    Problems with WHO HD on DirecTV?

    Has anybody else been having problems with WHO's HD feed on DirecTV? Pretty much ever since they added the HD locals, WHO's feed has had issues with frame rate and A/V sync, at least on my TV. It was intermittent at first, but over the past couple of days it seems to have become almost constant.

    Sometimes it looks like it's running at about 10 frames per second (as opposed to the normal 30), and sometimes the video looks normal but is out of sync with the audio.

    Anybody else experiencing this and know if WHO and/or DirecTV are doing anything about it?

    I haven't had problems with WHO.

    I have noticed a couple of issues with KDSM, though.

    My WHO HD has been way out of sync. At first it was tolerable but now it's unwatchable. I haven't tried switching to rabbit ears backup.

    We've noticed it on and off with all the over the air channels. Absolutely drives my wife bananas. It's like watching a bad kung fu movie.

    I am having terrible issues with WHO and Fox 17 with jumpy picture and A/V synch. I called them this morning but got the equivelent of a shoulder shrug. Dolby issues causing synch problems - nothing they can do. For those Spinal Tap fans out there, the lady actually said "Doubly" a couple times

    Just letting you know that it is for sure an issue with DirecTV, and not an issue with the actual broadcasting.
