The DTV tech came on Saturday. Initially, he couldn't find anything wrong. But after a closer inspection he thought that some trees might be partially blocking the signal. I got up on the roof and agreed. So for an additional fee - he moved the dish to another spot on my house.
We went in and noticed that my signal strength was up about 10 points. However, the pixelization problem was still there. (In both of my UTV units.)
He was going to report back to DTV that I must be having some type of hardware problem on both units. He agreed that some new compression schemes might be causing the problem -- but didn't know of anything like that being used.
He thinks that DTV will want to replace my UTV units with TiVO. (UGG!) One of my units has an extended protection plan thru Circuit City. Thought about having them send me a replacement -- if they still have one.
