It is until the data stream and refresh all the pixels on the screen.

I notice it even on the Tonight Show.

It seems to happen when a station (OTA) has subchannels and broadcasts 1080i.

On CSNBA it's probably because of bit starving.

CSNBA HD sometimes looks great and sometimes looks awful (Sunday's and Monday's Giants games both looked awful). It's got to be a difference in bit rate. I've written to Dish Network about this but have yet to receive an answer. I will post their response if I get anything worth posting.

Heard back from Dish. They acknowledged the problem and indicated it's software related. They also indicated that they are actively working on a resolution. This seems a bit vague but would seem to indicate that it's something other than the channel being bit starved due to bandwidth limitations.

No, it IS the bit-starving... the solution is to increase bandwidth or more likely try to improve the decoders so it isn't AS poor.

Don't expect this to go away anytime soon though.

It's looked much better for the last two Giants games. Not quite perfect but the very obvious blocking/bluriness during fast motion (particularly the fast moving Comcast graphics) seems to be nearly gone. Hope it lasts and gets even better.
