This is effecting the HD Directv feeds of all KC network locals.

This has been occurring more and more frequently in the last week.

Issue: the HD network feeds appear to be low quality, and have a lower framerate. Examples: Watching Letterman last night, which normally has the smooth video look, it looked as if it were a cheap video, almost looked as if it were on cheap film. Appears to be slightly jerky - not huge, just enough that it's not smooth. Turning to the SD feed, and everything looks normal. Also, tuning into the OTA HD feed, and it also looks normal. So only effecting the HD Satellite feed local.

Occurring on all 4 networks. Still seeing this effect this morning. Have been seeing it on and off for at least a week.

KMBC HD has mysteriously disappeared, completely. Not in my guide, and I'm stuck with the lousy center-cut SD feed.

ABC-9 KMBC reception is real bad today during the TT and Missouri game. I have noticed some pixilation on recorded CBS programming. More than once I have had to go to OTA for a watchable picture.

Having a problems with KC locals SD channels 5,4 and 41, but not 9. Anyone else out there with this problem? Directv CS says nothing wrong on their end:)

Thanks,

Rick

KSHB Channel 41 had bad breakups during the first 15 minutes of so of the Chiefs/Steelers game on Nov 27. It then cleared up for the remainder of the game.

KCTV Channel 5 CBS Kansas City is unwatchable tonight. Good thing I can get it OTA for the Denver/NE game. This has been an intermittent problem with my locals.

All Kansas City HD locals have been very poor quality for at least the last week. Did DTV change the compression it uses on them? Or is there a satellite problem? Or???

Was not going to be home during the Chiefs broadcast 12-3 CST Sunday, so decied to record it on HR-34. The entire broadcast was like I was watching it OTA and the signal was not strong enough. Picture would stutter for about 5-10 secs then catch up to show maybe 10 secs before stuttering again. Did not happen on comercials. Not that the game was worth my time anyway...so maybe was a blessing in disguise.
