    I'm getting a solid jitter on this channel that I haven't noticed on others... anyone else have this issue? Any motion seems jittered.

    I haven't noticed this with the PS3 or anything else.

    Currently watching Ariel America: Hawaii and it's pretty bad.

    Yes, it is unwatchable.

    It was happening for me as well to a point where it was unwatchable

    It reminds me of a frame rate issue.

    Looks like what happens when the 3:2 is restored incorrectly in a cross convert from 23.98 which is what the show probably originated as. When 3:2 is not set up correctly, the picture jitters like this. Either an NG master or something real wrong with the server.

    It also proved that the channel runs on automation apparently because no one corrected the problem...
