I have had this same problem with WRLH, when I switch to the OTA feed no problems at all. I saw it on House, Bones and Fringe last week.
All on SWMLine:
HR22-100 > HDMI > Samsung 4665 LCD [Networked]
HR20-100S > HDMI > Samsung 4665 LCD [Networked]
HR20-700 > HDMI > Insignia NS-LCD26-09 LCD [Networked]
HR21-100 > HDMI > Samsung 26B360 LCD [Networked]
Full Setup

For the last 24 hours or so, WRLH's signal has been clean and stable for me, hopefully they have resolved their problems.

The past 2 Saturdays, the SEC game has been unwatchable on WTVR-6. It looks fine via Comcast. And the SD feed is fine on D*. I hope this is resolved before tonight's LSU-Florida game.

Anybody know what going on with this channel? It has been off the air since early Sat. Have the Do Not Call Us screen from Directv and no signal over the air.

The audio drop out's continue on WTVR Channel 6. Directv tells me they do not know of any other complaints. Can everyone in Richmond with Directv please call them and report this issue? I am sure I am not the only one. This is very annoying.

Last couple of days channel 8 has had numerous audio drop outs and microblocking. Has anyone else in Richmond experienced this.

Channels affected:
NBC - WWBT (12)

Date: 7/26/2013

Time: 9:15 AM

Description of issue:
Beginning on Sunday, July 21, 2013 AM, major freezing and pixelation began to be seen only on this channel. It continued through Wednesday, July 24 but seemed to have been corrected yesterday. However, it resumed this morning, July 26 and continues as I write this. Oddly enough, it does not occur when the channel is viewed in real-time but only when it has programs recorded or if they are viewed via the buffer. This behavior has not been seen on recordings on any other channels, only those on local channel WWBT on my HR34/700 running 0x6db. I also have a HR24/500 running 0x6d8 and I will now attempt a test to see if it is also experiencing this issue (although I have not noticed it so far.)
