    Is anyone else having problems with HD locals in the St. Louis area? All my HD locals are badly pixelized and choppy. It all started about 7:20 pm local time.

    Anyone else having problems with the HD version of the following local St. Louis stations: Fox (channel 2); CBS (channel 4); and NBC (channel 5)?

    Unwatchable with break-ups on HD channels, NOT the SD counterpart. All other HD channels are ok (unaffected).

    This is occurring on both the H20 and HR20. Checked the cable connections to the multi-switch and everything is tight.

    Thoughts?

    Wow, three posts within two minutes!! At least, we're not crazy. BTW, a full reset (pull power plug) didn't fix.

    I'm having the same problem - thought my dish blew out of alignment. Glad it's not just me.

    Same problem in University City. It's gotten a little bit better now at 8:23, but still happening on Fox, NBC, and ABC. I'm glad I checked, as I was ready to climb the garage and see if anything was blocking the dish.

    Does the fact I can't get STL locals count? Stuck with CT locals.

    I missed it. But, I guess they did. When I got home tonight. I had a couple of message's from friends that have Directv and wanted to know what was going on. They were missing woman's volleyball. :mad: :lol:

    It seems that it is fixed now.

    FWIW, it happened to me too. Fixed itself by 8:30 or so. Wife was not happy about missing Olympics though!
