    Sadly, they are back today 12/21.

    Someone please go give the WOIO encoder a good kick.

    Agreed. It made an already bad game worse.

    Yes, please do something about this. It is very annoying.

    I can't believe WOIO or Directv haven't addressed the stuttering. It makes me avoid WOIO at this point.

    Somone please tell me why the HD images, with few exceptions, are letterboxed inside the main 16X9 plasma screen. The only show that is true HD is Lerher.

    I know that I've watched Nightly Business Report and World World in Full HD. I thought in switching it on the other night there was a Great Performances that wasn't letterboxed either. This would be on WVIZ 25 and not 45/49. I haven't watched much in the past week over the Holidays but I will check tonight.

    Do you have the old standard def. PBS on a favorite's list? I can think of some old shows on there that were letter-boxed on a 4:3 screen.

    Still having consistant issues with WOIO CBS 19. Ghost Whisperer was almost unwatchable last Friday night. The game Sunday was terribly distorted as well. These issues need to get resolved.

    Channel - WOIO CBS 19 HD
    Time - All of the Time
    Problem - Stuttering and blocking

    I just got a new HR22-100. I only have HDs on my favorites list. No old SD. Shows like Nova, This Old House, Amer Experience, etc. that say "Presented In High Definition" are not. They're boxed in the middle. I think I might know the answer...WVIZ has divided their digital channel into four separates. DirecTV picks uo only the main dig channel. The true HD channel (#2) is only on two cable systems.

    The issues for WOIO still exist! Pixelation, audio stuttering.

    Yes, I am in Akron and my channel 19 WOIO is barely watchable do to audio and video constant breakups in the signal. I am about ready to go back to cable.

    I have actually heard cable is having the same issues from them.

    WOIO tells me it is a DTV problem. DTV says it is WOIO. It's been nonstop for months for me.

    +1 I'm glad to don't watch WOIO that often except for football. Someone put a boot to that encoder!!!

    In my research it is not a DTV problem. But the bottom line is they need to work together to resolve the issue. This should be resolved immediately not over time.

    I agree with everyone that the WOIO issue is extremely frustrating. Sometimes it makes the channel nearly unwatchable. I wonder if Anyone at the CBS network would care....

    D* is picking up the wrong WEAO PBS channel 49 subchannel. They should be picking up the HD feed on 49-1. Instead they are picking up the SD feed on 49-2. WEAO now appears to have their analog and digital schedules in sync (as does WVIZ) so I don't see why D* can't switch over to the HD subchannel.

    BTW I emailed WEAO about this and got this odd reply:

    I've been in contact with the station manager over at WEAO for a few months now, and yes, he's confirmed that D* won't be picking up the HD feed until 2010. That's just insane! That stinks, WEAO has the best OTA HD signal in town. C'mon DirecTV, get moving!

    I got a response back from DirecTV about the WEAO HD thing and it was a bolierplate answer completely unrelated to the topic. She thinks I am having problems with my equipment and need to call technical support. :rolleyes:
