Watching showtime this weekend, I noticed some points where the screen turn into colored boxes. Haven't seen this on E* as the few times we had rain fade, the picture just went balck with no pixelization.

Then there's the portland and apparently hte Los Angeles locals going offline.

Anyone know what's up with this???

Pixelization means two things. One is compression artifacts, and it sounds like this isn't what you are talking about. The other is the picture turning into larger, abnormal blocks. If I'm correct, it sounds like this is your problems. This can be a huge number of things, but is most likely an Echostar problem. It's a tiny, yet uncorrectable, datastream error. As for the locals, I don't get any Portland stations, and my only LA station - KTLA, is online fine as of 17:27MDT 28-May-2002. It was also fine for the time period between 21:00 and 22:00 MDT 27-May-2002 (7th Heaven last night was fine). So I don't know what to tell you about the locals.
