    No, I do not work for DIRECTV .. I do have some good contacts, though :)

    As for what was wrong .. :shrug: .. I'm merely a facilitator in this. They only tell me so much ..

    Either way, thanks for the info. Everything is working great now! Maybe Directv should hire you as a contractor. Call you there Forum Facilitator.

    This is occurring again. Noticed first on on Ch12 WTLV (today show) so I then tried CH30 WAWS (I can pick this one up OTA no issues) same thing. Artifacting (is that a word?), sound popping, the receiver goes in and out of Dolby Digital and the picture actually froze for a few seconds once.

    Here are the sig strength for 103

    103(s)
    0 0 0 95 83 79 NA NA
    NA NA NA NA NA NA 89 67
    0 98 0 76 0 0 88 0
    na na na na na na na na

    103(c)
    95 95 93 92 93 89 88 89
    92 89 88 92 88 90 na na

    I, too noticed it this morning on the Today show. had to switch to SD. I was hoping it was the cloud cover this morning. I haven't checked anything else (work all day). I'll see tonight during primetime if it is still happening.

    I haven't checked my signal strength...I will if i have problems tonight after the kiddos go to bed.

    Audio stutter and pixellation are back on all HD locals to the point that as of this writing channel 25 (ABC) has been replaced with a banner from DIRECTV indicating that you should watch the programming on the corresponding national ABC feed which they have turned on. Unfortunately, they haven't turned on all the national feeds until they fix the problem. This is getting really frustrating.

    I am experiencing the same problem in the 32225 (Jacksonville, FL) zip code. It was a real struggle to watch the football games last weekend. Then on Monday I reported the problem on the Directv tech forum. Later that evening the problem was corrected. Reception was excellent for about 48 hours, then last night the dreaded pixelation returned. The original problem was reported to be with the Directv local receive facility where the local station broadcasts are received via OTAs then processed prior to transmitting the signals to the Directv uplink facility. Apparently, the first fix was just a band-aid that is no longer working. Here's hoping we all get our original great reception back quickly.

    All I know is the better get it fixed by Saturday I don't want to stuck watching Notre Lame and Mich State. One the reasons I came back to DirectV from Dish was for the Jax locals in HD. If is not fixed I am going call and raise hell and try and get them to give me Gameplan so I can watch the Canes.

    This isn't fixed for me. Pixelation, audio stuttering and dropouts on all HD locals. Comcast QAM is fine. This has been going on for the past week for me.

    I haven't noticed any problems the past couple of days.

    The service tech came out today and said my dish alignment was perfect. He was aware of the "software" problem with Jacksonville HD locals. Funny that this guy knows about the problem, but customer service reps at directv's 800 number have no clue. Basically, they scheduled him to come out for no reason.

    This better not be a problem tomorrow at 3:30 for the football game.

    Well hopefully they got it fixed. I will be extremely pissed if I can't watch the Canes game or if does the same crap as USC/Ohio Taint.

    everything seems fine today. a little pixelation on the ryder cup HD, but i attribute that to the heavy rains. nothing bad at all.
    are the local HDs working for everyone else?

    My NBC 12 is out with a banner stating they are aware of the problem. My 12-1 over OTA via the AM-21 is severely dropping out and pixelated, despite the OTA signal strength hovering around 83, with no dropping below 75.

    The receiver is the the HR21-700.

    I have noticed the white pixelization on the HD locals over the last day or two. It seems to be worse when transistioning to commercials, but sometimes I've seen it in the middle of a scene, as if there is a glitch in the signal.

    I am in 32258.

    Later,

    I only care about ABC today from 3:30 till about 7:00 but this is ridiculous it is like we are asking for something that we shouldn't be getting. Get it fixed D*

    Norm, I corrected you in the quote above :) just kidding

    But you are right, this is ridiculous. I just noticed that NBC is out with the message that they are aware of it...blah blah blah. I'm going to record my game on the SD feed, just in case. Yuck!

    Also, why doesnt directv have channel 4 in HD? It is available in HD over the air.

    D*: get with the program!

    I love that the HD worked all summer just fine, but when Football and the Fall TV season starts, everything goes to hell.

    ridiculous.

    So far today everything looks good. Just need to make it through the Florida/Tennessee game. After that my next game is not dependent upon local channels. :)

    The gator game was fine on CBS 47 - and later, on as well. Big pixelation problems however on NBC 12. No audio dropping, but serious picture issues during SNL. Any thoughts on how and when they will fix this?
