THIS POST ISN'T REALLY ABOUT AMERICAN IDOL

I've noticed something ever since our local channels made the switch to digital TV, but I really noticed it tonight during American Idol. The signal stalled and pixelated at least two dozen times during the hour-long broadcast. Why is that?

When I turned to watch Family Guy on TBS the picture did not pixelate or freeze one single time. Is the problem with my cable box/cable provider or with the local stations? I thought digital was supposed to be so much better, but the interruptions became distracting and annoying after 15 minutes. It's not just FOX. I've noticed it on other channels, too.

It is happening on my tv, too, and we don't have the same provider.

We've been having the same problems. Digital...smigital. Hopefully these are just temporary problems that will soon be non-existent!

Could it be because they are live feeds?
