Advertisements What is going on with the Lansing locals? For the past couple of months, I've had problems with (I think) compression artifacting. Approximately every 2 seconds (57 - 60 frames) the picture flashes. When played "single frame at a time" the pixels turn dark and shift slightly for 3 frames. It's most noticeable on dark backgrounds. I noticed it first while watching football (lots of green field). It's not as apparent when the camera is following the action, but it's still there. Is this the result of cramming too many locals on one beam, or could I have a bad LNB? It only happens on the locals. I could watch Sunday ticket just fine, but channel 6 (Lansing, MI CBS) and 47 (Lansing, MI FOX) games were almost unbearable. Today, I couldn't watch ANY basketball on the local ABC or CBS stations. It wasn't just the "flashing", the signal was TERRIBLE. I watched them OTA. Signal strength on transponder 29 is 92.
