I think it's obvious there is a problem. With the locals all bets are off because they are obviously so different, we can't compare them to be honest. I personally think there is a huge combination of equipment/setup issues that determine why some people see it and some don't. Possible. If people want to get to the bottom of it those with problem need to post at a minimum the channel and the program, what time showing if there are multiples and if possible where in the program there were a brrrrrrp or two. But again with locals we can't really compare. My CBS may be terrible while yours is fine. Only true comparisons can be done with the national channels. I honestly don't post much in this thread. But when new people come to the thread and are confused that they don't see it then it helps them to know what some people don't see it or it's barely noticeable, for whatever reason. Also can help DirecTV with various data points. Many time finding the solution to a problem isn't finding out why someone has the problem but why someone else doesn't. So my latest data point. We just caught up with Dollhouse on Fox yesterday, last 5 episodes. Had no issues with the first 4, had one minor brrrrrp in the last one from Friday night in the first 10 minutes. I checked my OTA backup and it was there as well. Thus the problem was with my Fox affiliate and nothing to do with DirecTV....this time.
