I saw it too on WCAX, and had to switch to OTA. Was the Fox game ok?? I checked it a couple of times to see the score, but I was watching the red hot Buffalo Wings game ......


It seems to be only on WCAX. Right now, its studddddering very badly. I can't get OTA and hopefully they won't take away my DNS until they get the problem fixed so its not an everyday occurrence. The quality is also very low for 1080i channels.

All the locals in general seem to suffer from marginal HD quality until they switch to the national programming around 8pm. Upside, I was watching WCAX on Monday nite and did not notice a audio burp at all from 9pm - 10pm.

WCAX Choppy. Picture is VERY choppy with occasional pixelation. Currently running PGA Tour golf. Picture freezes about every 2 seconds for a brief instant. No other channels seem to be affected at this time. Have performed a RBR on the box (H20-100, I am at my parents).

Problem has expanded. All locals are choppy, pixelated, freezing up approx every 1 second. Have performed a RBR on my HR21, no effect.

"Technical issues". They are working on it. Also got a call from my parents, they thought they broke their TV. =)

Well, whatever it was, seems to be fixed this am. Wonder if some critter got into the uplink facility to stay warm and messed things up??? =)

Sticketfan,
A thread has been established to consolidate these issues for D*. It is located here: http://www.dbstalk.c...ad.php?t=152685

Did you try to redo the Antenna setup? It appears to work for some.

some rain fade yesterday, during downpours, have not seen rain like that up here in a long time. It reminded me of FL. Anyhow, the rain fade had me on 5.1 to watch some of the Players, and 5.2 to check the radar. I did notice some of what you are talking about yesterday on 5.1, but I blamed it on those downpours passing between me and Mt. Mansfield. I dont know if that can happen with OTA signals or not, but there was lightining too.

Anyone else having severe stuttering (bbbbrrrrriiipppp) problems on WFFF? Signal strength is good and I'm seeing identical glitching on two different receivers hooked to two different dishes, so I strongly suspect this is an upstream problem.

Channel: WFFF (44), HD
Time: Constant, observed last at 8pm on Tuesday and Wednesday

Locals just came back up. Dancing with the Stars is on in glorious HD, I am spacing out in front of the laptop to tune it out, the wife is happy, and peace returns to the household.......

They are NOT considered part of our market. You end up with NESN and CSNE(?). A lot of Red Sox and Bruins fans up here. To be honest I am a NHL CI sub and don't pay a lot of attention.

Depending on how big a priority these NY sports stations are, you could live across the lake in the Plattsburgh NY area and I bet that would change your market. I don't know any subs over there to confirm. there are people that live here and work there and visa versa.
