I was so excited about the MPEG4 recordings taking up less disk space but after trying a few local recordings via D* I promptly switched back to OTA locals.

I'm sure they will eventually iron out the blips but for now it's antenna only for me.

BRRRAPPPP and pixelates every 10-15 min is so annoying that I watch & record this station from OTA. I am watching the OTA and it has an audio drop at the same interval. I would rather have no audio for a second than pixelate and BRRRRrAAAPP that lasts way longer than the audio drop for OTA. Ch 15 needs to fix it. Maybe these problems could be a reason why E* doesn't carry this channel in HD. :lol:

after the direct connection from the station.

Now it looks like CBS 5 is having some minor issues. Anybody else noted the occasional pixelation and frame stuttering?

Anybody else seen on American Idol, House, maybe other Fox programming where right before credits come on at the end of the show the picture and audio would freeze for about 5-10 secs and then roll the credits? The whole show leading up to that point was good.

Anyone having issue with WPMI 15.1 over the air? The tuner in my TV picks it up fine, but
the tuners in my HR20-100 and HR10-250 HD TIVO both show searching for signal. 15 from
the satellite is working on both units. This just started happening during the 6:00 NBC news.

I'm not currently having issues with 15-1. The HR20's OTA tuner is vary sensitive to multipath, I can't remember how sensitive the hr10-250s are. I used to have some issues months ago, try turning your antenna a few degrees. Just turn it enough to such that your signal levels remain most constant, not necessary the highest.

There's a lot of Brrrp issue on Fox 10 (10/18/09) during the Saints vs Giants game. If it wasn't for the Saints offense clicking the game would be unwatchable. I wonder if there's a national Fox issue being other local areas in different DMAs are experiencing the same issue.

Same problems during the Saints/Redskins game on Fox10 via DirecTV.
