Well guys, it's all my fault. Look what DirecTV went ahead and did - they are now tuned to WEAO 49-1 instead of 49-2 ... but they are center cutting the 16:9 HD frame chopping off the sides, and we're seeing 4:3 SD. Dumbasses.

What ??

I'm not getting any HD on 49 from DirecTV. You're talking the SD channel, right?

Ok, now I see what's going on. For channel 49 DirecTV only has "CL49" in the guide for WEAO (this was the old analog 49). All the "CL" channels are SD channels. I guess the WEAO guy may be correct, D* needs another satellite to add another whole "49" HD channel.

i.e., WVIZ "CL25" in the guide is the 4:3 SD version for non-HD D* tuners.
"25" is the 16:9 HD version for HD capable D* tuners.

I missed the fact that WEAO only has a "CL49" and not a "49"

It still does not excuse the fact that they apparently switched to a 4:3 center cut of 49-1. I watch The Newshour almost every night at 7pm and last Friday it was properly letterboxed on CL49. Tonight it was centercut on CL49 with graphics cut off the left and right sides.

Channel(s) affected - FSN Ohio HD 660-1
Date - 2/22/09
Time - 8:00 to 10:00 pm
Description of Issue - audio sync is off for the Cavs game. You could hear the "swish" of the basket before the ball would go through the hoop. Hard to pick up at first until they went to a live shot of the sideline reporter and it was very noticeable. I've seen them have audio sync issues on commercials before but not during the live game.

Does anyone have any idea when (or, more accurately, IF) Channel 43-HD is going to be available? I have sent several emails to them through their website with no response, and any attempts to ask DirecTV just lead me back to the station. And, yes, there are a few things on there that I would like in HD (News, WWE Smackdown, occasional movies).

Fox 8 was really bad today. A lot of audio sync problems and a lot of audio dropouts. I wonder if this is someway related to the latest firmware upgrade?

It seems like the encoders go about 25-30 days before someone needs to kick them again.

So, it's time to kick them again. :(

OTA Fox8 is fine.

Fox 8 bad again this AM. It was unwatchable last night for the 10pm news.

Does anyone know if this is the HD only problem. I may have to record hells kitchen tonight using the SD feed.

edit: I was on the phone with Directv for a possibly dying DVR, and while I had the guy on the phone I mentioned the issues with Fox 8. He asked me a bunch of questions for an engineering report.

Tweeted DirecTv letting them know that Fox8 is still unwatchable.

I urge others to do the same to get some more attention drawn to the problem.

Fox 8 was terrible during the 4:00 Philly/Oakland game yesterday. Sound kept stuttering. Last week, it made the Simpsons, FG, and Cleveland Show almost unwatchable!

Per the cavs Twitter feed:

For those fans watching tonight's game on FSO, the game will not be in HD due to technical difficulties at the Air Canada Centre.
