Why do these channels have video Hiccups constantly? Looks like a frame is dropped occasionally. I watch these a lot, and they are DEFINITELY there! Been there a while. Used to have that 1 or 2 second blackout problem that was a problem. Now this!


Watching via DirecTV, and this is not on ANY other channels that I'm watching.


Y'all ESPN HD watchers seeing this?

Yes, I've noticed the "skipped frames" on ESPN and ABC's live sports for at least the past couple years now. I am also on D*, with an HR20.


I don't recall seeing it on Fox MLB or NFL coverage, so I don't think it's a D* 720p re-encoding thing...

For whatever reason, I just noticed this during last Monday's Vikings/Packers game, I'm guessing because MNF is really the only time I watch ESPN. Haven't noticed it in the weeks prior, but definitely see it now.


The crazy thing is, I'm not seeing this during commercial breaks. It only appears during the actual broadcast of the sporting event.


Doesn't anyone at ESPN see this or care?
