Is anyone else in Wisconsin not getting the GB-SD game in HD? I'm confused... this is my OTA antenna thru DirecTV and WSAW is my CBS affiliate.

I'm getting the HD feed of GB-SD here in Green Bay OTA from WFRV. Looking pretty good too, but there is some pixelation/macroblocking every couple of minutes both with cable and OTA.

No HD for the Green Bay/SD game on WSAW. It is in SD. I'm getting the HD feed via D* Thank Goodness!
post #6 of 29
The game started out as SD in Lexington, SC...but flipped to HD about 2-5 minutes (game clock time) in...looks pretty good when everything stands still...

Indy vs Texans not in HD here in New Orleans, getting pillared 4:3. What a bunch of crap. Horrible quality 4:3 at that.

Back to Fox, where the HD games are actually shown in HD.

Watching the GB-SD game OTA with WFRV here in Green Bay. Every few minutes, the video pixelates and macroblocks. Is anyone else experiencing that or is it just here in Green Bay? It happens every couple of minutes to a degree but during the big plays (ie. touchdowns) it always happens far worse than during normal game play.

I'm watching the GB game on D* -- anyone else having the audio kick out for a second or two every 10 minutes or so?
post #10 of 29
Yup, GB/SD game on CH. 721 has intermittent audio drops......just did it
post #11 of 29
Watching the Packers-Chargers and also getting the macroblocking every couple minutes here in So. Cali. Getting occassional audio drop outs as well.
post #12 of 29
The video has been breaking up a lot during the GB/SD game. Also, I'm having the audio drop out and it sounds like it siwtches to mono. There will be times when only the center speaker and the commentators can be heard. Then, the audio will suddenly come back and I'll have surround sound again.

I just saw a Nike commercial and it showed a bunch of players running around on the feild wearing reebok jerseys. Odd.
post #14 of 29
Yes, watching here in GB ota and getting the same thing you described. I thought it may be my antenna but I'm receiving a 96 signal. BTW. anyone have the CBS scoreboard tracker cut off on the left side?
post #15 of 29

WCBS NY via Verizon FIOS. Awesome PQ. However, Dolby 5.1 kept going out. Hopefully they fix this glitch for next week's game.

Jags at Denver on WTEV-DT. Pixelation/macroblocking every couple of minutes both with cable and OTA. And our local station doesn't do 5.1
post #18 of 29
here in orlando the Jag- Bronco game is SD using OTA, no pixillation.
post #19 of 29
2nd Half of game in HD , looks great. Glad someone woke up and flipped the switch
post #20 of 29
Got Buffalo @ New England.... via DirecTV... multiple times throughout the game, my receiver would randomly go from Dolby 2.0 to Dolby 5.1 during the game... anyone else?
post #21 of 29
Jags-Broncos with many audio drops and pixelation issues on channel 722 one of the ST HD channels. Overall the PQ for the games today has been better than the last two weeks. There was quite more macroblocking going on during several of the games in the first two weeks.
post #22 of 29
Really funny. So I am watching the Browns (in SD 2 weeks in a row) game (only CBS game in SD). And during the game several time WOIO runs a crawler stating "TODAYS BROWNS GAME IS NOT BEING BROADCAST IN HD BY CBS" over and over. They must have been getting big time complaints or something. I first noticed it in the second half. Pretty funny but it still makes me mad that its two weeks in a row. Everyone should take a turn. I bet if they broadcast the Jets in SD two weeks in a row they would never hear the end of it.

Cincy/Seattle had TONS of macroblocking on both 7-1 (whio) & 12-1 (wkrc). Very bad.

Both stations have sub-channels running.

This was OTA (and checked 12-1 via directv hd locals) on a 100" screen.

Flipped over to the FOX broadcast and it wasn't showing hardly ANY macroblocking.

CBS, are you paying attention? Don't rest on your reputation of having the best quality HD sports.

It's often not random. CBS drops to 2.0 audio (sometimes by several minutes) before going to the studio for highlights of other games and then they eventually switch back to 5.1.

There was a lot of compression artifacts in PDX as well. In fact, at first I suspected our local affiliate had not shut down their subchannel like they regularly do for sporting events. But I switched over to my OTA tuner and checked and it was down... I would have to say that this was probably the worst HD sports I've seen on CBS. It did seem to be worse at the beginning of the game but even at the end it was way below par for them. But hey, the Seahawks pulled it out so that made it a little better .

Sorry, newb about this stuff. What is macroblocking and will that affect me recording the game in my TWC HD-DVR. It would stop recording every few minutes and start over recording the game. I ended up with over 30 small (2/3 mins) files of the game. I think it would do that when switching from the game to commercial and back.

What *looked* like MPEG2 compression artifcasts during bandwidth demanding portions of the content was 'very bad' on a 34" screen from those stations as well .... worse I thought from WKRC-DT ...

Interesting, Thanks for posting that. I thought it looked worse than usual during HD football from The multicasting Cincinnati/Dayton affiliates here, and was wondering if it might perhaps not entirely be "their fault" this time ...

Macroblocking is the word many folks here seem to use to describe visable artifacts that for example sometimes occur during portions of content that is difficult to encode when high compression ratios are used.

People refer to it as "macroblocking" I think, because what happens is the picture turns into "fuzzy" big blocks" with less apparent detail than an extremely poor VHS recording for short periods ...

I don't think so ...
