Last nights Colts/Chargers game was MUCH better on WTHR than the Sunday night games have been for weeks. I only noticed a few artifacts and that was very fast moving action and I think I only noticed them because I was looking for them.

I watched it also - it did look better but I was experiencing some dropped frames - ie a couple of times it looked like a player was doing stop motion animation. Also I compared to 13-1 from an AM21 - didn't see it there. I did see macroblocking particularly on fleshtones - like the center's arm just before a snap stood out to me.

Anybody in the Indy area having trouble with their local hd channels not having any sound?

On both of my HDDRVs, I have no sound on WISH (8), WTHR (13), WXIN (59) or WFYI (20)

Both WTTV (4) and WRTV (6) have sound.

All SD versions of the above channels have sound.

Just checked the HD channels from the satellite for 4, 6, 8, 13, 20, and 59. All sound fine with my HR21.

I have had problems on all of my receivers while watching the bowl games today on all of the hd locals on dtv. Picture is blurry at times and pixelating. Anyone else having problems? Switched to over the air and it came in clear. ESPNHD other HD channels are fine only local hd. I called dtv and they wrote up a service request.

Anyone else having problems in the Indy area? Or anyoe have any thoughts as to why?

Thanks

I agree, Bama. I was watching the NHL hockey game from Wrigley Field today on WTHR in HD via DirecTV and found the blurring and pixelation to be annoying. I switched to WTHR OTA and the picture was much better.

I had no problem with sound....but I do agree that WTHR, WRTV, WXIN and WISH all had MAJOR pixellation issues during the day. WTHR had been bad for a couple of months especially noticeable during Sunday night football but had cleared up over the last month or so. Now all 4 major networks were bad today. WRTV (ABC) was at times almost unwatchable. WISH (CBS) was just as bad.

Things change. Last night and this morning I'm getting picture but no sound on WFYI-HD Ch. 20. The other HD locals are fine. This is with an HR21.

I agree the picture has been really bad the last few days. This problem occurred a month ago and then it seemed to clear up.

I contacted WTHR today and they said the issue is with D* over compressing the local signals. It has to be D* because when I switch to OTA the picture improves significantly. WTHR is going to contact D* and the other locals GM's and report the issue. Maybe they can bring enough heat to get it corrected

Hopefully they will get more accomplished with D* than I did...I completely agree with it being a problem on their end. I am really getting tired of not being able to speak w/someone at D* that is actually working on the problem instead of csr who doesnt have a clue...

Anyone else have major issues on wthr 13 (during the office and 30 rock) and wrtv 6 (during Grey's Anatomy) last night. All my recordings on those channels have major braking up and the brrripp sound through out the recordings. Also happened on WISHTV channel 8 (Harper's Island).

I had the same problem while trying to watch the news at 11pm (was watching recorded stuff before then). I rebooted the box and went to bed.

As soon as I got on the phone w/ a CSR it went back to normal. However, now I'm noticing that NBC seems to not be HD. Are you experiencing that as well?

Yes, all HD locals in Indy are breaking up. Had to switch over to rabbit ears. All national HD channels are fine here.
