    ABC HD question-Blurry

    Anyone else notice that when ABC is broadcasting in HD the picture usually starts out blurry for the first few seconds. I assume it's not my TV since it happens on both my hd TV's.

    It doesn't always happen and it's always during the game not the HD commercials. Must be something wiht their cameras.

    Re: ABC HD question-Blurry

    It's like that all the time on ABC HD for Saturday night football, at least it always has been this season.

    On a side note, I'm really impressed with DirecTV's local HDs - I really expected to be able to notice a major drop-off from the OTA quality.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    I agree and I have a pretty large screen where you can tell the difference if it's there.

    Re: ABC HD question-Blurry

    I've noticed it both OTA and with DirecTV. Must be something going on at WOI.

    Re: ABC HD question-Blurry

    yea I have the same issues. Bugs the crap outta me.

    I also am sick of watching local news cut in to scroll something at the bottom of the screen and cut my HD signal into Analog for 5 or 6 scrolls about stuff. This morning CBS wanted to let me know teen kids news would be seen next week, then CBS all evening keeps cutting in about the double murder info. then ABC tonight cut in to let me know the news would be on after the game.

    Does this happen everywhere or is just that the locals in DSM haven't bothered to upgrade their equipment yet? Any of you in bigger markets not lose HD when the local news cuts in?

    Re: ABC HD question-Blurry

    I've noticed it ever since I went to HD... usually on ABC and CBS.

    Its almost like some kind of auto focus just kicks in late.

    Just spent a couple of minutes google searching and couldn't find anything.

    Re: ABC HD question-Blurry

    I think it has something to do with compression. It usually happens when there's a lot going on in the picture. A large crowd shot or something like that. I think it's just the compression codec having trouble handling all of the information in the picture. Whether that's a problem on ABC's end or WOI's, I'm not sure.

    Re: ABC HD question-Blurry

    I can't say I've noticed that, but now I'll start paying attention the next time I watch something on ABC HD. Hmmm... not sure when that will be since football is over except for bowls... I'll probably forget by then.

    On another, certainly unrelated note, I used to have a problem watching golf on CBS HD in the summer. It seemed like one of their cameras was a little blurry, but it didn't get better after a few seconds. They would show a nice clear aerial shot, then the camera would switch to a ground shot behind the golfer at the tee box and it was all blurry. Then the golfer would tee off and as soon as it switched to an overhead camera to follow the drive, it was clear again. Not sure what the deal was with that, and I'm sure it's unrelated to your ABC problem.
