This isn't new. MLB.tv has blacked out Reds games in the Upstate SC for as long as I can remember. I believe that finally changed last year. Apparently, we are a part of their market somehow. And I...

It only happens on the Shield afaik. I've used several other Netflix devices on the Vizio with no issues. I have no clue what causes it and it doesn't happen 100% of the time.

You can contact support as mentioned in the previous post. However, they are likely to blame it on the Shield. As I posted a few days ago, I still get the issue on 3.0.14.0 so it clearly hasn't been...

The high pitched noise fast forwarding on Netflix with the NVidia Shield still isn't fixed in 3.0.14.0. I'm not sure why it is listed as fixed in the previous version.

They still don't compress any of the other locals (just WHNS). That is why it doesn't make any sense why they are picking one channel to compress. Considering they are all-digital, there is no way it...

The problem is only on Charter as they are compressing it poorly. Watching the grass during the Super Bowl is likely to give people seizures do to the poor compression they are using.

WHNS on Charter has somehow gotten even worse than even a few weeks ago. Watching the Panthers game now, and even the text on the screen is hard to read. I can't believe WHNS let's Charter ruin Fox's...

It is a Charter problem only apparently. For instance, a typical 30 minute show use to take about 3GB of space. Now it takes about 2.5. But the worst part is the compression is broken. It has a...

Based on my WHNS recordings, it seems Charter has dropped the quality almost 20% based on the file sizes I am seeing. Not only that, but what ever they are using to re-encode the files is garbage. It...

Has anyone noticed for the last few weeks WHNS (Fox) 712 on Charter is constantly switching between blurry and sharp every second? I am seeing this on all primetime programming. It is especially...

Make sure you aren't using the coax pass-thru on the tuning adapter. You have to use a splitter before the tuning adapter and don't use the coax out of the adapter. Those adapters will cause serious...

The channel was still in SD this weekend as well. I don't have a lot of confidence Charter will ever fix this.

I reported it a few weeks ago. They said there is no problem. There is no way to actually report this locally unfortunately. My guess is they will not fix it this season.

It looks like Charter has moved CBS Sports Network to the "Digi Tier 1" tier. Last year they moved MLB Network there from Digi Tier 2 as well. It seems they are splitting up the sports channels into...

We do know she is originally from near Omaha. That is highly likely the reason Jimmy is there. If he is with her or if she is alive is another question.

Hasn't their been a cameo in every single episode this season? Granted not all of them are the most well known characters. But there may be a bigger cameo this week like Gus.

There is a reason. Those affiliates charge extra to carry the HD channel. I'm surprised they even have a contract to still carry the SD version. Most affiliates require both in their contracts now.
