    I'm having problems with WLUK Fox 11. During lots of programs I'm getting what I would describe as what looks like OTA pixellation. I'm not getting any problems on the other satellite delivered broadcast networks, just WLUK. It seems to have small hiccups every 15-20 minutes, and there are major dropouts every couple hours.

    The last four times that I can remember it happening:

    11/11/08 Fringe 8:00p
    11/11/08 House 7:00p
    11/9/08 Packers @ Vikings 12:00-3:00p
    11/6/08 Kitchen Nightmares 8:00p

    I checked my signal strength and I'm getting mid 90's on all transponders. This has been happening ever since WLUK HD went live on DirecTV over the summer.

    Im seeing the same thing on Fox 11 via D*, on a daily basis. Luckily for me I get my own local FOX out of Traverse City, MI via Charter QAM and its 100% issue free all the time.

    I cant record anything via QAM though, but as luck would have it once again, theres not a single show worthy of recording on FOX anyways :)

    For the record, I have contacted directv regarding Fox 11 issues. They know of no problem though..lol..So suprising isnt it? Every single HD channel they have has issues of one kind or another, but they know nothing other than the fact that they have you commited for 2 years..

    Bad digital artifacting on all HD locals yesterday. As previous poster mentioned the last half of 24 was particularly bad. Because of the problems on all HD channels earlier in the day I recorded 24 on both the HD and SD channels yesterday. The artifacting occurred on both the HD and SD channels.

    * Channel(s) affected - All HD Locals
    * Date - significant on 5/4/09, Fox channel has had issues on other days also
    * Time - from morning until late afternoon
    * Description of Issue - bad pixelization
