I contacted WGAL and emailed the screen shots and this is the response I got:
"DirecTV and Dish Net take our picture off the air and I can tell you that our off-air picture does not display the issues that you have describe.
Dish Net has been a problem for some time. DirecTV picks our HD signal up at WHP in Harrisburg (not a good location for our signal). We have offered to deliver the signal to them by fiber (as we do with our analog signal because they could not receive it well at that location) but so far they have not accepted.
DishNet picks us up in York from a site where you can clearly see our tower (it is less than five mile away from the tower). We have discussed these issues many times with them and it never get fixed.
We accept responsibility for the audio issue for the last few days but not the pixelation."
Looks like the ball is now in D*s court to investigate the problem and fix it.
Can anyone at D* please confirm that this problem is going to be fixed anytime soon?
