ghost Whisper had musical background, but voices of characters were not there until the show was about half over.

    I agree the audio drop outs and stuttering picture that only shows up on Local Channel 7 KTVB on HD is getting rediculous. Some shows are so broken it is really hard to follow. I am very close on asking for credit for the past 2 months of this issue or dropping locals and going back to the trusty antenna and forgo DTV solutions.

    If anyone has a contact at DirecTV that can get this fixed or we can push some buttons with that woul be great!

    Bumping this up, the KTVB Channel 7 (NBC) HD feed is really, really bad now. It's dropping audio consistently and the picture gets distorted from time to time.

    I have tried calling DTV to report the issue, but they tell me everything is OK and that they will send someone out to look at my equipment :nono:.
