    Anyone else have frequent glitches on SNY (639)? Been going on for a few weeks now, no other channels seem to be affected. My signal levels are 90+ on all transponders.

    It is significantly worse at some times rather than others. It's pretty noticable currently during Mets/Nats.

    It appears you have a isolated issue. You need to troubleshoot. Perform a System Test and check your satellite signals.

    As stated in my original post, my levels are 90+ on all transponders. System test was fine.

    Some Joker had me perform that test on another thread. All of my signal levels were also well above 90 in fact mid-to-high 90’s like 95% or higher. It’s not your television or setup. Mine does it also. The glitching is a DIRECTV Problem. I’ve had my dish aligned and fine tuned and there is no way possible it isn’t pointed right. Some of my signal strengths were even at a perfect 100%.

    That "Joker" gave you good advice. Before you can remedy a issue you must first identify it's cause and that's done via process of elimination....... check cables and connections, check satellite signals, perform a System Test, perform a BiST (Built-in Self Test).

    I watch a lot of Mets games on SNY and have been seeing pixelation and other signal problems lately. I just assumed it was the piece of junk C61K acting up.

    It’s a DIRECTV problem. The pixelation and the glitching is happening with too many other customers. Our dish’s & Cables are properly installed and screwed in tight. As matter of fact I always tighten my cables to the receiver from time to time so I know it’s not because of a loose cable.

    Watched the first few innings of the Mets-Braves game last night and there was pixelation a couple of times.
    I watched the rest of the game from replay on MLB TV and there were no issues. It’s not a broadcast problem.

    The video quality of SNY just looks awful... on both D* and DirecTV NOW. Something is up with the feed they are getting. It's got a lot of compression artifacts all over.
