What is not clear is whether PBS has acknowledged the video issues, and whether they have plans to fix it. Any comments?
I also experienced the crushed blacks in the early episodes of last season (2015). My method of reception was from OTA recorded on a Tivo Romeo.

Just to make it watchable, I'd change the gamma on my TV to lighten up the lower levels.

Seems that they got it mostly worked out after a few episodes. Not sure what was going on.
