    I'm getting the same thing on DirecTV. Drop out of sound, jumpy. It sucks.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Crap. Every other channel is fine. First NFL game of the season is on, and all of a sudden it's pixelated and choppy. Must be nice to charge premium price for a crappy level of service. I'm sure once game is over it'll be fine.

    Turn on the dvr and pause, let it record ahead for a minute or two and then don't skip commercials. Fixed it for us. Once we caught up to it, it started the choppiness again.

    Re: NBC Picture

    Just got off the phone with directv and they don't see any issues of course. I have had this with local NBC for weeks, already replaced one receiver, but tonight is terrible and happening on all my tvs.

    Yes, GREAT commercial.

    I have Directv and was having that issue as well. Guessing it was a local NBC problem because I don't see any talk on twitter from people around the country saying they were having issues on their local NBC channel.

    Is everyone on here that has poor signal watching WHO 13? If so it is most certainly a problem with channel 13's feed.
