Because, I'm always afraid these companies are looking for ways to squeeze more channels in the same bandwidth at the expense of picture quality.

So does anyone know the specific reasoning to why CBS and WGN looked like crap? Glad its been fixed though. I haven't turned on the TV today to see, but I have more shows recording tonight. Lets hope the issue is long gone.

WMAQ looked real bad too. But Ok today.

Now... just need to get WCIU 26-5 on the AM-21 and I'll be happy. Who the heck needs duplicate SD programming on WYIN and WYCC subchannels. (translation: remove 20-2, 56-4 and ADD 26-5) Been waiting for 11 months now. Hopefully you'll get the fix in. Thanks.

Anyone with a 5.1 sound system/subwoofer notice their sub producing a constant low level rumbling noise while on Channel 7 ABC?


This is prevalent no matter what the content.
This does not happen on other channels, nor on 7.1 OTA.

Also only on Ch. 7, little horizontal lines periodically across the screen randomly, a few minutes or more apart.
On all my tv's,again only on Directv ch 7.

Great... Just what we need, another sub-channel degrading the bandwidth of the main HD channel.

If you are talking about Cozi TV, it is in the guide data on channel 5-2.

I notice this from time to time also usually during local programming or local commercials (both via Directv and ota). I also see this now and then on WPWR. If memory serves me correctly, both WFLD and WPWR are now operated from Nevada and fed to Chicago for everything except local news and prime time network feeds which are still handled in Chicago. I have noticed these interlacing artifacts since the switch several months back (it used to be a lot worse than it is now). Perhaps that is what you are seeing. I am also seeing some very minor stuttering on WMAQ/NBC on prime time shows.
