Do they look the same way using the direct TV feed or is the problem
limited to MythTV?  It's possible that the retransmitter is
off-frequency and the TV tuners can automatically adjust but they are
too far off the NTSC assignments for ivtv to auto-tune.

Does anyone else in the building have the same problem?  Maybe it's a
problem with the cable to your unit.  On the other hand, maybe they
grouped the horizontally and vertically polarized channels and one of
the dish LNs is out of whack.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.
