    Well I would like to start this thread with possible problems with WOIO Ch. 19 in HD. Any one else getting loss of signal and digital distortion with the HD signal on 19-1? Just awful. And that's not any comment on local news programming either.

    Well.... If you are talking about the MPEG4 channel 19 (HD), then yes. If you are talking about the OTA channel 19-1, then no.

    I have seen the same distortion that you are experiencing on the Directv provided WOIO 19. Hope they can get these issues worked out soon.

    Broken...
    Please reserve this thread for issues with the DirecTV-delivered HD LiLs for Cleveland-Akron, OH. May I suggest the Cleveland HD OTA channel thread at AVS Forums for discussion of OTA channel issues.

    Stuttering problem here currently on Channel 3 NBC Cleveland. Slow motion action not sure if it's part of the pre game show or not. Commercials seem fine.

    I can't believe they can't get the audio in sync with the video after all this time. The Cleveland CBS station is the worst. Is there anything that can be done to fix this?

    Here's the reply I received from CH45/49

    Eric,
    If everything goes according to plan DirecTV will begin using our HD signal on November
    1, 2008. If there are any technical issues that come up that date may be pushed back.
    Ultimately DirecTV has to use local HD signal when the analog signals cease next
    February.
    Thanks for writing.

    Someone needs to reboot the encoder for WOIO ch 19. Macroblocking and audio worbling has progressively grown worse over the past 2 weeks.

    Description of Issue - Same as everyone else watching 19 lately. Lots of green blocking and audio stuttering throughout the Survivor finale. I thought it was the wind last night slightly adjusting the dish but it does look like it's on 19's side.

    Is there anything worth watching on 43? Even if it was in HD?

    The channel 19 pixelation & audio stuttering problems appear to be fixed. Haven't noticed any of the problems this morning.
