    Is anyone else in the triangle area that recieves 17, 11, 5 as local channels, seeing the picture freeze at random intervals? It's been doing it recently, but is really bad today. The race is starting and stopping real bad on 17.

    This seems to be a "global" issue. A lot of post on the issue. Rochester NY same problem but seems to be only on NBC.

    I'm having the same thing on NBC only in Asheville, NC. Watched ABC with no problem, but NBC is freezing all over the place! Is this normal? Anybody have any ideas what might be going on?

    I didn't seem to have a problem with it today (WCNC in Charlotte), but I did notice the race switched over to standard definition for a while today, maybe your affilliate left it on HD, and that feed from NBC had the problem.

    The same thing happened for the first night of the olympics, and my affiliate did not switch to SD.

    I'm watching the SD feed. I can't get the HD channels locally through the receiver or OTA. Anyone else have problems with NBC freezing? I was going to call directv tonight, but if it's a problem that more people are having I'll wait and see what happens watching tonight before I call them.

    I'm having freezing on local networks, mainly NBC, here in St. Louis. I ordered the free DVR because I assumed it was the Hard drive on the tivo.

    This has been happening in the Milwaukee area for about the last three weeks.

    I watched the 500 in HD here in Raleigh and I did not notice the problems. Sounds like it is more of the same issue with the locals. Either Something in NBC's signal chain is not getting along with DirecTV's compression or DirecTV has changed something to cause the problem.
