Whats with WXII? On Spectrum cable in TC they have flashing, lines, and bars in the picture. Also sound is bad, and sounds out of phase. Cosi TV net. has some good shows on but are un-watchable.

It's been like that for years and years on Charter/Spectrum. The one time I have viewed them over-the-air, there were some weird artifacts in the picture; perhaps the artifacts are made worse by the video signal being digitized for cable distribution.

They do have a construction permit for digital facilities on channel 30. Let's hope they follow through and successfully make the transition.

It was like that back in 2011 when it was WLLZ. Charter in TC for some reason had Ch 4 auto-switch to WLLZ when it lost connection from WPBN.

Right now wxii looks pretty good on charter TC, a little flicker but way better than it’s been. Right now I think the cozy tv feed is glitching up and freezing.

Thanks for the replies guys. I tried to watch Emergency this morning but it was rolling a lot,twitching and flashing. It wasn't bad yesterday but still not even close to todays cable quality as you see on all the other Spectrum channels.
