AVS Top Picks
Is anyone else experiencing moments where the audio will cut off without the video glitching? It happens on every live channel I watch and has been like this for about a week now. The audio dropouts happen every 4-5 minutes I'd say. Last night was quite bad and it peaked around 1am. The glitching was so severe it was almost laughable! Granted, if I were not paying $208 a month it would have been a lot funnier. The entire screen was pixelated and the audio sounded like something from another planet. Only a reboot would fix it.
Are you sure that isn't just standard Time Warner quality?
Sorry couldn't resist... that is pretty bad. If it isn't an issue more people are seeing I imagine a service call would be needed.
That's a crazy price by the way, close to double my Fios triple play, which includes the Ultimate tv package
By the way, the "vibration" issue you were having on WSTM -- I suspect this is an artifact of the resize to 720p. Most displays won't have an issue with it due to the way they upscale the image to fill 1920x1080 pixels.
If you look at the transport stream on your computer with no processing/deinterlacing (for example in VLC) you will clearly see the image bouncing up and down slightly every other frame, especially when there is a news scroller with a static image next to it.
You can see it just from looking at any 2 consecutive frames of the transport stream as well.
Here are 2 consecutive frames as an example:
Download each picture and step back and forth between them (or open them in 2 browser tabs and step back and forth).
You can really see the effect on the china towne logo.
Seems like your display is unfortunately one of the few that has an issue with this

This is exactly what I'm seeing. For everyone else, take note of everything but the scrolling ticker. Both of my Panasonic plasma sets(one a 2012, the other a 2009) show the same vibration.
Unfortunately it seems to be very limited -- I know some parts of Fayetteville, Dewitt, East Syracuse, Cicero, and Baldwinsville have it, but only on certain streets with utility pole access or some newer developments.
Nice job with the gif, I did not have any software to do that!

"Standard" Cable package - (Channels 2-13)
Does anyone know where I can find a current listing of digital channels I should be able to receive via my QAM tuner with just the standard cable package? I have the coax cable feeding right into the TV. Channels seem to move around on me and I get different things every month when I do a digital channel scan. WKTVHD 2.1 no longer comes in. I do still get other local HD stations such as 33.1 (FOXHD) and 20.1 (WUTRHD). I called TimeWarner support and they didn't even know what a QAM tuner was and didn't think it was possible for me to get any digital stations without their set top box. So, they are more clueless than me and I am turning to the experts here now! :)
Also saw video glitches during The Amazing Race last night.
