I've been watching shows on Hulu instead of WPBN because of the constant stuttering and dropouts. Maybe their advertisers would be more concerned about fixing the problem.

CH29 is notoriously awful in this area [I live here] for audio blurps.

The World Cup final was nearly unwatchable Sunday. The audio dropouts seem to be getting worse instead of better for ABC and NBC.

The HD LiL issues in our DMA have become much worse in the last couple of months. Just received a report today that Directv is investigating the issue. CSRs are not supposed to schedule service calls for this issue. But they do :(

These LiL's are STILL awful. CH7 & CH9 seem to be the worst. We've got stuttering, FF/PIX, and voice sync issues. The issue seems to be mostly in the evening and at night. But I've seen it in the middle of the day also. It's really quite unwatchable, we might as well not have LiL's during primetime.

As of Dec. 2, the audio stutters and picture freezes have stopped for me and picture quality is noticeably better....especially on WPBN. Anybody else notice this?

I'll keep my eye on it. I haven't been getting as many complaints lately, so hopefully things have been remedied! :joy:
It's only been... a year and a half since this started? Gese.

Well....summer is over here in lovely Northern Michigan, as the local NBC channel WPBN begins it's yearly studder/pixel marathon...been this way for 3 years running now. Thank god the only thing I watch live on this station anymore is the weather or the Sunday night football games. Shameful....
