I'm not saying "it's your fault", for crying out loud.
The world of digital TV is weird. Some combinations of digital signals and equipment/chipsets and software causes problems.
I once had a USB HDTV tuner that would lock up when the local Fox affiliate (WJW Ch. 8 over here) went into local breaks from the network. Another tuner I had didn't have the same problem.
There was something involved in how Fox sent down changes from 5.1 to 2.0 audio in the splicer. It affected my USB tuner and only got fixed because it was also breaking up recordings on cable DVRs.
For now, you're the only one complaining about it here, and someone else who says he has the same equipment says he has no such problem. If it were general/widespread, we'd have a half-dozen messages in here complaining about it. People who don't log on regularly would find their way here.
No matter what the origination of the problem, insulting the station and its engineers is going to get you nowhere.
Do you know, for example, that WFMJ's chief engineer has posted in this very thread? I haven't seen him in a while, but you could well be taking him to task personally. I hope that satisfies you and makes you feel good.
