For a few months now I have had distortion on my local channels on all receivers. There are intermittent streaks across the screen that mostly affects the color. These streaks only happen on my local stations, anything below channel 100. I have three R15 receivers hooked up to a Terk BMS58 multiswitch. My signal strength is fine at over 90 percent. Any one have any ideas?

I have had the same problem and I also have an R15 and a multiswitch (not sure which one). However, it only happens on KXAS channel 5 most of the time. I just chalk it up to an odd signal thanks to all the signals running out of Cedar Hill.
