I have noticed that the Fox station in Reno (KRXI channel 11), the picture and sound has been breakup up for the last week. The screen will have pixelated or go totally green and the sound also goes in and out when the picture has problem.

I saw this during the OT on Sunday Nov 2 2008 around 4:30

Has anyone else seen this?

the station is aware of the issue they are seeing it over the air as well they believe it is at the tower and they hope they can get it fixed before the snow starts sticking at that elevation if snow starts it becomes more complicated to get up there

My audio on the local ABC and NBC channels (HD), continues to regularly drop out. KRNV in Reno thought they had the problem solved, but it still continues......recently ABC started acting up, in addition to the audio, the Closed Captioning does not work. This if tuff for a guy with hearing aids.

Have contacted both DTV and local station manager, but no resolutions.

I don't see any other complaints on this forum and am beginning to fear that it is my box (HR-21 700)

Any thoughts out there for the "High Desert."

For D* subs and probably NFLST subs too Ive seen black screens off and on over the last few weeks. Lasts for 10 seconds or more and random from what I can tell. Doesn't happen on same channel OTA. Has to be a Directv problem.

Reno HD Locals have been out since early this morning, and the updates, as seen when one of the HD Locals is tuned to, from DirecTV are useless. What do I have to do to get a meaningful update? Like what's the cause of this, or when's your realistic ETA for getting it fixed? And at what point is it acceptable for me to start prorating my bill for Local stations, since I'm only getting half of what I pay for? The lack of communication here is really inexcusable. Rant over. :bang


When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth.   :righton:
