    I just got back from vacation and noticed that FNC is pixelating frequently in bursts of 1 to 3 at a time, every 2 to 5 minutes. Is anyone else noticing this? It's happening on both of my receivers... one is SD, the other is HD.

    I can't tell right now. I have pixelation on all channels as a thunderstorm is rolling though. :(

    I'm with E* and I think that I have noticed this on FNCHD (I'm not sure about the SD feed)

    I am seeing this on FNCHD. There seems to be about a 1 second shimmer in the pixels, most noticable in the flesh tones. Probably a glitch in an encoder some where.

    There is some encoder problem with FNCHD. I have noticed it since Saturday, flipped over to FIOS and it was clear as a bell there. So definitely an issue with D* and the encoder. Haven't noticed it today, but haven't watched much really.

    Happens here too occasionally, I havent noticed it on any other channels I watch. But I do get the pixelation burp and sometimes no sound. I usually will channel up then back to FNCHD and its OK for awhile.

    It was pretty much continuous on all programming last night, sort of a pulsing burst of pixelization every 30 seconds or so. It got to the point where I quit watching as it was giving me a headache.

    Yep, I saw it also. It was HORRIBLE last night, but I really wasn't interested in all the Sotomayor talk anyways, so it was easy to change. But I really hope they do fix this as it is quite annoying.

    I'm a regular viewer of Special Report at 6pm EST and have noticed it for about a week. The little burst of pixelization every so often is quite distracting.

    ps - Brett B. is good, but I still miss Brit Hume. His once a week commentaries just aren't enough.

    Not only the picture problems, but last night on Hannity I noticed "voice" distortions. Really weird.

    I've started watching from 20 feet away without my glasses on. Problem solved.
