I'm again receiving WFXT-DT on 25-1, but its completely unwatchable. There are what appear to be continuous encoding breakups (you know, the typical green blocks/lines, pixelization, freezes, etc) on this channel about every 10-15 seconds on average. I know its not a reception problem since never once did my channel banner reappear (indicating my panny TU-HDS20 had lost and re-locked the signal like when I had some multipath/reception issues in another location.) I watched CSI in its entirety without a single dropout, artifact, or other oddity.
I have noticed the occassional problem which I always chalked up to an encoding glitch at the source, but they've always been mainly on WCVB-DT during HD content (not upconverted local stuff) and only very, very rarely on CBS. For example, there were lots of these "glitches" during Alias last Sunday. (Can anyone with a non-panny receiver confirm this?!) I just got the unit back after having the HW mods done to address the fan and audio dropouts, I hope I didn't get it back in worse shape than I sent it. If Fox has indeed gone back to 720p I really hope this isn't some kind of local 720p to 1080i upconvert problem in my unit...that would be a real bummer.
Anyone else seeing this or have any thoughts?
