DIRECTV is aware of issues in Chicago and are doing what they can when they can. Some have been fixed and others will be fixed.
That's definitely reassuring. Every morning my wife watches Judge Joe Brown on Fox 32 and at almost every scene change parts of the video distort for a second. I have confirmed that this doesn't happen while using OTA. It isn't just Judge Joe Brown... it's many shows on Fox (and ch 26 I believe). Not to mention the severe audio brrrrrrping on channel 2 as mentioned previous times.
This kind of stuff normally doesn't bother me but these issues have been going on for months.
At least they are aware and looking into it.
