Lots of tower and transmitter work going on due to several channels moving frequencies with the digital transmission, as well as moving to the tower farm in Walnut Grove.

* FOX - KTXL (40) - Sunday 10/3/10, watching between 8:00 - 10:00 PM, several audio and video break ups with pixelation. This was during live broadcast and re-watching same recorded programming.

* CW - KMAX (31) - Monday 10/4/10, 8:00 - 9:00 pm during 90210, audio drop out for 3-4 seconds, but video was fine. This happened several times during the show, watching recorded only.

For the last few weeks KCRA has been acting up with a mix between the old brripps and the blanking, where it starts to brip and then blanks.
This varies from every "so often" to ever min or so throughout the daytime and into primetime, and on into my recordings of Jay Leno.
My other locals may have a random glitch, but nothing to the extent that KCRA has been lately.

Picture and audio dropouts, along with pixelation.

These problems have been going on intermittently for most of this year, but this past Tuesday was the worst and unwatchable. The problems seems to happen only during ABC network broadcasts in the evening between 7 - 11 pm.

The beginning of the race was fine but about 2 hours into the broadcast, the same problems started again. It is watchable, but annoying. Commercials do not seem to be an isssue, only the national ABC broadcast.

Yesterday on 11-15-11 during the end of the USC-Oregon game the same issues described above by lose2win with jumpiness (seemed like a very low frame rate) and pixelation during the game on our HR24. The commercials were fine however. The end of the game was unwatchable with the screen becoming basically a huge pixel while the last field goal was being attempted. I has happened before during football games but was a huge problem this Saturday.
