    Not sure if this is the right area? Broadcasts are affected

    Lately I’ve been having more & more issues with breakup on my digital OTA feed. My D* Tivo season pass is set for the OTA .1 channels on several shows (LOST etc). It has recently become so bad I’ve had to switch my season passes over to the D* SD inferior feed (ugh). In order not to suddenly be missing whole sections of scenes and dialogue etc as the feed breaks up.

    I’ll get macroblocking type artifacts going on.. then, stutters, skips, freezes till it degenerates into a total breakup.

    Don't know if the BCers are playing around with the signal or?
    I know weather could affect Analog OTA, is this going to be a continuing issue with Dig?
    Can’t find any reason for its sudden dramatic increase.

    AVS has threads for each specific area of the country. You should check over there to see if others in your area are experiencing the same thing. Or post your area here and a local board member can help.
