Enough with all the clutter (graphics) on my HD screen! - Page 110

post #3271 of 3285
Was watching House of Lies Sunday and I hope this was just a joke. During a part of the show, there was a snipe basically in the middle of the screen against a black background that said House of Lies "time" and stayed up there for quite a few seconds. I was like are you kidding me and my wife goes "who does that?"

My favorite, this week, was weather related. There was a Winter Weather Warning for just about the whole state. Definitely as far as any Detroit television signal goes. Nonetheless, a couple of affiliates insisted on eating up a corner of the picture - in the 3X5 safe area no less - to display a map of the affected counties. Couldn't ya just say, "Winter Storm Warning..alla y'all."

"Y'all"? The southern Michiganders might could secede, eh? Fixin' to join up with the Hoosiers? Or the Buckeyes?

Or Windsor?

I noticed that too! I don't think I've ever seen that on House of Lies. Very odd to place it in the middle of the screen as well.

Another reason I do not watch OTA. I still get to see Revolution, but not via OTA.

Same here- I use the TiVo as a backup to record the official network feed- I don't archive from that bug infested source though wink.gif

Now here's the same scene but from an alternate feed w/o all the onscreen rubbish:

You mean this thing?



That sort of junk is the reason I quit Sho five years ago and it seems nothing really changes. Really though that is such idiotic placement it has to be an error. It looks like it should appear in the corner, but I wouldn't put it past them to be that inconsiderate.

Now that is ridiculous! In a corner, maybe, but right across the screen?? Ugh.

Watch the language, guys. This is an all-ages, races and religions board. And I hear from all factions when someone circumvents the filters by using special characters. The filters are in place for a reason. Do not try to go around them because you feel you have a need to swear. If you quote a post with offensive language in it, edit it out or you're just as likely to get an infraction. Ordinarily, we frown on editing a quote, but for this we'll make an exception wink.gif

There I was, watching the team figure skating competition at the Winter Olympics, one of the individual performances, and suddenly NBCSN put up an animated advertising for a later event, blocking the view of the feet of the performers! And guess where I was looking to see how the performer's skates hit the ice? Right at an event that didn't interest me. Grrr. :mad:
