I am having this problem only with my local CBS HD channel.
The top third of the picture seems to be pixelating in and out. It happens during shows in HD and shows not in HD.
anyone in D.C. having this problem.
I am using the h-20

For what it's worth, out here in San Diego our CBS HD is not so great either. In comparison to NBC HD & ABC HD.

I'm having the same problem. For me it's usually around the face area for some reason. Kind of odd actually.

I am in Detroit and CBS is just fine however my FOX channel has the same problem. FOX in Detroit in channel 2, not sure if that has anything to do with it. I have a tech coming out this afternoon to work on the problem however I don't think that he will be able to fix it. I suspect the problem lies with the sat transmission of Local Hd's.

Let us know what the tech says. My money isn't on the dish/receiver, but rather on the transmission of the local HD via MPEG4.

Detroit FOX hd channel.

The tech just left and had never seen this before. He would file his report with DirecTv this week on fri. He has the same setup as mine but he doesn't watch the FOX channel and would check if his channel 2 from 103 sat had the same problem. He is a tester for Directv and gets some new HD channels that the rest of us don't. He said if the problem does not get better to call back in and they would change out the rcvr anr/or the dish. He suspects that there is some kind of interferce but could not say what the problem is. We will wait and see!!!!

I seriously doubt you are the only one that problem with hd locals, they are a mess all over the nation. CBS is also the most prone to problems in Boston, though it actually has the best lip synch.

My DC CBS has the pixelization problem but my NY DNS CBS does not. Leads me to believe it is a MPEG4 issue. Lip sync problems are mainly on DC ABC.

I have had the exact same problem with CBS MPEG-4 in NYC from day one. This has never been resolved. After many years, I am very, very close to dropping Directv altogether. After all the hype, MPEG4 is becoming a dud.
