FOX - WVUE (8)
6:30 PM to 11 PM
BRRRRP audio and video dropout throughout the Sugar Bowl telecast. Have also noted intermittent dropouts on all New Orleans locals (HD) over the past month or so. These include all stations listed in the OP. I also have OTA HD access on these stations and dropouts do not occur OTA. Occurred on 2 HR21-700's.

When is New Orleans going to get WYES PBSHD.. I can get it OTA, I have talked to WYES many times they said they only are waiting for Dtv to call them they are ready to throw the switch..
I have talked to Dtv many times, I got a call back from DTV Executive (I wish I could remember his name) He told that there is no Bandwidth left on any satellites!! Why are there soooo many PPVHD channels!!!! Lets get real channels on the AIR like PBSHD since they have promised to do so since Dec. 19, 2007… (http://www.directv.c...ssetId=P4450026)

Looks like they are still having this issue, I've noticed it the past few evenings on WDSU while watching America's Got Talent. Even a few break ups, solid 99-100 signal on the TP handling New Orleans locals.
