Pixelization on NBC - WRC (4)

I am having a lot of severe pixelization and on NBC - WRC (4) during the Sunday night football game 9:00pm local time.

I have switched back and forth between OTA and Sat and it is only occurring on the SAT feed.

I had the same issue in Mobile, AL (WPMI NBC 15) as well as the rest of the HD locals. SD feeds were okay.

HR21-100

For the past several weeks I have experienced continual intermittent video pixelation and skips on WRCTV HD ch 4. This does not effect the audio however there is a continual severe lip sync problem. These issues are not present in the SD for ch 4 or in the OTA broadcast.

I have called D* customer support about this problem more than once but there has been no indication that it is getting better. I will try to contact WRCTV engineering to see if they can work this issue with D* engineering.

Spoke to D* csr again about lip sync problem and was told it was a WRCTV problem and had been reported to WRCTV Engineering. Called WRCTV Engineering and was told that this was a D* problem and that WRCTV had notified D* Engineering to that effect. WRCTV Engineering told me they would call D* and find out what was going on.

WRCTV Engineering called me back after they spoke with D* Engineering and said that D* indicated that they thought the problem had been corrected this morning. Will check to see if it has been fixed when I get back home this evening.

This thread seems to get little traffic once things stabilized, but I thought I'd note this here, since it's a locals issue.

Seems like every weekend, the WTTG broadcast of the Redskins (don't start) game has had no CC (closed captions) on the D* feed. On the 5-1 OTA HD signal, it's been fine. All other HD locals at the time are fine, and so is WTTG other times (early morning net feed, nighttime, etc.).

I have no clue why only the Fox feed for the games to D* would be bad, when OTA is always good. I'm about to report this to D*'s CC address and then to the FCC if I don't get a response. I assume the issue is D*'s problem, as it's not my hardware or even WTTG's, unless someone is sabotaging the D* feed itself and leaving the OTA alone.

(And people say you/we don't need OTA nowadays...)

Any comments? Anyone get this quick enought (Now!) to test CC on the game today?

Thanks!

HR21-100
No diagnostic report

Still having this issue after several weeks of reporting it to D* CSRs multiple times.

WTF is going on? How long should it take to correct this problem? If D* engineers/techs are monitoring this thread why cant you correct this problem?

I'm on the verge of suspending my service over this and activating my Verizon FIOS service. D*s CSRs think that offering the extra HD channels for free makes up for this but it doesnt. WRCTV is an important local in the DC area. I cant beleive that other subs arent complaining about this.

Any updates on this? The lip sync has gotten really bad on WRC HD in the past couple of weeks and I'm now avoiding watching anything on Directv and NBC. This is crazy. We aren't talking about a minor sync issue, but a significant delay between picture and sound.

Seen it for weeks myself. I thought it got better but not cured. Extremely weird. Is it all broadcasts or studio only? Because I'm trying to recall if I've seen it in recorded prime time shows, or just like the live early am news and 6 pm news.

It is all day, all the time regardless of programming. It appears on both my televisions - one with a HD DVR and one just HD receiver. One has sound running through a surround receiver, one straight to the TV.

Nothing seems to fix it, and as someone mentioned in a post above, do most people not complain to Directv or are most people not experiencing it?

Anyone know if the counties included in the Washington DC DMA recently changed?  I'm in Franklin County and have always been able to receive Washington DC locals along with Harrisburg PA locals, even earlier this week.  Now today the DC channels are all blacked out while I'm trying to watch the news.  From what I've seen online it looks like now only Fulton County in PA is included in the Washington DC DMA.  Did this just change this week?

NBC 4 from DC doesn't seem to be coming through in HD anymore.  Anyone know anything about this?  I can receive the channel in SD but nothing in HD.
