    Not happy AT ALL!!!! All the Boston HD locals are out and have been for hours. Comcast works fine so this is purely a DIRECTV problem. My understanding is that numerous east coast cities are out...not at all happy with DirecTV right now. :mad:

    That's the thing, It's not just Philly. Several large east coast markets are down so it's not a spot beam issue.

    Are you kidding, all of the Boston HD feeds (abc, CBS, NBC, fox, uni, cw) have been out since the start of this mess. Yet I still have the Manchester, NH ABC feed.

    Has anyone heard if WMGM 40 will be back anytime soon?? It's the NBC affiliate out of Atlantic City, NJ.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Woke up this morning with San Diego locals all fuzzy and pixellated (only with motion...static images are sharp).

    Olympics are practically unwatchable.

    Tech coming out tomorrow, but you think it's more broad of a problem than my house?

    I've been getting occasional audio dropouts on WPVI HD. No dropouts on WABC HD on 396.

    This week WCAU 10 HD has had intermittent audio issues. It sounds like a frog or something. It's a very digitized computer like fragment that modulates with the audio.

    Noticeable off of HR24-200 connected to Samsung plasma TV via HDMI direct.

    Did not check other room or Cable ClearQAM yet.

    Just checked WCAU 10 HD on my local cable provider via MPEG2 ClearQAM. The audio has the same horrendous digital artifact on this feed too. This means its WCAU or its NBC national feed to WCAU.

    There is no issue with DirecTV's feed.

    Looks like the video format changed on ch 35-1 and 35-2. It now says HD in the guide and its all postage stamp programming unless you hit the format button and stretch it back.

    I too am having horrible audio issues on WCAU-10. There are NO issues on Channel 40 out of Atlantic City showing exactly the same programming.
