Has anyone else had problems with this channel today. It's been mostly dark all day, all the other channels are working fine.

I watched Brit Hume at 6 without incident. Did a quick check and Shep Smith is showing just fine.

That annoying right-hand sidebar was gone from Special Report with Brett Beyer tonight. Let's hope it stays gone.

Couldn't agree more! Fox has the most annoying sidebar. Because they have a side bar in their normal programming you get a double sidebar in HD that is soooo stupid .

Maybe they were sensitive to our comments about the side boxes (especially the double boxes on some shows). The whole evening was bar-free!! Daytime shows still have them so obviously they are stuck on this idea... most likely because most of their signal sources and ENG stuff is 4:3. Still, it's an improvement... I'll take it.

I've noticed the sidebar's been gone from their primetime programming for several diays now... but during the late night repeats of the same shows, the sidebar is back.

I had a problem with just 1 channel pixelating, it was odd because it would only do it on 1 of my receivers, not both a quick reboot solved it....

Turns out the problem was with multiple HD channels experiencing problems. Had D* out and it was determined that an LNB was bad but instead of replacing it they just took down the old school 5LNB dish I had and replaced it with the newer Slimline. Absolutely no problems since.
