Did anyone else experience pixelization and loss of sound every few seconds during the "Late Show with David Letterman" WFOR (4) tonight. I have been having this issue with most of the local HD channels even though my signal numbers are 80 or greater on all transponders.

The DTV off-air tuner which selects the RF frequencies to map to the correct digital OTA channels has several software errors:
1. Ch. 8- WGEN-- it is not selecting the Miami RF frequency of 21 to map to 8-1.... It is choosing the RF frequency of 8, belonging to Key West, which is hundreds of miles away.... Thus, we get "searching for signal" on 8-1.... DTV needs to select RF8 for Monroe County zip codes and RF21 for Miami-Dade and Broward counties.... Otherwise, 8-1 will never come in off air for most subscribers using the OTA tuner..
2. Ch. 22- WSBS-- similar issues as WGEN.... DTV is using RF frequency of 22 (Key West) and not RF 50 belonging to Miami.... Thus, 22-1 is also always "searching for signal"....
3. Ch. 63- WBEC--- the OTA tuner has excluded this channel altogether even though it's part of DTV's local listings.....WBEC is a full-power must-carry for this DMA and thus, should be integrated into the tuner commands as 63-1... The RF frequency is 40.
4. Ch. 41- WJAN-- has moved to Ch. 48 and has new call letters, WFUN.
It is listed incorrectly in the Guide and is excluded from the OTA tuner commands (just like WBEC), should be 48-1.... The RF frequency is 48.
