When I see a glitch these days, I ignore it.  I'm not going to bother
re-orienting the antenna until well after the digital transition date.  I
have no way of knowing if a particular station is broadcasting at full
digital strength yet, or they have everything optimized (thanks to
congress/Obama).  Of course, I don't have any major issues, just an
occasional glitch that's annoying, but not a show stopper.  I guess I'm
saying I wouldn't go to great lengths at this point to try to fix it until
you know the broadcaster is stable.
