    I noticed this, too. Funny, because they did solve it for the past 3 weeks or so. Crazy. Maybe there's something in the Fox Network feed that makes the problem worse?

    I posted in my local section also:

    OK...wow, House on WRAZ (FOX-50 Raleigh, NC) last night was HORRIBLE...BRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIP, pop, lip synch. I was watching on my HR20-100. Did anybody else have this issue?

    It seems FOX has much more of an issue than others. I very seldom see issue on any other network.

    My wife and I see this issue on Fox mostly. We are in Western NY, Rochester area. Fox is basically the only channel that does it.

    been with D* for about 8 months now.

    I am in the Indy are and seldom if ever heard it until the last few weeks. It is very noticable on CBS (Wish TV) HD (to the point that I had to turn the local OTA broadcast) to actually watch tv. I don't watch much CBS other than football (which didnt seem to bad during the Colts game on Sunday) and Monday nights, which has been horrible the last few weeks during the shows on from 8-10.

    I will hear it occassionly on other channels (both local & national) but usually it might be once an hour at most...but the Monday CBS shows it's been 4 or 5 times in 30 mins.

    I've had to switch back to OTA on Fox in Norfolk area. I've had episodes of House and Fringe that were unwatchable on my DVR. Also had it happen during NFL games. Have the issue sometimes on CBS but not as often.

    It was fixed for the past few weeks, but it's back again. I've sent their engineer another email.

    Once the problem starts I have to unplug for at least a minute to clear it. Any programs recorded prior to unpluggging are junk. Not sure if my locals are starting it and then sacking my other HD channels. Old HD Tivo unit upstairs is problem free.

    Sounds like you have a different issue. You should start a new thread in the HD DVR Forum with more information about your equipment.

    I just started noticing this watching Monday's (11/9) House on Fox-50 Raleigh. Recorded with my DTV HR22-100. The program is barely watchable!

    On Nashville channel 5 (WTVF), CBS coverage of SEC football (Tennessee at Ole Miss) has had many (around a dozen) instances of brrriiips and pixelation this morning in just the first quarter. It's the worst channel 5 has been in quite some time.

    I'm a DirecTV customer in San Diego. My picture smears, too. Particularly during sporting events. The problem is the worst on the FOX channel 69, bad on channels 8 KFMB and 206 ESPN. DirecTV blames it on the "broadcasters" and says it's the signal they are receiving from the different channels. If this isn't fixed by the Superbowl, I'm switching to cable.

    It certainly could be a local issue. I don't see smearing on ESPN at all. What type of display do you have? How far do you set from the display? Is your edge enhancement turned off?

    If you have an LCD, that is very likey the cause.

    I have a Panasonic plasma. The DirecTV techs first told me the problem was because I did not have an HDMI cable. That didn't work. Then they told me to have the TV looked at by a Panasonic tech rep because if DirecTV felt it was an issue with the TV then they would charge me $100 for the two service calls they made. Panasonic techs analyized the TV and determined it was working fine. When I played a recording of a World Series game they all laughed and said the problem was the signal. DirecTV then sent out a "senior" tech and he looked at my picture for no more than 30 seconds and said it was the fault of the "broadcasters".

    This entire situation is rediculous. I'm switching back to cable.

    I'm sorry to hear that. However, you may wish to get a cable box hooked up prior to losing DirecTV service. It still seems to be a broadcast issue...except, I can tell you, I see no smearing on ESPN. The quality on ESPN is better on DirecTV than on my local cable. The FOX issue could definitely be a local issue. I would troubleshoot and try to do side by side comparisons prior to switching. Best of luck. :)

    Memphis just got it's PBS affiliate (WKNO ch. 10) in HD via D* last week. Last night I was watching Austin City Limits and the brrriiipp was happening about every 90 seconds or so.

    Amazingly, the Fox affiliate in New York City was virtually BRIIPP free during the WS. I haven't noticed a BRIIPP in quite a while on any channel.

    I believe I'm getting this on the Science Channel quite frequently (once every minute or so). I don't ever hear the "brrrriiip" noise though which I believe is due to everything going into my receiver. When this drop/encoder reset happens the receiver shows the sources Dolby Digital signal going away for a brief second. The result for me is audio drop out.

    Highly annoying when they are talking about something and it drops out and you miss that key piece of information. "This giant plane can lift up to <clickdropclick> pounds". :sure:
