I saw the thread about us losing some of our local HD feeds next month, but I don't think what I'm about to ask has to do with that.

For the past week or so my NY HD locals have been cutting out roughly between midnight and 1 am. Sometimes it's just a few of them, sometimes it's all of them. Sometimes I will just get a blank screen and other times there will be a message on screen saying there is a problem that they are aware of and that they are working on it. This happens on both HD feeds, but when I activate my SD locals, they work fine.

I'm just curious if anyone else has been experiencing this problem. I called customer service and they had no clue what was going on (that's always reassuring).

I get the DNS NYC stations and I have noticed that WCBS (80) and WNBC (82) do this, starts about 11:40ish. I've been recording the late night talk shows and on playback there is the problem screen. Since those shows aren't in HD, I'm now recording the SD versions from 380 amd 382.

I suspect that DirecTV is doing some testing at this time.

It has been doing it off and on for several weeks now.

Could someone post a screen capture of this message?

Then we can all copy and paste it into an email to DirecTV.
