    Anybody tried to watch the HD feed of the Penguins/ Devils game on right now? It's horrible! I dont know the technical name of whats happening but its like watching a film with every 3rd frame removed. What does that?

    agreed...unwatchable, but I am having problems with sporatic 103b dropoffs. Hopefully getting fixed Friday when a tech comes out hopefully with a new slimline dish.

    I noticed the problem during the pre-game coverage but during the game it seems ok.

    765-1 is still choppy for me but channel 94 is good.

    FSNY (channel 624) also seems choppy. This is an SD channel though.

    Go Devils! :D

    I just hit the replay button to fix it. I am a few seconds behind live but it looks good.

    I find that this fixes many problems when watching "live" TV on the HR20.

    I am having issues with the volume. I have tried 2 TV's...

    On one TV with DD off, the volume is considerably lower than the SD feed on 628.

    When I moved to my TV that has the DD through a Denon receiver, I am not getting anything through the center channel.

    Well it started out pretty bad, but as the game went on it did seem to get better. I think they rushed that HD out a little too quickly. And after the Pens' game FSN Pittsburgh HD went off the air. Think they just wanted to see how Sidney looked in HD also :D

    After they put new HD on line it is usually a little unstable for the first few days as they peak and fine tune the channel.

    You must have been seeing the game in eyes of the officials.. Blurry..

    Worst officiated game I have seen in the NHL in along time. Devils were just about handed the game.
