Compression issue - red blockiness, pixelation

I'm having trouble compressing a video (NTSC, .dv format) without getting blockiness in the red area. The .dv file does not have it, but when compressing for playback on a Brightsign player, every file I make has this blockiness. I've tried H.264, and both HD and SD MPEG-2 Transport Streams. (screenshot attached)

Any suggestions for file formats that wouldn't have this problem, or maybe I just need to change a setting in Compressor? I could also use Sorensen Squeeze 6 if it would help.

Currently I'm just doing trial and error, but I'm running out of time, so any advice is appreciated.
