Re: [Cable TV] All Local HD Channels Breaking up/Pixilated

said by OldCableGuy :

Sounds like a signal problem to me, in Cedar Rapids at least the locals are all at the top end of the band (114, 115, 119) so those would show signal problems first. Probably need to have a tech out.

You suppose this could be a heat related problem with an amp a couple of poles back towards the node? Because the problem is back, starting around 5:30 tonight.

DO you see this issue at certain times during the day/night?

It was perfect today until about 5:30pm then got real pixilated. It only lasted until about 7:30-8pm, then cleared up. Channels would still "load". On Monday pm, local channels were so bad that they wouldn't load, as I would get the channel will be available shortly message. Same as Monday, local channels pixilated, other channels like ESPN, TNT, USA were OK. Here's a little food for thought: Mondays high was 104, today (Tue) 94. Tomorrows forecast: 105. If it's heat related, local HD channels should be real bad by 3pm tomorrow. No problems with HSI.

The heat can cause these issues, but usually you would see an issue with both services. When did first notice this happening?

Basically on Monday night 7/23. Don't remember about last weekend, as there's hardly anything we watch/dvr off the local/big 4 networks.

I can schedule for a tech to come out and take a look at the lines if you'd like.

Doubt it is an amp probably your drop, or a splitter, those are most likely to cause problem in the heat. Amps are quite warm to begin with so warm temperatures don't cause much issue. Not saying it's impossible just highly unlikely.
