    So, it's my first Sunday with NFL Sunday Ticket, and I'm pumped to be watching the Packers take on the 49ers.

    It's blacked out on Sunday Ticket, but available on Fox nationwide. No problem there.

    But the game is unwatchable. Blue skies, nothing happening here, but the picture is scrambling every minute or two for about 30 - 45 seconds, and it is making me crazy... I have NEVER had this issue in my 7 years with DTV, and it happens of the first day of the season when I sit down to watch the game?

    Am I alone?

    Looking good here on the my local Fox affiliate in Arkansas. Might be a problem with your Atlanta local Fox station. Can you watch Over the Air with antenna?

    No issues here in Philly - On WTXF (29) OTA and still on the NFLST channel. Really nice PQ.

    Worst case scenario you could always watch it on the Mix channel or most of the game on the RedZone Channel if you have the Max upgrade.

    Audio problems on RedZone Channel though, very annoying.

    So I'm facing an unwatchable broadcast on the HR34 - whether live or DVR-delay.

    But on the set top box in the basement, the picture is perfect.

    It looks like the HR34 is having some issues. Don't want to reboot until after this miserable game ends...just watching in the basement.

    Then I think the 49ers (and me) will hope for about 18 more miserable games!

    I noticed some strange issues on and off on my HR34 with the games yesterday. There were a few times when changing channels I had a black screen for 5-10 seconds before the game came on. Not sure what the problem was. I didn't test on any other receivers so I don't know if it was the HR34 or something with the feed or my signal.

    I really don't know what was going on.

    The picture on the set linked to the HR34 was unwatchable, breaking up and freezing, then acting normal for two or three minutes.

    Downstairs, on the H21 (could be the wrong model) fed off of the HR34, the picture was perfect - although the Packers certainly weren't.

    When the game was officially over, I went upstairs and did a RBR on the 34.

    No problems since.
