Satellite or OTA Problems
When I went home last night, I had the same problem on all channels: freezing up and pixelization, and I got a message the receiver had lost the satellite signal. I ran through diagnostics and a reset of the HR-44, and the problem disappeared. Don't think there was any bad weather between my dish and the satellite. So I can't blame WPMI for those issues.
Now, when I was a little boy growing up in Montgomery, we had several analog UHF stations, and some residents had mind- boggling multipath problems. Try to get a UHF signal through tall pines: almost impossible. And when I lived in Birmingham, channel 42 had serious multipath issues with the surrounding mountains. Digital HD technology is light years ahead of analog UHF in dealing with multipath, and much closer to perfection compared to what we used to have to put up with.
