The Houston HD locals 2/11/13/26 are breaking up badly right now but are consistently broken (not like rain fade). They were fine couple hours ago when I last checked. 20/39 seem ok. Never seen this before. They're fine in SD or local over the air antenna. D* up-link problem? Conus channels seem fine.

I know it's been about an hour since your post, but I have no problems on any of the Houston channels you mentioned. It is rare that they break up here in west Houston/Katy area. If your're/been having chronic problems, it may be that your equip/dish alignment needs to be checked out.

The NFL game on channel 2 KPRC is breaking up horribly tonight. I just went about 5 minutes with no audio whatsoever and I rarely go 1 minute without an audio dropout.

I'm having the exact same audio issue. I thought it was a problem with my receiver since it's been giving me issues lately, but I guess it's a more widespread issue. I noticed the same audio issues on NBC during some of the preseason games.

I saw it as well. It's been bad all game, but at about the 3:30 minute mark of the 1st period, it went out completely and stayed out until the beginning of the secdond qtr.

Thanks,
Rich

same here with Channel 2 audio dropout. There are actually a few posts on the thread about Audio Droputs with Channel 2. May be a long season watching the Sunday night games

Same issues with channel 2 here. It has been this way for quite a while, although earlier tonight was about as bad as it has been.

Does anybody in Houston use an AM21? I am using an AM21 and cannot get 11-KHOU on it.

Audio has been much better for me in the 2nd half.
