    I'm having problems getting my HD locals in Los Angeles. Pixelation, freezing and no audio, only on High-Def locals everything else works

    Is this a problem only I'm experiencing?

    Thanx

    This might be cause for a menu reset.

    It's not a problem everyone else is experiencing anyway. Questions:

    Did this just start, or has it been this way since install? Off and on?

    Are there trees where the dish points?

    I had an issue during install with pixellation on some channels, and the installer went and changed something and it was fixed. I think he changed out one multiswitch for another, but I'm not completely sure. It's possible he moved the antenna a tad.

    In any event, I'd call DirecTV and have them come fix it.

    Southern...
    Both OTA locals(and all the sub-channels) and HD locals (from the satellite) are coming in fine in Santa Monica. :)
