    I set my HR24-500 to record the World Series broadcast tonight on our local Fox station. Started watching the game about 30 minutes ago and it seems like the picture is really have a lot of choppiness and pixelating. The audio seems just fine. I am recording via my DTV broadcast, not my OTA station. Seems like the issue is happening during the commercials, too. All my other stations seem to be just fine.

    Anyone else experiencing this issue tonight?

    It's not your station. The problem is with FOX.

    Seems ok here when I've watched (mainly listening), except for the errors on the field. Where are you located?

    Our Fox station is WYZZ out of Peoria-Bloomington, IL. Usually pretty decent signal.

    I am caught up to the top of the 2nd inning... hopefully the issue gets fixed soon.

    Well crap... just got the "No Need To Call Us" blue screen. At the 1:20 mark. Of all the broadcasts to have fail... what a bummer.

    Yep... totally crazy that it is still jacked up. I found an old RCA powered indoor antenna and hooked it up to my bedroom HR20, which is allowing me to pull in the Springfield, Illinois Fox station. Fox 55 out of Springfield seems to be a little better than the local Fox 43 station that DTV is rebroadcasting.

    (Not to be confused with a different DTV/Fox current issue) but who is responsible for the WS video problems? Fox or DTV?

    It's been great on Fox 4 here near Dallas on DirecTV.

    Looks like we need to update the topic title to "WS Game 7 picture issues "...
