    Could this have anything to do with them? Not sure why Directvs signal passes thru their antenna and Dish and cable systems don't.

    You have three duplicates; you can delete the extras.

    As to your question, could you please flesh it out with more detail?

    DirecTv probably picks up the signal off-air which measn that if the transmitter is switched off for any reason DireCTv won't get a signal. Dish must use a fiber/cable connection so won't lose the channel.

    Now that the TS has posted info from the TV station, I think I understand the question. But texasbrit beat me to my answer.

    I tried to post this from my phone last night, said it couldn't connect to the server, so I was surprised to even see it here today. It's the issue posted before about recordings, mainly on my NBC station where the recording pauses, then quickly jitters back and forth, making the show unwatchable. I just thought it odd, that DirecTV gets it's signal differently than Dish or cable systems

    in this particular case is different. DIRECTV also gets certain locals over fiber as well

    Ah, I see now- the attachment in your OP didn't open, or wasn't there.
    How the signal is transmitted isn't generally the problem with some NBC locals- it's got to be encoding.

    I no longer record from NBC due to this issue. I have had it for a long time, as have others that you can find here and on the other site. It comes and goes. I don't dare rewind a show on NBC, either!

    Different issue, if you read the thread.
