Picture framented along with audio

11-03-2004, 03:40 PM
Hey all, i have a motorola cable box with the hdtv. On some hd channels the picture does that tileing thing and the audio cuts in and out. i mostly get this on the abc hdtv channel. It usually happens the most when im watching LOST on abc. It seems to be somethign with the signal becuase the multi channel decoding light cuts on and off also as well as the rest of the information displayed on my DA3ES, digital cinema sound/discrete 6ch amplifier. Im not sure what the problem is. can anyone help?

Same thing happens to me. Both on Comcast as well as OTA. So I belive it's ABC and not our equipment.

I am getting the same thing but not just on ABCHD. I am assuming it is more than likely a line issue, although I am not familiar with the line balance thresholds of the HD service. I have Comcast coming out here today to run a line test and possibly swap out the converter. I will keep you folks posted.
