by the way... just tuned in to check on Showtime HD west, and it still has problems. It is very noticable with this boxing match that is now on. When the fighters start pounding each other good, it starts to stutter a little bit, then pixelate a little. Not as bad as Rave though. I can't believe some of you folks aren't noticing how VOOM has gone down hill in the past few weeks???

Jay,

I haven't noticed any of the problems that you have noted.

What part of the country are you in? Just curious if location has anything to do with it.

I'm in California. So you don't see Rave Stuttering right now? It is really bad, and even goes out of sync with the audio, just like SHowHDwest did the other day.

Some stuttering? It is almost unwatchable! And I'm on the east coast, so it isn't a localized problem.

I'm in the Chicago area and Rave was unwatchable yesterday around 6:00 PM CST. The picture and sound cut in and out every second. Later in the evening it was back to normal.

I guess it's a good thing my projector is out of commission for 2 weeks so I don't have to watch this stuff, hopefully it will be fixed by the time I get it back.

I just got VOOM and one of the things I have noticed is that all of the 'West' HD channels look very poor compared to the others. Is there a reason for this?

Yeah I noticed that too. It seems all all the HD west stations are slightly worse than their east coast counterpart. The reason for being I bet has a lot to do with bandwith issues. I just simply don't thik VOOM can hold all these channels they currently have without down grading the picture quality. I'm telling you guys, before we got ENcoreHD, and PlayboyHD the pq was better. I didn't experience all these artifacts, and bad stutters/frame drops that I am now. I

I watched Rave from 2pm-3pm pst today and had no problems with the reception. Also have not had any problems with Sho W HD all this time, but do have problems with sd HLN which often is unwatchable.
