    CBS....please fix your signal

    Good Lord was that annoying? Even more so than their annoying little flash/hiccup thing they normally seem to have. Perhaps somebody at CBS can pull out that dusty back-up unit out of storage. Please?

    Re: CBS....please fix your signal

    I emailed them thru their website last night about this problem.
    Haven't seen a response, don't need one if they can get the signal fixed.

    Re: CBS....please fix your signal

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that had all these 'hiccups' while trying to watch March madness last night.

    Is it a CBS thing or a satellite/cable thing ? I have DirecTV and it was pretty bad.

    Try running that audio signal through a stero that auto detects what format the audio is. The audio was even worse than the picture issues.

    Re: CBS....please fix your signal

    Mine was a little choppy, but only like every 30 minutes or so and it wasn't bad. Were people completely losing the signal?

    Re: CBS....please fix your signal

    I also have Direct TV and my signal was crap. I thought it was just my dish signal, but now I am glad it was not just me. About every 20 seconds it would get choppy and sometimes the whole screen would go for a second or two.

    Re: CBS....please fix your signal

    Comcast cable in KC, I was having the occasional issue all day. Probably every 15 minutes or so. Very annoying. It appears to be more widespread than just one local network or provider, so hopefully CBS can do something about it.

    My digital signal for kcci is usually the best running of any locals running 90-100, but all day yesterday it was between 65-75 and my tv screen occasionally said aquiring signal. very annoying.
