<<Yeah, I posted over here ***** that there have been problems, but nobody was saying anything, I began to wonder if it was just me.

Sunday and Monday was terrible. Tuesday evening was fine then last night I turned it over and it was bad again. This morning I noticed the audio was off about 3-4 seconds. It would start the advertisement for the next commercial while the video was still finishing up the previous advertisement.>>

Thanks, 'Sker. I didn't know about the other thread (so which one are we supposed to post problems to? Seems kinda redundant....) This thread seemed to have died, so I also began to wonder if I was the only one having problems with 10. It appears that my experience has been the same as yours, on the same nights.

Tonight its working fine on CSI - no stuttering or audio-sync delay at all, identical to OTA.

Non Jeff - Thursday all 3 of the local HD channels seemed to be working excellent. Hopefully they have got all the bugs out.

I think you'll have better results posting your issues in the HD Locals forum. It may seem like no one is listening but that is where we direct people who need the information.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect

What birds are the Lincoln / Grand Island / Hastings locals on? What satellite(s) would I need for a new install to get these? Does anyone know of a map of the spot beam? I'm new to the satellite game, and am wondering if I will be able to pickup the Lincoln locals in Omaha.

(I am aware of how DirecTV handles local channels, and am looking to find out just from a technical standpoint whether I can receive them.)

You will not get Lincoln locals on D* in Omaha and vice versa. You get 3, 6, 7, 15, 42 in Omaha.

Are the spot beams really that narrow? Omaha is so close I'm pretty sure that the spot beam will allow for usage on the very Southwest tip of the city.
