    No, the weather here has been pretty good. Since it's hasn't happened before, I won't worry about it too much.

    The episode was so confusing, your DVR was probably confused.

    The only problem that I had was about a 10 second blank screen shortly before Hurley tells The Others that Jacob had sent him. I had the same problem on both DVR's that recorded the episode. So it had to be a signal problem.

    Your DVR must think its still in last season with all the time traveling.

    No issues here aside from a few instances of a wierd pixelation at the top of the screen in a couple scenes, nowhere near ruining the scene, but enough for me to notice.

    Yep, I had the same problem. There must have been a dropout on the signal DirecTV got from WABC here in NY.

    I had the pixies too but luckily they were very brief. Kinda worried me for a second, I thought the island was moving again.

    I didn't have any issues watching the recording via the HDMI output. But when I started to rewatch Lost while also recording it to DVD with a Toshiba DVD Recorder hooked to the s-video output of the DVR I couldn't figure out how to turn off the Spanish closed-captioning. I couldn't figure out if it was coming from the DVR, DVD Recorder, or TV. Each component's menus said that captioning was off. Very frustrating.

    YUP. Me too. Been getting a lot of that recently. Picture freezes for a second then it all goes black for around 3-10 seconds. http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=172069 Seems like they replaced the Brripps with blackouts. :eek2: Do you both have the newest firmware ugrade?

    Also in the NYC area.

    Round Rock,...
    I had this type of thing happen last night on OTA ABC watchin Modern Family.

    It froze about 6 minutes in and when I tried to start over and fast forward, it skipped to about 10 minutes in. Nothing I did would get this back for me. Happened twice on this one show.

    Hmmm, seems "ABC" is the keyword here. My wife says it happen on other channels but I have only seen it on ABC programming but you're the 1st out of NYC area person who has mentioned it so far..

    You mean because there are now 3 count 'em 3 different John Lockes played by the same actor (as well as two of everybody else)? Or because dead people keep coming back to life? Naaahhh! That's just good writing! :rolleyes:

    BTW, I think ABC will repeat "LAX 2" just before the new ep next week, so you have a second shot at part of it.

    They are repeating the previous weeks episode before each upcoming episode with the "pop-up" text boxes like they did last year explaining all the details and references of each scene.

    Round Rock,...
    Had problems with Fox last night watching a recording of American Idol. Actually the symptoms here were a freeze of the video (but not the UI). When I attempted to "resume" from the play list, it started over at the beginning of the recording. I fast forward past where the video/audio freeze happened and I can continue to watch...until it freezes again.

    In the 1 hour recording, I had to do this 4 times.

    That sounds more like a hard drive problem.

    This is what I am getting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgKZ4aNivXs

    Great. That means I get to see the three John Lockes twice each. :rolleyes:
