    The issue seems to be corrected.:)

    Whatever DirecTV did last night, it didn't work.

    I don't think they did anything last night. It was fixed late this morning.

    I was talking about whatever they tried to do last night. ie testing new software, equipment, cutting the data rate. It was a fail.

    Because, I'm always afraid these companies are looking for ways to squeeze more channels in the same bandwidth at the expense of picture quality.

    So does anyone know the specific reasoning to why CBS and WGN looked like crap? Glad its been fixed though. I haven't turned on the TV today to see, but I have more shows recording tonight. Lets hope the issue is long gone.

    WMAQ looked real bad too. But Ok today.

    Now... just need to get WCIU 26-5 on the AM-21 and I'll be happy. Who the heck needs duplicate SD programming on WYIN and WYCC subchannels. (translation: remove 20-2, 56-4 and ADD 26-5) Been waiting for 11 months now. Hopefully you'll get the fix in. Thanks.

    Anyone with a 5.1 sound system/subwoofer notice their sub producing a constant low level rumbling noise while on Channel 7 ABC?


    This is prevalent no matter what the content.
    This does not happen on other channels, nor on 7.1 OTA.

    Also only on Ch. 7, little horizontal lines periodically across the screen randomly, a few minutes or more apart.
    On all my tv's,again only on Directv ch 7.

    WGN has a new sub channel 9-3. Any chance D* will add it?

    Great... Just what we need, another sub-channel degrading the bandwidth of the main HD channel.
