    They're BAAACCKKK. KUSA seemed like they had gotten this under control, but in the past week or so, the static lines have returned. Anyone else notice?

    Another quick question regarding DirecTV vs OTA: I'm seeing absolutely horrible artifacts when there's any quick movement on-screen during KUSA/NBC sports broadcasts (football is the most noticeable lately, but I was noticing them as far back as the winter Olympics). I don't notice the artifacting on any other channels (including KCNC, which also broadcasts in 1080i). Can someone with OTA comment on whether they're seeing the compression artifacts, or whether it's something happening to the signal running through DirecTV?

    Seeing really bad compression artifacts on all HD locals. Seems especially bad on KUSA and KCNC. Even relatively simple things like the local news are borderline-unwatchable.

    I couldn't imagine trying to watch a football game or anything right now.

    Yeah, it looks terrible right now. My wife called before I got home but they said they couldn't do anything about it.

    Glad I'm not alone here, but wish something like a reboot would fix it.

    I have been seeing it all night also. Must be some kind of DirecTV compression or satellite issue. :(

    KCNC has lots of audio and video breakups tonight. Watching OTA via antenna does not. DirecTV must be squeezing the bits tonight. :(

    Also on KUSA and KDVR.

    I'm seeing the same glitches on all the Denver local HD channels. Switching to the SD version doesn't show the glitches. Could there perhaps be a problem at the local uplink?

    Looks like the issue is resolved. :)

    Anyone having a problem with the lip syncing on channel 9? I have noticed it for awhile.

    Channel 20 is nearly unwatchable tonight, but all the LILs have been really bad lately.

    Denver CBS has been very blocky on HD channel the last few days. Anyone else experiencing this? The picture is fine then every few minutes it will get extremely blocky. Similar to watching an Internet stream when the bandwidth varies.

    I'm seeing the exact same thing on my recordings of the Olympic trials today on NBC (KUSA Channel 9). Just as skierbri10 describes it, the channel looks like a horribly bandwidth-limited internet stream.

    I'm wondering if the statewide fires are giving the local stations broadcast issues. Can anyone with a non-D* method of viewing the locals (either OTA or cable) chime in with what they're seeing?

    Seems fine now. Must of been an anomaly.
