Severe pixilation on Olympics diving (1 Viewer)

Anybody besides me getting severe central area of screen pixilation on the Olympics diving events?

I'm using an OTA rooftop antenna, an LG STB hooked via component cables to a fairly new ViewSonic projector, and I don't know if it's the signal, the STB, or the projector.

The only other times I have seen pixilation is when the OTA signal has been lost momentarily, so I'm suspecting the local signal.

I'm seeing very little pixelation, and I'm OTA as well. Are you getting the pixelation when they're in the air, or when they hit the water?

I've noticed it also watching via Comcast. I notice it while the divers are in midair with lots of twisting.

When the divers are in the air and twisting.

Last night, I was watching on an old but still good NTSC set in the bedroom, this one is not OTA, it's hoioked up to Knology analog cable, and there was a little bit of pixilation on the ladies gymnastics when they were doing tumbling runs on the floor exercises.

So apparently it's coming from my local NBC affiliate, or even the NBC feed.

I've been seeing a ton of pixalation on the local affiliate here in Dallas (OTA through an HDTiVo). Not just on diving. It's been that way from the Opening Ceremonies.

It could be my equipment because I see it on other channels as well. But it seems that the Olympics have brought out the worst of it.

I think it's an affiliate problem, because my feeds have been fine.
