Noticeable lip sync delay right now on an HR21-100.
I noticed that too. I think Huckabee must have been shot in 480p, I just happened to turn the TV on in the middle of the show. Fox News Sunday has always been that way. It comes in as 16:9, but it clearly isn't 720 or 1080 when it comes to detail. I don't know if that's because politicians aren't exactly photogenic... We're not talking Leno or Letterman here.
I hope that they transition away from the side-bar and into full screen content, but that's probably going to take the better part of a few years as they allow their viewers to transition from SD to HD. It's such a popular channel that I imagine that all the cable outlets will get them w/in 6 months. I'm betting that DirecTV is their "limited national" test. I just consider it lucky we get HD before election night.
And least Fox Business seems like it's shot in 1080, even though they still use 4:3 plus side-bar. I'd be fine with that because at least you get the images and talking-heads in HD resolution. It doesn't clash nearly as bad as SD people and HD graphics.
I can't really compare to other networks because Special Report w/Brit Hume is pretty much the only news show I watch.
I have seen some really bad ones actually...
I, too, am experiencing lip sync issues.
i'm still having lip sync problems on fox hd
Been having 771 issues with the Fox HD channel since it's launch but it looks like my problem goes deeper with the HD part Direct is coming out to re-align the dish.
Lip-sync seems better for me tonight on Hannity and Colmes.....on a H20-100
So why is that when I record an FNC show that's broadcast in HD, it shows up on my HR20-700 in SD?
Are you setting it to record the HD channel? If it's a Series Link, try resetting it for the HD channel version.
I wondered about the SL setting, but when I looked it showed the HD channel. However, I'll try your suggestion and create a new SL.
Have not watched it this evening but Cavuto's lip-sync this afternoon was right on with my HR21. PQ looked awfully flat to me though.
I have a client that just called and apparently he gets every HD channel but for some reason the new Fox news does not come in. Have not talked to him yet but anything I should specifically look for? Do the receivers need a forced update to get it?
He's probably using a custom favorites list.
If so, tell him to manually add channel 360 to it.
And while he's editing the list, tell him to scroll through everything else and add anything else that says "HD" to the end of the channel names.
Cancelled the SL and created a new one. Problem solved!
As a dish man I was at first jealous reading the front page but after reading so many "sidebar" comments it sounds to me like the channel offers little to no original HD content so this is quite a let down honestly cause I like this channel.
From what I can tell, it is in HD, but they wanted to keep the 4:3 format to eliminate the use of dual cameras. At least that is what I read. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but it looks like friggen HD to me.
Edit: you may commence being jealous, lol
While I like the layout of this channel's presentation, the horrible lip synch makes this channel unwatchable for me.
Bad lip synch issues here as well, at least as of last night.
Yep, some of the worst lip sync ever and the pause-play fix does not work.
Does anyone know if DTV wants a call about the lip sync, are they preferring a post in the forums regarding this issue, or should we jsut sit tight? Nothing on twitter about it . . .
