Its Tuesday night and the BBBbrrrippps are back on WFLX 29.
Please Directv, let me get another local Fox channel.
The new seasons are coming and I don't want to be forced to record SD back up shows.

WPBF 25 ABC - Second week in a row on "V" the sound has been "funny". Background effects and surround noises are high and voices and center channel is very low.
I used my receiver and set it to a phantom center channel to be able to enjoy the show.

I do not believe this is just local. I believe this is ABC national affiliate feed to directv. But I will start here.

It's been a while, but I am getting the no permission message to start a new thread.

WPEC channel 12 out of WPB,FL is having video and issues again.
Tonight's recordings from that channel were riddled as if it were raining, although we had clear skies.

Now WPEC has both video glitches and they are missing the center channel for 3 days now.

I tried emailing their engineering department. I have not received any response.

After sending several comments on WPEC's website to their engineering dept and calling a DTV csr to help, I about gave up.
Today I called and got in touch with Joe in engineering.
He said I was the only one who has been complaining and that is why they have been ignoring it.
When I described all of the circumstances, he seemed to get a moment of clarity of what it could be.

More to come...

I just checked a couple of my recordings from WPEC and find the same results as you. I'm getting no center channel audio on either SAT feed or OTA.

Someone out there is paying attention.

After a couple weeks of the glitches, as soon as I posted this, the troubles are gone the next day and ever since.

 

Thank you

Here we go again with WPEC. For 2 weeks now the video glitches come and go and now for 2 nights in a row we are missing the center channel again.

 

I want the choice from Directv to choose another CBS channel.

Now WPEC is missing the center channel and the audio is wavering up and down. And as an added bonus the video glitches are back.

 

I don't know if this is happening in prime time. But It affects my recordings of the 11pm News and David Letterman and Craig Ferguson.

For weeks now I am in the same boat as I always am annually with WPEC channel 12 out of WPB.

They have something that goes bad with the HD feed the provide Directv.

I cannot get OTA up here in Fort Pierce.

So the game begins with trying to contact an engineer at WPEC.

Then they recommend contacting Directv. Directv says they will log the complaint.

 

The national feed shows from CBS are in HD 5.1 and have a few video glitches and brrripppps.

But the audio is fine.

But the 11oclock news and David Letterman and Craig Ferguson are riddled with video bripps and are sending a 5.1 signal missing everything but left and right channel.

 

Every year I get the same run around as if I am the only one with the issue.

And then one day they lose the HD signal all together with a blue screen apology for a day or 2 and then it is fixed again for another year.

 

Well now I am going on 4 weeks of this and I do not where to turn at this point.

The engineers at the station know my name now and won't return my calls.

I noticed "white flakes" in my recording of "How I Met Your Mother" from Monday night but no other issues.  I'll have to record Letterman or Ferguson and see if I'm getting center channel audio or not.

I am getting the feeling that this is really the problem. No one watches Letterman any more.

I just cannot believe I am the only one watching the 11pm news and seeing the terrible brrrripps and audio issues.

 

I am literally recording 99 other series on probably 20+ different channels with no issues.

But after looking back at the threads, this has been going on every year since 2008.

I completely forgot to come back and post my findings, sorry.  I've recorded Letterman and Ferguson for the last few nights and I've had center channel audio on each recording.

I'm not seeing any issues on Letterman or Ferguson recorded via SAT.
