Nice picture, sound awful from the start on Giants-Redskins here OTA in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
John W: You had it better than we did here in San Diego. I watched the game on my DIRECTV LIL (Local Into Local) feed for our local San Diego NBC 39.

We had lousy sound and a pillar box display until literally the first play of the game. Remember, there was LOTS of lead-in before the game.

Then there were two or three occasions when we snapped back to pillar box for a few minutes before returning to the normal 16x9 display.

There were also times when the display was fine, but it sounded like the station was pulling and re-plugging audio jacks.

Pretty grim for the lead-off game of the season. Not very professional.

Maybe this was a community project and they had their HD control center run by an 8'th grade class?

John W.,

There is a special forum for HD Locals Problems:

go to DIRECTV Programming and Services, then
go to: HD Locals Broadcast Issues

Here you'll find that Mod Doug Brott has created threads for each DMA so that we can all contribute to tracking local affiliate problems on the DIRECTV Local-Into-Local feeds.
