I think a lot of local TV stations still haven't figured out how to optimize/adjust their new digital transmitters....

CBS shows on my local affiliate have an annoying green tinge to them. It looks like everyone is sick as their face looks greenish. This occurs watching OTA in HD or in SD through DirecTV. (I haven't upgraded to DirecTV HD yet) This does not occur on the ABC, NBC, or FOX local station.

Such issues are much more obvious on a large screen HDTV but after closely examining the same channel on my 13" TV in the kitchen (hooked up to an R15) that green tinge is there too.

The funny thing is it just happens on the national programming fromcbs the florida game today and there primetime lineup every night. The engineer at the staion told me I should get a tech to come and check my setup but it is the only channel I have a problem with.
