    Right now I am trying to watch the Penn State vs Michigan State Game. I have SEVERE Pixelation on the screen. I've done 2 resets. All my Other HD Channels look great. My Local ABC Station which is ABC 24 From Memphis is HORRIBLE. The Whole Screen is ghosting and it's pathetic. Can Anyone Help Me? I don't know what else to do.

    Don't think it is your receiver, i'm getting the same thing through the sat and over the air. I think it is the network. I hope it's fixed before the Oklahoma game. FWIW, my local station is 24 out of Memphis also.

    I know it's not my receiver now. All my other HD Channels look so good and ABC looks aweful. ABC 24 from Memphis is Unwatchable. It's the Most Severe Pixelation I have ever seen. These Aren't Just "Freeze Frames" The Picture has lines sometimes actually going up and down and it's just Gobs and Gobs of Color. I'm Tired of this crap. DirecTv needs to Fix this!

    Would Calling DirecTv and Complaining do any good? Or Is it The Stations Problem and would i just be wasting a Saturday evening on hold trying to get through to DirecTv?

    They need to turn on ABCE on 86 for those of us that have lost the ABC local completely now. I believe they have done something like that in the past.

    I am trying to watch the TT and Oklahoma game here in Washington, DC. WJLA 7 is very pixelated both OTA and on DTV. Everything else looks great. Maybe a problem with ABC in general?

    Thanks Rocker! You know more than the clueless CSR I just called!

    She said I would have to get a waiver to get the channel that the local was suggesting, and it would take 4 months!

    I told her the game would be over long before then!!

    I just called DirecTv and they said there was nothing they could do on their end! My Local ABC Station is Dark. I'm not even getting it. Channel 396 is thankfully on. Why do we have to go through this every week it seems like with ABC HD Games?

    You said the problem was not with your receiver, then in the same post said that D* needs to "fix this". Huh? From what I have read it sounds like the problem is with that station because folks pulling in that same station OTA are having the same problems. :nono2:

    YES DirecTv Needs To Fix This! They Need to Get off their Behinds and Call ABC To Find out Why The Hell This Problem keeps on Re-Occuring Week after Week. This Happens Almost Every Saturday when there is a College Football game on. We are paying DirecTv for their Service and If they are pulling in a "Bad" Signal From ABC, Then DirecTv And ABC Need To get together and "FIX" This Problem. It's Re-Occuring Week after Week! What If This Happens During the Bowl Games like it has been All Regular Season? There will be alot of angry fans around the country.
