I hope someone from DirecTV is reading this forum. While I appreciate the addition of the new local channels, whatever you did to change things over when the new bird came online is not good. The compression on the Chicago local channels is now UNACCEPTABLE!!! Watching the Rose Bowl last night was HORRIBLE! I would rather jab myself in the neck with broken glass then to try and watch a football game like that again!!! I think my AT&T analog cable was better than this. As a matter of fact, I KNOW it was. Anyone else? Are they going to fix this, or are we doomed to watch the channels become more and more blocky over time?
