IF YOU ARE IN THE WASHINGTON DC DIRECTV MARKET AND ARE HAVING ISSUES SIMILAR TO THE STORY BELOW, RESPOND TO THIS MESSAGE WITH YOUR STORY. ALSO, POST PICTURES OF YOUR TV ISSUE HERE AS WELL. WE WILL SEND THE ENTIRE THREAD TO DIRECTV. BECAUSE WE WILL BE SENDING THIS THREAD TO DIRECTV, PLEASE RESPOND ONLY ABOUT THIS ISSUE. ISSUE: MPEG-4 FEEDS FROM DIRECTV (ESPECIALLY ABC7-LOST, DH, ETC) HAVE PICTURE BREAK-UPS EVERY SO OFTEN - "THE GREEN CRAP". AUDIO STILL WORKS, BUT THE VIDEO IS TERRIBLE. I'm afraid that since this is just a Washington DC problem, the issue will get swept under the rug. Each of us complaining individually doesn't seem to work at all. Does anyone have a good idea about how to do this? -Ian (Fairfax, VA) This is from one of the threads: "I watch ABC7 on Directv, and receive DirecTv's high def feed. However, there is a major problem with the ABC7 Hi-def broadcasts. Approximately 3 times per hour (in durations that last from a few seconds up to a full minute), the picture breaks up almost completely. It is not due to poor reception (that breakup looks different) or my specific equipment, as I have been in contact with several other local DirecTv viewers, and all are experiencing the same problem. I wanted to make sure that ABC7 was aware of the problem and are taking steps to work with DirecTv to resolve the problem. You can see a picture of what is happening in your DirecTv feed here:XXX" That streaking doesn't look like normal macro blocking, or the typical "brake" up you see from signal loss, or error in decompressing. That seems more like a communication between the HR20 and the TV. I connect through component and I had the same exact scrambled image last night. Most of the time it only lasts for around 10secs. There was one last night that lasted for a good minute though."
