Well, I switched on the set just at 9:00 for 24 and everything looked fine. As the show progressed every once in a while I would notice a very quick kind of a flash or streak across the screen down toward the bottom. Like a single "jump" maybe but just one, nothing continuous. For me it was very minor though and I was thinking that the PQ was about as good as it's ever been too. There seemed to be a little less graininess than the usual Faux Widescreen. I also noticed that the sound volume seemed to fluctuate throughout the show too and it seemed like it may have coincided somewhat with the jumps. I am pretty close to the tower as it's right up on the Skyline ridge and I'm just down below at the bottom of the West Slope/Canyon Road area. Using the Mits box. X-Files seemed fine on Sunday although those retread story lines have really pretty much run out of gas at this point :(.
Were we watching the same show? Because it most certainly was not
fine on Tuesday night. I too noticed the audio level fluctuating, but it just so happened to coincide with the switching between 4:3 and 16:9 feeds, which they did several
times throughout the first half of the show. That may be the "flash or streak across the screen down toward the bottom" of which you speakâ€¦ it should have been fairly obvious with the "FOX" logo jumping back and forth in the bottom-right corner of the frame, not to mention the loss of picture to the left and right.
I'm about 10 miles from the towers, half-way between Milwaukie and Gladstone, and my signal strength is a steady 80% at virtually all times with KPDX. I too had no problems Sunday night, but as of Tuesday, it's been nothing but problems. I'm watching Dark Angel
now, and it's the same stuff I saw through Family Guy
and Greg the Bunny
last night, same stuff on Tuesday.
Apparantly, it's just Dish 6000's - possibly Samsung SIR-T150's as well.

Here it is Thursday night and Fox is still jumpy. I've reset my 6000 just in case it was the culprit as OPB has been doing the same thing. I was really bumbed on Shape of Life the other night, I couldn't watch it more than a few seconds without breakup. No other locals are exhibiting this behavior, just Fox and OPB.
I too reset my 6000, several times, to no avail. However, I've not noticed the OPB problem, but I don't watch it that muchâ€¦ I tuned in this evening during Dark Angel
, and it appeared to be smooth w/70% steady.
Perhaps they've fixed it by now,
Edit: "â€¦most was certainlyâ€¦?!
" Uhh, yeah, fixed that.
