    I'm on Dish Network and the HD feed of CBS (KGAN Cedar Rapids) keeps flickering and going black.

    Standard def works fine, but looks like crap (obviously)

    Anyone else having issues tonight watching the games?

    Its looked rather... jittery to me. not losing video, but almost like getting a little bit of lag in online video. (This is both with mediacom and on OTA)

    I'm on KGAN too and having the same problems. It only seems to come from the network feed out of St. Louis. When they go back to the studio it seems ok.

    Yeah, commercials work, but not the game.

    It would flicker occasionally throughout the entire march madness, but tonight I get complete blackness.

    My KGAN on Dish is doing the exact same thing...its very frustrating. I actually just pulled my old antenna out of the closet and hooked it up and I'm pulling in 2.1 without any issues. There's some problem with KGAN's HD feed to Dish....glad to know i'm not the only one with that problem.

    DirecTV in Iowa City having no problems. HD, not choppy or pixelated or anything.

    Seems to be working perfect now *fingers crossed*

    Just in time for UNI game, good deal. Didn't really care for the games that just got done. :)

    Yes. It's flickering black occasionally and when it's not, it is pixelating a lot. Don't know if it's CBS feed, my local affiliate (KGAN - CR) or Dish problem.
