I've noted several occurances of audio drop out on this local HD channel(3 - WCAX - CBS). Video signal is fine, but audio will drop for several seconds. Rewind/replay and it still occurs. Noticed on CSI, 11th Hr, Unit, and NCIS.
Anyone else observing this symptom ?

I just searched this site to see if anyone had posted any problems with this. The audio on WCAX is awful. I have yet to watch a complete prime time show without several audio dropouts or it keeps changing between DD 5.1 and DD 2.0 causing my receiver to lose sync. It is very annoying.

Do the changes between DD 5.1 and DD 2.0 seem to be coinicident with banner messages or the local network overlays? It seems like our locals don't have or maybe don't use the technology to display 16:9 banners and logos.
The audio drop outs seem to happen most on WCAX, but I have noticed them on Fox44. One of these days I a going to record WCAX HD via D* and via OTA and see if the dropouts are simultaneous..

I would like to know what equipment is required to get the HD locals from Burlington on Direct TV? What satellite are the channels broadcast from? spotbeam? new antenna for 72 degre satellite? please advice.

As far as the locals go, if all you are interested in is HD they are on a spot beam from either 103 or 99, I forget which. SD locals are/were delivered from the extra 72.5 sat. About a week or two after the HD locals became available here, I took my 72.5 dish down off the house. Note only one dish in my sig below.

Do you know if the spot beam bleeds out to reach Montreal?

It is happening again today on 1/10. Video is very hard to watch as it seems to be studdering and Audio is not in sync with video. Hopefully someone fixes it because its unwatchable.
