    Is seems that I'm the only one that have problem with ESPN. Constanta jerkiness of the picture and sound is absolutely annoying and it's been like this for months (since transition to mpg4). Did people just give up since I don't see any complains?

    Can't say that I've noticed any problems myself, and I was watching earlier today.

    I watch ESPN frequently, especially during college football, can honestly say I have not had, or seen, a problem.

    Yes, it is there. People complained, but you always have somebody saying that they do not see it. I guess they must be blind. We just got tired and watch overcompressed Mpeg2 feed. However I am pretty sure that engineering as aware of this and hopefully will fix it soon.

    I have very good eyesight:). Maybe there are certain combinations of equipment that could be causing this problem for some folks.

    I have noticed that ESPNHD will have an audio skip or a "jerk" in the picture once every few minutes. I don't have this problem with other channels. It is annoying and seems to effect any ESPN broadcast. Anyone else notice it?

    I see a periodic jump in the video (especially noticeable in the crawl) on ESPN but the audio is fine.
    I see it on 3 TVs/receivers so I figure that it's their problem.
    Well, my problem too since I get to be aggravated by it. :lol:

    Have not noticed any other networks/channels with this problem.

    I don't see it on ESPN because I watch the MPEG-2 version from habit. I've been selecting that channel since the HD Pack came out a couple of years ago.

    I have been having a stuttering problem on ESPN for the last couple weeks. We checked all the cables, and low and behold, where the cable hooks into the little black boxes, it was very loose on both of them. Tightened them up, and (fingers crossed) the problem seems to have resolved. I hope that's all it was.

    I'm noticing some audio and picture glitches tonight...especially during their studio show between bowl games. Watching on 206 HD.
