Just to add to the monitoring thread. WNBC HD (Channel 4) and channel 83 are stuttering for me today. HD Channel 392 is fine. I've noticed the same pattern (always channel 4, sometimes 83) of stuttering for weeks now.

83??

On one of my HR21's this AM I noticed the following:

MPEG-4 NBC is an abomination.

I noticed it being REALLY bad this AM during the 6am news...and as others have said the MPEG-2 HD feed was fine on 392 was fine...and the OTA on my HR-20 was fine.

It fluctuates visually from scenes like you're watching one of those picture book type things where you flip the pages and you see the characters move (i.e. the video stutters and jitters) or the audio is so far off from the video it looks like you're watching a dubbed foreign film. In addition the crawl along the bottom stutters and jitters.

In addition, my wife was up to see Leno last night and she said the was VERY off on that as opposed to the timing of the video.

I flipped to the MPEG-4 feeds of CBS/ABC/FOX/WPIX and they seemed fine for the 1-2 minutes I was watching each of them.

Channel 4 WNBC MPEG4 is still a mess with viseo stuttering. How do we get DirecTV engineering to take a look at what's happening here?

Stuttering and audio dropouts or no audio with stuttering. Started last couple of months. My H20-100 and HR20-700 are both having this problem. Totally random. Different time of day. All kind of weather. My brother who lives 10 miles away is having the same issue. Standard Def Channel 11 WPXI is fine.

Per http://www.dbstalk.c...48&postcount=52

NYC 2/4/5/7 on D11 (99) TP#16.

NYC 9/11/13 on D11 (99) TP#20.

I have 100% signal strength here.

Interesting that PBS HD is on D11 just not turned on for us yet.

Not sure when they flipped the switch, but I'm getting thirteen HD now... finally! :) /steve

Ever since my locals in Burlington VT went HD, about a month ago,

I have a problem where the sound will buzz and cut out for about 5 seconds every now and then.

Only happens on the 4 HD locals I have available.

Any one know what is going on?

I echo above poster -- Hey Directv, what's the problem here, you gonna get this bloody stuttering fixed on NY local Fox or what. Every freakin week it's a problem -- your problem. Can you hear me -- I am now watching Charter Cable because your crap is unwatchable.

Same problem for me too. Has been going on for months now. If I tune to channel 88 or OTA it works fine so I don't see what could be so hard about getting this fixed. Does anyone even know if Directv is aware of these issues? I called them about a month ago but obviously it has done no good.

I did this last week when NBC's MPEG-4 was stuttering...and he got someone's eyeballs on it.

I'd try the same thing with this issue. Either way it's a constant on MOST of the MPEG-4 stations...as I saw this last night when I sat down to watch last Tuesday night's "Without a Trace" from Tuesday night on CBS MPEG-4.

So, I've seen the stutter on CBS/NBC/FOX....but haven't noticed if it's there on ABC...and I can honestly say I don't watch much if anything on PIX or WOR...but I'll probably start watching some PBS WNET since it's available in HD now.

I am watching the game on 398 due to the stuttering on WNYW 5. I don't know why this channel does not have the stuttering. - Hope this helps.

Yesterday's NY Giant's football game on NY Fox (Mpeg 4) broadcast was unwatchable. However, changing to channel 88, the Mpeg 2 broadcast was smooth. It seems like I have been seeing this quite a bit lately. Has anyone else had the issue? What is causing it?
Thanks,
RA

I happened to watch the Giants via OTA yesterday, on 5-1. No issues (besides the Giants' play). So, FWIW, the stuttering was apparently not present in the original feed to DirecTV. /steve

I had the same exact problem. Strange this is that channel 88 works fine, which is the same exact channel as channel 5. And the video stuttering only occurs during the game. All of the commercials play fine.

For the first time in months I was able to watch football on Fox 5 (MPEG 4) with no video stuttering today. Hopefully this is a permanent fix.

Looks like the video stuttering is back on Fox 5. I started noticing it during football over the weekend and tonight during American Idol.

American Idol two weeks in a row has had some artifacts and audio stuttering. It does not happen often but only on FOX (5).
