    Maybe I'm just generalizing the problems in the data stream, but there was a "Brriip" with some video problem, in tonight's House on USA.

    When I was trying to find out when Fios TV would be available in the City of Pittsburgh I noticed people with Fios have the same problem. I was thinking about leaving D* until I seen everyone else seems to have this problem, cable as well.

    This is happening across all content providers on some of their HD offerings. If some of you still feel that D* needs to fix this, and right away, you really need to get over yourselves, its disgraceful the way some of you are acting. Its appalling to see.

    More likely you're simple not watching the channels/shows.
    It wasn't that long ago I only had it with my locals. Then as I started watching House on USAHD it's clear this and some others that have been posted in http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=152754 have this problem.

    What's disgraceful is that you would come in here and bash those of us who notice these problems. DirecTV has admitted, albeit not officially, that their encoders have issues. This isn't some imaginary problem, or a problem that exists universally. There are specific issues where DirecTV's MPEG4 encoders crap out, and the MPEG2 signal carries on without any noticable issue.

    I think it's you that needs to get over yourself. If you find this so disgraceful and appalling I'd suggest you don't read this thread rather than attacking those who are taking the time to document and report a problem.

    I bet it does, the audio is probably out of spec, I suspect that the D* encoders just stuff the same data in the audio stream until audio and video are synced, and I think AC3 is supposed to have overlaps and if they just cram them in to correct sync, they may have CRC errors, you could probably change a setting in your audio receiver to ignore errors and you would probably hear it.

    Have to echo those sentiments, someones got themselve's a bad case of "God Complex" to come in here speaking in that tone but looking over his system he just doesn't have very much invested in his setup and perhaps doesn't use it as much or as importantly as others here. Still unjustifiable to talk down to people as if he were a supreme being scolding a child. Whether you have the issue or not that is why we have these threads, if you do but can live with it fine, for some may not be important AND THAT'S OK, for others that believe they are paying way too much now for less than "near" perfect service and this is unacceptable, WELL, THAT'S OK TOO. We don't say....My God son, your paying over 130 dollars for service and you can't rely on your programs to even be watchable or recorded and your OK with that, you must be a dumb**s. We just don't do that here either way it's fine we are just reporting issues and the magnitude of how much it means to us, unfortunately some people don't understand that.

    brrrp issue is an infrequent nuisance, not enough to cancel D*. We just have to be patient, give D* time to solve the issue. My 3yr old niece sums it best, " Hey the TV is tooting ". :lol:

    If you get hit with a good one ... the brrrip will come complete with a stalled video feed that turns black for some number of seconds. It's way more than just a dolby digital/receiver issue.

    It should be since they charge a premium price for it.

    Misguided information.

    It has been repeated reported that 98% of the problem revolves around the content providers passing the burps on to DirecTV in their stream. CBS, in particular, was a major source, and has taken several steps to try to irradicate it.

    98%? You want to give us the basis for that number?
