I took a look last night and have to concur -- something weird is definitely going on. I made a recording on TiVo and it didn't even like scanning through it -- it was very slow compared to usual. I then recorded a bit of the transport stream and opened in a viewer (Telestream's "Switch") -- in the problem spots, frames were repeating many times, and this particular player regularly displayed video breakup when stepping through (see attached).Anybody else notice that for the last month or so KXTV 10 primetime ABC network shows like American Idol, Good Doctor, and Rookie are plagued with annoying motion balkiness (stop or blurred motion)?
Don't know if this is related, but last night when I looked at their stream, they were giving more bits to "Bounce" on 10.3 than they were to 10.1. Now, on Wednesday afternoon, I see that "Bounce" has been bumped down to SD at around 2.5 Mbps, while 10.1 has increased to 10.5 Mbps. Clearly they've changed encoder settings, but it remains to be seen if it will have an effect on the motion problem. I'll check the stream again tonight to see if it remains as it is now.
