    Has anyone else notice how bad the picture is on Channel 11? Usually the best picture I get. All other CBS stuff I get looks great (Distant Nets and ST).

    Any one know what's up?:nono2:

    I noticed the same thing during the Bama/LSU game last night. It's almost like they changed their encoder to a new sub-par model. During fast action, the encoder couldn't keep up and picture quality degraded.

    Channel 11 looks sharp here, no different than usual on both 11 and 11-1 (off air).

    I noticed it during the LSU game as well. It was pretty bad.

    It was HORRIBLE during the LSU/Bama game, and pretty bad yesterday during the Texans game.

    Out of curiosity...have any of the other BELO stations shown similar symptoms?

    It was unwatchable during LSU-Alabama and bad during the Texans game. It was fine over the air. DirecTV claimed they checked on their side and said it was a problem at KHOU.

    I agree 100%... Bama / LSU game was terrible. (Both in picture quality and outcome :-( )

    That was the first game I watched on a new TV and was worried I made a bad purchase. Glad I watched an NFL game on a different channel the next day and figured out it was channel 11.

    One big thing of interest... the set I watched on was a Panny plasma with 3D support. Watching the game in 2D was terrible... but when I switched to 3D (via 2D to 3D conversion in the TV), almost all the blockiness went away.... so at least I have an option for future games on channel 11!!

    CBS college football broadcasts have always been bad on DirecTV (macroblocking, etc) for as long as I can remember.
    NFL broadcasts are much better.
