    Yeah I had the same issues and it was only Fox having the trouble and even more so if I watched the SD feed it was fine.
    I was pretty dang close to calling WRAZ and telling them to get on their crap but I guess with it being HD issue only it was probably a DirecTV problem...

    Who do we need to contact? I would think that at least 1 of the engineers watched the HD feed on DirecTV...any ideas?

    I'm having problems receiving OTA channel 4.1 in the Raleigh area. This would be the primary HD channel for WUNC. I am using a HR22 w/AM21 and all other local channels are coming in with 95-100% signal strength. I can get channels 4.2, 4.3, and 4.4 without problem and 100% signal strength. When tuned to 4.1 I receive the following message...

    Searching for signal on the off-air tuner (771)

    In the setup, signal strength is 0, but yet 4.2 - 4.4 is 100%

    I called DirecTV Technical Support and after that telephone call, I'm about ready to drop DirecTV. It used to work, but hasn't worked now for a few months and I've just been living with it.

    I've tried resetting the receiver multiple times. But nothing I've done has brought back 4.1 (WUNC-HD)

    Anyone have any ideas? Anyone with an AM21 successfully receiving 4.1 WUNC-HD?

    Seems like every evening during the nightly news the audio breakups are making channel unwatchable, switch to OTA and do not see same audio breakups, however seems to now be a constant issue on local NBC17.

    I haven't watched much of NBC17 in the past few weeks because everything has been in repeats. However, I did tune across it this evening at 5:30 and heard the audio glitches you were mentioning. I emailed NBC17 engineering and got a message back that he emailed DirecTV this evening to look into the issue. Hopefully, it will be resolved shortly.

    Getting frequent audio dropouts and occasional video glitches on FOX Channel 50... no weather problems.

    Update: It doesn't occur on digital cable.

    You're not the only one. Fox50 engineering is aware and has been on contact with DirecTV. Been going on for days...

    Just to follow up: Problem appears to be corrected by 6pm this evening. I watched for about 20 minutes and didn't hear a single dropout. Fox50 engineering said that DirecTV made some changes late this afternoon.

    Keep you fingers crossed.

    Channel(s) affected - WNCN (HD) 17
    Date - May 20, 2012
    Time - 5:45 PM+ (currently 6:04 PM)
    Description of Issue - Sound is very choppy on the HD channel. NBC network content was on before 6:00 PM and now the local news is on. Both programs had really choppy audio. Turning off Dolby Digital had no effect.

    The problem with WNCN (HD) 17 seems fixed now. I tuned to it at 9 PM and the sound was normal again.
