Unhappy Aaaargh!! What's with the picture break-up on Knocked up

Regular picture and sound break up on Knocked up is really irritating. Is there storm activity or is it at MC?

Guess that explains why my recording of it stopped

It was a dark and stormy night.
(But because his installation was sound, his DStv reception was perfect.)

Why is it that the shows have break-up and the friggen' ads are fine?

Default No problem on SD PVR

No breakup. Weather OK over Randburg.

I experienced the same thing on Knocked-up tonight on the HD channel and have also seen this on a number of other programs lately on channel 170.
I believe this is an uplink problem (Original media or equipment) and not the HDPVR

I did record Knocked Up on 170 last night and would be happy to go throught it to check if their was a problem with the recording. Did not record 101.

I recorded Knocked Up on SD-PVR and had no picture breakup problems.

There definitely was break-up on channel 170 during Knocked Up as well as Moonlight on Friday.
