Poor quality on local channels

I am having issues with pixelation and blurred motion on my local channels, especially ABC, channel 6 in my zip code 29803. Football games show this problem especially. All other channels appear to be fine. Is dish working on this problem?

I don't show any known issues with that area currently, so I may need to get this sent forward for you. Was is just football games, or every show on ABC?

It is on all shows from local channels and has been like this for a couple of months. I alerted DISH about this before and they said engineering is working on the issue but that was at least a 2 months ago. It is really bad with fast motion aka football games. Once the camera stops panning the picture gets better but still does look like HD. I have reset and unplugged the hopper and did the system sat/tuner checks that produced no errors.
If this is not a problem with local channels on DISH in my area, then I may need a tech to come check out my system. However, all other non-local channels seem to be fine.

Just checked with a friend down the street and he is noticing the same issues with his dish system.

What satellites are you looking at? What equipment do you have?
