    I voted no, but it's not because I am OK with it or don't care.
    It's annoying, but I don't see it as a specific DirecTV issue, and am not willing to leave DirecTV over it.

    No, I wouldn't drop D* for that. I don't notice it very often, usually only during the transition from commercial to regular programming. I'll be happy when it goes away but it's not a big enough annoyance to make me switch.

    The wife and I have purposely looked, and listened, for the briippp after reading of the issues posted here. I have not experienced it and the wife would have surely let me know if she had.

    Watch MLB Network for any period of time in HD and you can't miss it.

    I expect that we will be dropping DirecTV sometime this fall for a variety of reasons...its dependent on the continuing advancements in IPTV and NetFlix. The $1500 a year to DirecTV isn't a huge sum of money in the grand scheme of our budget...but the value, quality and service has been dropping...most notably as the content on the non IPTV/NetFlix related channels sinks to lower and lower levels.

    The Brrriiipp issue is just part of the sinking quality.

    Right now I find myself watching my Kindle screen much more than my TV.

    Dont forget blindness and deafness:) Outside of sleeping, blindness, or deafness I dont see how anyone could not see/hear it.

    The only other way I can think of would be to not turn your TV on.

    I wasn't aware baseball could cause one to go blind or deaf. I thought it only put people to sleep.

    This is a good idea; if someone could capture it maybe I could let you know if I've heard it. I rarely hear an audio distortion, and when i do it is inconsequential. Club 771 was a much more agonizing issue to deal with and I'm pleased D* has fixed it!

    It has done it through the entire episode of House tonight. Every 10-15 seconds very annoying.
