    All locals are off the air in Portland, OR. Called Tech and they gave the usual spiel that there is a technical problem, and it could be up to 72 hours before it's fixed. :mad:

    Appears to be SD as well. Our TV died last night so I've been fighting with a HDMI->DVI cable to a 17" monitor I have haha, and thought i had jacked things up bad. Thanks for verifying that the locals are out.

    I bet it was due to the huge storm that hit downtown and the west hills today.

    The information given on the screen is to switch to SD. My SD channels are hidden and switching them back on in the guide is no good, as they don't appear in the guide.

    lansbury, yeah I had the same issue, but I tried some non-HD content. Maybe that was still an HD channel with SD content.

    What channels are our SD locals on?

    This morning the local HDs are back up for me, but I'm experiencing fairly frequent hiccups in the reception. Sometimes it's video (screen "digitizes" for a second and then comes right back), sometimes it's audio (small stutter in the sound), and sometimes it's both. I've tested two of my three receivers and experience this on both. It seems to happen only on local channels (see it on channel 2, 6, and 8, but don't see it on ESPN, comedy central, natgeo, etc). I was watching locals as recently as 4:30pm yesterday and this wasn't happening.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    I have been getting this but not frequently this morning. But then there has been a rather heavy storm over the PDX metro area, so I put it down to that.
