Re: CBC channel 8 in Ottawa has choppy video

Yes, I agree.  I tested this a couple of weeks ago and had no issue recording/watching the Vancouver CBC feed of the same program (Anne with an e) that was very choppy here.  CBC Ottawa is unwatchable most evgs. - 22 Minutes, Frankie Drake, etc all exhibit this choppiness issue for me.  However this not always the case.  I have been able to watch some programs - Dragon's Den with no issue.   I find it very strange that the local news broadcasts flawlessly but as soon as they cut to a commercial, the commercial is very choppy.  In my opinion this seems to indicate that something is amiss with the handling of the "network" feed for CBOT.    Maybe Rogers could map out the CBC feeds and figure out which node in their network is actually feeding the commercials or some of the shows I have mentioned it could point to something....
