Anyone else noticing the audio cutting in and out rapidly? I've noticed it for a few days...

Yet another reason not to watch FOX here in LA (enormous bright logo being #1).

I called KTTV today and spoke to Pat Jones in engineering. I asked her about the audio problem of late. She put me on hold while she checked to see if they were doing any work “up there.†She came back on the line and asked if it was only during prime time. I said yes and that other LA viewers in my HDTV internet fourm noticed this also. She said, “We’re going to put a call up there to see what’s going on. Thank you for calling about that. We had no idea about [the problem.â€]

As for the obnoxious logos she said she’d have them removed immediately. (Wouldn’t that be nice!)

Hmm, 8:15 P.M. and neither problem resolved. It's just unwatchable audio and video being unsatisfactory, otherwise I would like to watch Fox programs.

Audio also a problem here too. I also notice the blinking bits at the top (it is similar to what I would see on a SD non-overscanned feed). I expect this problem will actually go away when they start doing some real HD.

Maybe it would go away if they hired some competent techs and operations managers?

A problem goes on for days and..."they had no idea" ???

They display a huge, bright local logo opposite the networks FOX bug. Ignoring many emails and letters from viewers complaining about it.

Looks like stupidity is contagious..as now KTLA/WB does the same thing.
