So how are you Sac people doing as far as reception? I've noticed some occasionally glitching on 3 and 40 over the past 2 days, I first noticed the Ch. 3 glitching during the olympics, I kinda hoped it was the feed overseas.

That's kinda the drawback to locals on the sat, to me, I don't know who to blame when there's issues, if it's that way OTA, if it's a local reception issue on DTV's part (which I'm guessing is the most common cause?), or a satellite reception issue.

It'd be nice if Ch. 6 (PBS) showed up in HD some day.

I had serious audio problems about every 10 seconds during the 49ers-Eagles game on Sunday. It continued the entire game. It was unwatchable so I ended up watching a different game on NFLST.

I cannot remember the college game on CBS on Saturday but constant audio and pixelation problems. Over time, the CBS college football games seems to always have some issue but mostly audio.

I also had lots of glitches during the olympics on nbc -- mostly audio though. No PBS HD is painful -- I assume Nova is in HD so watching it in SD is just a reminder that I should pull out the antennae or get the AM21(?).

I guess I only notice the locals when football is on. :) During the Tampa Bay vs. Dallas game on Sunday on Fox 40, I could not receive the signal on the HR21. I did not check on the R15. I noticed it at roughly 12:40 and it went through 1:00pm as I periodically checked back on it. I received all the other locals.

KOVR 13 has had a case of "the studders" [or Brrrp] for most of the day.
Monday 9-10 AM was KCRA with "problems". Didn't watch "daytime" yesterday, but found myself on 13 this morning and it was horrible in the 8-11 AM. Came back to watch during the Network news to hear it still going on.
Add KXTV 10 "to the list" for this "crap" today.
"Sure wish" DirecTV would change out the encoder "someday". ;)

Hey VOS,

Tonight CBS13 has been really bad. We are unable to make any sense out of CSI:NY. Watching OTA is the only way to watch CBS these days. Speaking of CBS13, our friend Bob Hess has his own blog on their website. Bob if you are monitoring, I am really enjoying your posts! Here is the URL:

It's not just tonight. It's been this way all day.
"I wish" I could watch OTA, but that damn [300'] mountain ridge just seems to be in the way.
To give you an idea of what I can get:
Here is TVFool reported levels: Font Rectangle Parallel Screenshot Electric blue

Which comes down to these: Rectangle Font Material property Parallel Pattern

Do 13 KOVR and 10 KXTV plan to switch their newscasts to HD? I wonder how many of us watch 3 KCRA/58 KQCA just because of HD?

I don't watch a lot of network TV otherwise, haven't noticed any signal problems.

Anyone using OTA who live in the "fringes" of our DMA? I'm curious as to which antennae you are using.

CBS13 has been broadcasting the news in HD since October. Not sure about News10, but I don't typically watch their news anyway. I have completely moved away from watching KCRA news and just watch CBS13/31 for news coverage that is local.

I saw one other post in another thread, so I assume I'm not the only one having difficulty with 10 KXTV's Bucks-Kings game tonight... video and audio.

Around 7:50pm, I scanned most of the basketball game until the last 5 minutes, then watched it (it was a close game). It looked like the whole (HD) broadcast was terrible quality.

I scanned the program immediately following (Lost on 10 KXTV) - within 20 minutes the PQ and audio was fixed. I understand that more people were probably watching Lost and called to complain maybe, but still... did no one at the station or D* or watching D* call to complain?

Strange...The HD Channel 10 in San Diego was out Saturday night and Sunday too. On Sat night they opened the National ABC channel (397) to viewing while it was down, but the DVR would not let you record on it because it was seen as a channel I don't get
