Futurama, DirecTV Locals and Video Scaler

I just got a new Quadscan Pro video scaler. I have been playing all kinds of material through the unit including both DVDs and DirecTV.

I was watching Futurama off of FOX (KPDX Portland, OR) and I noticed that the video would jump up and down by one pixel every second or so. It wasn't all the time either.

Have other people seen this kind on artifacting on highly compressed DTV signals?

Thanks

I've seen it on The Simpsons on FOX in the DC/VA area on my Sony WEGA (with the built-in line doubler). Never noticed it on Futurama though.

Well, I saved this weeks Futurama and I looked at it when bypassing the scaler. It is the DTV feed that is corrupted. Bounce, bounce bounce. I just never noticed it on my 27" TV. Put it on a 6' wide screen and you can see it. When you saddle u0p next to the 27" you can see it too!

The scaler was working great. *whew*

Now I just have to ask DTV why Futurama has had too much coffee. (I think it is compression artifacting and low iframe count, but that it just a guess.)

Thanks everyone.
