    I live in Charlotte, NC, and my channels 1120(local NBC) and 1112(local) break up soo bad sometimes. Is there anyone in Charlotte that's had the same problem.
    This has been going on about a year now.
    Ive had several techs out and they don't know why it does this either.

    Thanks,

    Randall

    Are those cable channels (i.e., locals picked up and re-sent by the cable company)?

    Which cable company?

    You probably have a signal strength problem. Check the signal strength on those channels. If it is low, you may need the cable company to come fix it and/or you MIGHT be able to add your own amplifier (if for some reason the cable company can't fix it or you already have too many splits) that will help the problem.

    Those are local channels sent by Time Warner Cable.

    Signal strength is 95 to 100.

    It affects all 3 series 3's I have. I have not noticed it on the premeire, but I don't use that one as much. It basically extra for shows I want to record in case the others have conflicts.

    I bought a new premeire so I could get the antenna for free(BestBuy) so I could get NBC.
