Well you don't have to believe me how fortunate you are. You can watch 
the video. It drops out at each overpass. If you doubt my version of 
what the LG engineer told me you can ask him. His name is Sung-Ryong 
Hong and he claims to be responsible for the 5th gen development.

I specifically asked him about the video and his answer was that it was 
a non compatible version of 8-VSB and that while he was working on 
making 8-VSB work mobile it was very very difficult and he had no idea 
when it might be accomplished.

He is with the CNC Group Digital TV laboratory LG Electronics Inc.
