I just watched what you were talking about. I'm in Tx so I get CDT feed also. Only explaination is some one at Fox hit the wrong router either via a server foul up on manually.

I watched the HD feed but I recorded the regular feed and it was fine. Just the HD one messed up, but someone online in Miami had the same thing happen so who knows what happened.

This happened to a bunch of people watching on various cable HD channels so it was definitely a FOX screw up.

Sounds like the whole country's HD broadcast got screwed up. If any advertisers ask for concessions as a result...it's gonna cost Fox. Somebody's losing their job.:eek2:

Advertisers weren't effected as it only happened for about 3-5 minutes or so at the beginning of the second hour, and not during a commercial break.

True, but the fact that 5 minutes of the show were "tainted" could cause advertisers to insist that the value of their air minutes was reduced.
