    Very minor issue, but it has been this way since HD channels were turned on:

    Channel(s) affected: 17
    Date: Since prior to Feb 2007.
    Time: N/A
    Description of Issue: If you pull up the guide and move left, you get a brief description of the local channel. Channel 17 shows the following:
    The callsign is incorrect (and probably copied from the above channel 11). Text should read:
    Just a typo on the call sign.

    Anyone else notice lip synch issues on WRAL's 11 PM news? I usually have to watch the OTA feed to be able to watch.

    I just noticed this thread so that is the only reason I'm posting so late. Channel 11 WTVD has horrible lip sync issues and has for the last day or two. It's occurring right now as I type this.

    I am having the same issues with WTVD HD in Raleigh with horrible sync issues. Most of the time it's in the AM. Not only bad sync issues... but the audio has bad artifacts kind of like a CD skipping when it's dirty. I have only seen this on WTVD HD channel.

    Yep, I'm getting it too. The audio glitch sounds like the noise in the Matrix when an agent takes over a person's body. The audio doesn't sync with the video either, it seems to lead the related video by about a quarter-second. I see it on both of my receivers (DVR/non-DVR). Of note, the video feed seems fine, with no artifacting like a signal drop typically causes.

    I had that same sound issue last while watching a recording of Monday's One Tree Hill from WLFL. I wonder whom from DBSTalk is taking down this information?

    WTVD 11 was having major audio cut out problems on monday evening. Only other issue we notice is lip sync issues at times on WRAL 5 news.

    I am hearing it now watching World news tonight. It is so bad I had to switch to the SD feed.

    WTVD was better during the early morning local news on Wednesday. I thought that the problem had been solved, but by that evening's 18:00 news, it was back just as bad as before. FWIW, these are not intermittent glitches; they occur every ten/fifteen seconds. It's enough to make one not watch the channel or go OTA.

    Anyone else having no audio on Fox50 and digital glitching every 8-10 seconds on their HD feed? Been doing that since at least 3pm this afternoon; had audio glitching this morning as well. I called DirecTV and sent an email to Fox50.

    My son complained about no audio on 50 WRAZ about 8;20pm during Bones on his HR20-700. I checked my HR20-100 and its also in run silent mode. I suggested closed caption, then he remembered OTA, for what its worth there's sound.

    Well, audio is back, but we're still experiencing the audio glitches every 3-5 seconds, just like yesterday morning. Sure hope someone at DirecTV is working on the issue. If you're in the DMA and experiencing these problems, please call DirecTV and report it. That's the only way to get someone out there to solve the problem.

    Just a quick update. Got an email from the engineer at Fox50 stating that DirecTV swapped out some piece of equipment overnight last night. When I told him that the issue was still ongoing, he rang them up again. By 2pm this afternoon, DirecTV told him that they found the issue and it has been corrected. As far as I can tell, everything seems to be back to normal.

    Big thanks to the Fox50 engineer who has the super secret DirecTV "Hey, I'm the chief engineer and you're messing with my signal" phone number! :)

    The last couple of weeks have been terrible on WTVD 11 with lip sync. On Extreme Home Makeover last night it was like watching an old film that forgot to put subtitles in. Is anyone else have problems with 11?

    My recording of Boston Legal from last night didn't have any sync issues. Did it clear up before 10pm?

    In the past, I have seen issues with TVD. The one time I caught it live, I switched over to the HD feed on cable and saw the exact same sync issue. Haven't caught it again since that time.

    I have been seeing pixelation on WTVD lately.
