In Dayton, Ohio.


First time I have had a chance to watch MNF in HD last night.


I was getting a jittering or shimmering effect. Extremely noticeable when the score box was up. The jittering was vertical.


It was there if I sent either 1080i or 480i to my TV.


BTW, I have a Hughes e86.


Anyone know what the issue is?

It must be your hardware or local problem. Check in the HDTV Locals Forum for others that might have also experienced it.

I also saw the same jittering in Oklahoma City. Am using the Sammy TS-160 and Pioneer 520.


It is very annoying and only happens during MNF.

E86 does not pass thru 720p. Even if it did, my monitor does not support it. the E86 converts 720p to 1080i.


I have not noticed this with other HiDef ABC programs.

I had the same problem a few weeks ago with KTUL in Tulsa. The engineers had not noticed it when I called. After pointing it out they watched their broadcast that night and confirmed the jitter. It turned out they needed a firmware upgrade on their HD equipment. I'd call your local affiliate and let them know what your seeing and nicely inform them that ABC has sent out upgrade notices and that maybe theirs never got done.
