my cable has been fucking up the last 30 min or so, the picture and sound just stops for a few seconds and then the picture pixelates and then comes back. I checked multiple stations and they are all doing it. I cant get through to comcast due to heavier than normal customer calls, which is weird for 10 pm on a thursday. has anybody else having this problem in AA right now?
OT-Comcast problems tonight?
I'm in Grand Rapids and having the same problem, if it wasn't for the Slowskis i would have dumped them a long time ago.
Probably something to do with Mayans '12...
I got it as well in the Lansing area.
I'm in Warner Robins GA w Cox cable. I am watching the Wiscy game on ESPN HD. Having exact same issues.
If so, yeah, it's not only relegated to Comcast. Time Warner here does that all the time. From time to time, a channel will just completely "freeze" -- and I mean for hours on end -- while other channels work just fine. It's very strange.
I used to experience that fairly regularly with Comcast HD but over the last year it hasn't happened at all. I am, however, experiencing the black out, pixelating thing tonight. Watching faces pixelate though gives me a chance to commune with the 60s drug culture that I missed.
I was watching DirecTV, the Wiscy creampuff game, and had both video and audio issues for a while. Perhaps it was the feed. DirecTv is pretty good, but a lot can go on between the field, blasting a signal to a satellite way up there in fixed orbit and back to my dish. For the most part, no major complaints.
Time Warner, my Internet provider, on the other hand, really sucks.
I live in southern Wayne county, south of Metro Airport, and we experienced it as well.
I'm switching to Uverse just to be safe....
FYI, I have never called Comcast and not got the "we are experiencing heavier than normal call volume" recording. Their service is garbage.
