Is anyone else having problems with Discovery HD? (Monday, August 19, 8:50 pm EDT) I am getting a blank screen with occasional extreme pixellization. I had this a few day ago also, but thought it was just cloudiness. I really don't want to pay $7.99 for a channel if it is not up all the time.

I had the channel on at the time you mention & did not see any problems. However, I was busy & not monitoring it continuously.

Still, I haven't seen any problems on DiscHD since I got turned on Ch 9420. Incidently, even tho I'm on the "left" coast I'm getting it on 61.5.

Reports on AVS say there has been moderate pixelation on Discovery HD on C-band, which then would be passed down to E*, for the couple of days.
