    What's up with Cubs Games. Do you think it's the production company?

    It's fine over the air, and the problem also appears on other WGN programming. It's got to be a WGN-DirecTV uplink issue.

    I noticed the White Sox game last week was choppy; I thought maybe it was the camera showing the at bat but then it was all of there cameras.

    I noticed WCIU 26 and WWME 23 are broadcasting bland screens and have been for a while. All the other Chicago locals seem to be on the air on D. Wondered if anyone knew what was going on.

    Insane amounts of tiling/blocking on Chicago HD locals tonight. No other channels, just locals.

    I was watching CBS 2 in Chicago and I'm seeing very bad microblocking.

    I hope DirecTV isn't starting some bad trend, because this looks really bad!

    Even my parents, who normally wouldn't notice this, saw it and commented.

    I thought I also saw it on WGN 9.

    Any one else notice this problem?

    It's DirecTV side, because I just check 2-1 and the picture is just fine.

    DirecTV this better not be the future of DirecTV HD Video in Chicago.:mad: If I want crap like this I could go with U-Verse!

    I recorded Two and a Half Men and the picture was absolutely terrible tonight. This is the first time I have ever had a problem with the picture through DirecTV and CBS who, in my opinion usually has the best HD picture quality of any of the local networks. I did not, however, notice this on Fox as I recorded Terra Nova too. I assume this was a DirecTV issue. The image was highly compressed it seemed like. I would not even call the picture HD as it contained heavy macrblocking, banding, and lots of blur.

    They haven't fixed the problem with CBS 2 in Chicago as of this morning. It still looks terrible!

    It's not just CBS 2. I was watching the local news on WGN 9 and saw the same blocking. I switched over to the OTA 9-1 and I don't see the problem.

    DirecTV is doing something to the picture and it is really bad. Hopefully they are aware of the problem! I hope it's a problem and not a new way of compressing the signal so they can fit more channels. :nono2:

    Many people reporting this problem in Chicago. Since it's locals only, and affecting all the locals, it has to be a problem in DirecTV's Chicago Local Receive Facility, or in the link between the LRF and the satellite. That means we should expect it to be fixed soon.

    Seeing the same thing on Chicago locals here too via Directv. Horrible quality. OTA is fine.
