No, it's a local channel. It doesn't blackout as i watch it, just when I go to it. It's on now. It happens once in a while, not every day. But I don;t see any reason to keep resetting the box.
Tony I call this the Black screen of LiveTV (BSoLTV), not to be confused with the Black Screen of Death, recorded TV shows that won'tr play issue from last year.
1. Resetting the box will bring it back
2. The channel will record just fine and you can see it in preview
3. If the channel has an SD or HD counterpart it will be one or the other but never both, just go to the other, if you don't wish to reset the box
Phil - I only notice it when tuning into a channel. I have noticed it on ESPN 2 HD 1606, GSN 173, WTHR-13 and maybe a few others. I have seen it maybe 2x//month.
AT&T has been mum on this. I have some contacts with the AT&T Social Media Team, maybe they know something?
