    Anyone watching the SEC championship on CBS? I’m experiencing SEVERE pixilation issues. In and out, no sound, skipping around etc!!!!!

    Anyone else? Or is it just local?

    Richmond VA. CBS local is WTVR.


    It is soooooooo annoying. It’s almost like someone keeps hitting the skip forward button on the remote.

    I just don’t get it. I started a thread yesterday about my local FOX doing this and I thought it was the only channel. Guess I was wrong.

    I mean, could this be an equipment issue?

    Funny.....actually did one last night and took pics of the tv. I’ll post them in just a minute. I’ve only noticed it on Fox over the past 10 days or so but now that I’m watching this game on CBS now I’m noticing it on this channel as well. Not real sure if any of the others do it.

    Hmmm just don’t know then. I mean it’s not weather related so I’m not clear as to what the real problem could be.

    Those are national transponders. You're talking about local channels that are on spotbeams, so for you that's on 99s TPN 24 for your CBS station and 99s TPN 22 for your Fox station that you mentioned in the other thread.

    1. This is a comparative signal issue -- info from multiple sources is of value.
    2. Your info is obsolete - Comcast is now excellent, no complaints.
    3. Comcast's Xfinity X1 platform far exceeds anything DirecTV or Dish has yet to offer.
    4. Please remove the redundant Tapatalk reference from your posts - we know, we know!

    Not really unless you are in the same market as the TS so we can see if it's an issue that's affecting all providers that have the local Richmond affiliate. Plus cable has a completely different delivery path vs satellite, so that 5/5 signal level you have on cable is meaningless for a comparison. Besides the obvious satellite vs cable last mile difference, most cable providers bypass OTA entirely and use direct fiber feeds from the local station's studio while satellite providers get the OTA signal at the local receive facility and convert it to MPEG4 before they send it to one of the spotbeam transponders via one of their regional uplink facilities. (which could cause problems in some more fringe areas of certain DMAs, which is why I asked for the 99s signal levels)

    I take it your area hasn't been switched to their unified MPEG4 delivery system yet... Once they do, if you care about picture quality you'll notice since all 1080i channels are converted to 720p. There's also been an increase in extended widespread video outages for those systems that switched over since they are no longer relying on seperate regional headends with their own C-Band antenna farms that made outages more isolated and their cause quicker to track down and repair locally. (i.e. a few months ago a broken fiber cable in the middle of nowhere affected customers on systems that switched over in multiiple states)

    Unfortunately I don’t. Everyone has Comcast or Verizon or have cut the cord recently.
