    Anyone else's BTN digitizing the picture and occasionally freezing up? It is really annoying. None of my other channels appear to be doing this...

    The HD clarity of my Directv is stunning.

    Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one. But it does drive me crazy. Ugh...If that happens on a big play and I'm going to throw something at the TV.

    At least you guys can see it. We are getting ESPN News and BTN commentary behind it.

    The game isn't even on my TV for some reason. I live in Cedar Rapids, you would think I would get the game. Mediacom for some reason hasn't switched over.

    Now you know the real reason why Mediacom stalled about getting the BTN--they didn't have the carrying capacity.

    The broadcast blows almost as much as our play on offense and defensive tackling.

    Mediacom is incompetent. Period.

    I so wish they would get bought or go under so someone else could give us cable service.

    I'm happy every time the signal goes bad during a political ad. All those Illinois promos are pretty annoying too.

    So is it just Mediacom? What a rip. Went to another house to watch it on widescreen, but now I'm wishing I stayed home and watched it on DirecTV.

    I have Comcast and the signal isn't very good at all.

    Blame the Big 11..I mean Big 10 Network

    I've watched the BTN a few times since Mediacom picked it up, and this is what it's looked like every time. It's not just an issue for this game.

    I am thinking maybe it is the Network. I noticed my picture sucking pretty bad too. Nothing like watching a slideshow instead of a football game.

    I'm getting some pixelation, but I'm on SD right now. It's not bad, though.
