The ESPN Sunday Night Football game in HD on Comcast via QAM last night was great. No pixellation. Great sound and colors. Just a beautiful picture. ESPN-HD really knows how to show off HD. Good job.

DR Jax 11-04-2003 04:42 AM

Wow, the live action from ABC's MNF was fantastic last night. Incredible picture with no pixellation even with fast motion. Great job ABC! The best are getting better.

Jax_Gator 11-04-2003 12:07 PM

I had pixelation issues in the early goings of last night's game. It happened a couple of times, once being so bad it was unwatchable. There was another instance of half the screen going green, then black, then a bunch of blocks. Lasted about 10-15 seconds.

I didn't stay up much past 10:30 so I don't know if it continued throughout the game or not.

I use Comcast BTW.

I saw the same OTA. It must be the feed from the network.

pspun 11-05-2003 07:22 AM

Jerry, 24 on FOX had sound drop-outs last night. Did anyone else experience the same?

bmccrea 11-06-2003 09:34 AM

I don't know if it's just me, but I regularly experience sound drop outs on FOX, and only on Fox. For my dropouts, they last about a half second, they occur at all hours, and they repeat on a 3 to 8 minute frequency. has anyone else noticed this?

This might just be a need for a realignment of my antenna.


Gator99 11-06-2003 11:07 AM

Bill, I haven't had any noticeable audio drop offs. Anyone Else??

DR Jax 11-09-2003 04:22 AM

More bad pixellation in CBS's College game this week. It's a shame they can't get it right, but ABC and ESPN can.

jeburnett 11-09-2003 09:54 AM


I've been out of town for a couple of weeks, but when I returned and started catching up on programs via Tivo, I too noticed some FOX programs with the dropout you mentioned. For me, they weren't total sound blocks, but rather brief, significant volume reductions that occurred with a regular pattern. I was actually concerned that it might have been my Tivo, but your message gives me reason to not worry about it. With regards to FOX last night, I didn't watch any TV last night so I can't comment.

protsch 11-09-2003 02:55 PM

Okay after the last 2 weeks watching CBS games, the CBS HD NFL game on Directv is much better than the SEC game. Not sure if this is a local thing or what. I doubt it since all the rest of the CBS lineup is rock solid. I like the colors better on CBS better than the ESPN/ABC cameras. There is some pixelation on the SEC game, but like I said before, I think it is only on the fast motion close-ups. It is not bad on the NFL game. Different trucks, maybe?? Who knows?


protsch 11-09-2003 04:10 PM

The CBS NFL game is on now in HD!!

Looks just like the Directv version pretty much


DR Jax 11-09-2003 05:52 PM

ESPN-HD Sunday Night Football looks incredible. Zero pixellation. Great job ESPN! This is how football in HD should look.

Gator99 11-10-2003 06:41 PM


Oh, well, it looks like ABC (at the Game site) are having issues, but they have been working on it.

bmccrea 11-10-2003 07:11 PM

Thank God-- I thought it was just my worn-out STB.

I've seen the issues mentioned in that thread too.


Gator99 11-11-2003 06:01 PM

Well, I see ABC has dropped the ball on HD tonight, anyone want to call??

Don Landis 11-13-2003 09:34 PM


I got an extra DTS DVD for you from the HT Cruise!

cschaul 11-14-2003 04:18 AM

PBS is now listed correctly on the program guide for D*. Finally dont have to list the analog station anymore to see whats on the station. Good job to PBS for getting that working finally. Anyone know the date when PBS will be in HD??

Gator99 11-14-2003 08:17 AM

Yeah I noticed that the guide info is right on the 7-1 station, but the other subchannels don't have the guide info, and it looks like 7-1 was all over the place last night as far a signal strength was concerned anyone else notice that?

cschaul 11-16-2003 10:48 AM

Anyone else noticing the severe sound delay on CBS OTA? Its almost unwatchable..
Jerry can you try rebooting your hardware to fix the problem?


pspun 11-17-2003 11:00 AM

Jerry, are you having problems? We didn't get HD on CBS last night, and the sound had static noise very few seconds.

Gator99 11-18-2003 05:52 PM

Isn't ABC's primetime suppose to be in HD tonight, my asked and I was not sure

petergaryr 11-19-2003 04:39 PM

I am still having problems with 7-1 "stuttering". Oddly 7-2 and 7-3 are fine.

30-1 keeps waivering from 0 to 100. Has anything unusual happened to the signal recently? This used to peg at 100 on my Hughes E86.

bdraw 11-19-2003 05:02 PM

Hey I am from Tampa FL, and one of the only station we don't receive via Cable is NBC which happens to be owned by Media Gerneral.

Medial General also ownes WJWB-WB, in Jacksonville, Fla.

Is this channel available via Cable in the Jacksonville area?

Thanks for helping me out.

Gator99 11-19-2003 05:11 PM

Peter, 7-1 and the other subchannels are still jittery. I am having no problems with 30-1 - how much heat is your E86 generating, could this be the problem??

Ben, I can't speak to WB on Comcast here in Jax, but we definately get their OTA digital and HD signal. Someone else here might be able to answer that for you.

petergaryr 11-19-2003 07:50 PM

My e86 is sitting on top of my Mitsubishi HDTV, but it does run very hot. It gets quite a lot of air circulation, but is quite hot to the touch. Is that normal?

bmccrea 11-20-2003 04:24 AM


When I was having heat issues with my e86, my OTA signal strength was pegged at 100, but the picture on all ota digital stations was jittery-some stations were worse than others.


AFH 11-20-2003 05:12 AM


To answer your question, Comcast is the only cable provider here in Jax. They do not carry the hd feed of our local WB station nor the widescreen feed of the local Fox station. They do carry the hd feeds from CBS, ABC, NBC, and PBS.

petergaryr 11-20-2003 06:50 AM


How did you solve the heat problem?

Gator99 11-20-2003 07:07 AM

Fan on top, do a search on the E86 or Heat issue. Basically you can purchase a computer fan and put it on top of the unit or under the unit. Radio shack sells them.
