Did anybody else catch the last two Avalanche games (Wed vs Ducks, Thurs vs Coyotes) on Altitude HD?

I noticed several small signal glitches, lots of tiling and audio dropouts.
Mostly looked like transmission problems on the Alititude end.

I was just wondering if anybody else noticed these glitches.
Perhaps there is a problem with my setup.....

I don't watch Avalanche games but I watch plenty of Nuggets games on Altitude HD and there are frequent times during games all season long where there are glitches, audio dropouts. The audio dropouts were so bad the other night that my boyfriend asked me if he thought they were bleeping out bad language. Nope - just audio dropouts courtesy of Altitude HD is my guess.

Yes, I watched both games and noticed the same issues you did.

These are fairly common. At least there haven't been any audio sync issues lately, like there was when they first started broadcasting in HD.

Just found this thread. I think your setup is fine, I had the same issues. My wife even noticed and made the comment"Are you doing something new?":) I think its something on Altitude's end. At least their sound is improved this season although they could do a little more enhancing on the "surround" that they utilize by increasing the volume on the side ice mikes.
