It is not a CBS problem. My provider has it together. Call Comcast and good luck.
By the way I'm watching on Cox Cable in Phoenix, AZ and the PQ looks fantastic !

Sounds like a problem with your local station. These types of problems are very rarely the providers fault, they are just passing what they receive from the station.

Call your local CBS and politely tell them others around the country are watching an HD and to pass the message along to engineering or master control.

I'm watching Memphis vs. Texas and it looks stunning here on TWC SoCal KCBS channel 2.

Did anyone notice a momentary signal disruption near the end of the first half of the Memphis-Texas game?

Yeah I had it too. It took my breath away. Was about to freak if the signal was lost.

Di di di di di di di di di di GO TIGERS GO!

Memphis, WREG, 1 sub, terrible PQ. PQ goes all blocky when there is a change of scene, and closeups of really anything. Not to mention the dreaded out of focus blur that my affiliate refuses to even address (multiple emails, no response).

Can someone please tell me why CBS can't show HD highlights of their own games when they are back in New York with Greg, Clark and Seth?

Picture looked great on Comcast. I noticed the blackout also but it was brief. I hope to be watching the last 2 games in person. Go Tigers!!
