    I saw that there was a thread started and closed on this topic with no posts so I need to start it again.

    I've had DirecTV since October and I have always had a sound problem with channel CW 32. Every few seconds there is a sound glitch. The audio glitches and cuts out. My AV receiver loses the signal for a second from the HR22.

    Since someone else had this same problem and it only happens on this channel I've concluded its not me but this channel here in Portland.

    Anyone else still noticing this same thing? It makes CW impossible to watch, which sucks because they show some decent reruns.

    I get the noise as well. Kinda like a digital noise sound. It was so bad I no longer record anything on 32. I have an antenna and record form 32-1.

    I too experience this problem. Only the HD feed does it. The SD version of the channel shows no such artifacts.

    I have 3 HD receivers and have this problem on all. It has been like this since we got 32 in HD. It is almost unwatchable.

    I'm having the same problem with CW 32. I almost totally refuse to watch the HD channel due to this issue. I have this problem with sun, rain, snow, or anything else. No other channel has anything remotely like this for me.

    Portland,...
    This channel is unwatchable. Good thing is there's nothing on there I really need to watch.

    I just wanted to concur that the CW is nearly unwatchable for me as well:

    Channel(s) affected - CW (KRCW ch. 32)
    Date - Everyday
    Time - Happens about every couple minutes
    Description of Issue - Audio cracks and/or stutters while watching live TV, along with pixelization of the video. Happens for all programs on this station.
