    Anyone else notice NFL games yesterday having a blurry screen and then it will focus back into HD. it happened alot for multiple games. even on the Sunday night game on NBC.

    Hope its not the TV.

    More than likely it is due to the HD encoders in your local affiliate's network. From what I remember, certain Harris encoders can't keep up with the HD encoding and temporarily go soft during screen transitions. They soon catch up with explains the behavior you describe.

    I concur. Our local affiliate had this problem, and just upgraded their encoder to a new statmux type (dont know the brand), and it eliminated that fuzzy to sharp problem.

    I've noticed this on NBC football for a couple years now. Both ND games and SNF.
