H20 audio sync problems
Posted 05 January 2006 - 08:58 AM
In both cases, their technical staffs seem sub par all the way across the cognitive spectrum. Using a split screen to watch the Rose Bowl (what a great game, now if we could just get Keith (HOMER) Jackson off the air!) the signal from KGO took three or four plays to return to HD after commercial breaks while there was no problem with the feed from LA.
I’ve spoken with station management on this and they have no interest, whatsoever. The attitude in engineering is that “we can only deliver what the network sends” and when called on the SD/HD shifts, the answer is that the equipment is automated and therefore there is nothing that can be done (so, how is it that the LA equipment makes the shift and the KGO equipment doesn’t).
The audio breaks are particularly annoying for me because I use a wireless headset (current wife hates sports and the associated sounds) and the pops and cracks that precede a loss and return of the sound are amplified.
Because of the lack of concern on the part of station management, I can’t imagine any action that might fix the problem. That said, if someone out there has an idea, I’d be more than willing to participate in whatever might fix the problem.

None of the SF HD locals are up except for KNTV. KTVU, KPIX, and KGO all have the Directv slide stating that "This channel is not currently broadcasting."
KNTV is on, but it has a noticable audio stutter. I've noticed this stutter at various times on all of the SF HD locals, but it seems to go away and then re-appear.
Anyone else having this stutter? It was very apparent during the bowl game the other night on KGO.
I NEVER have these problems with the LA feeds..........
Hopefully, its just and MPEG-4 bug that they will work out.

New to board here. I have a bevy of D equipment ( couple of Hughes boxes, RCA D Tivo boxes, H10 & H20). I have been with D for about 10 years and love it. I had my 5 LNB and H20 installed a month ago. I'm having a horrible problem with the audio on the HD locals. I called Tech Support and they were unable to help, techs have been out twice and cannot seem to find anything wrong, D even switched out the box. Anyone else have a similiar problem?
The problem has improved. I have noticed fewer complete audio drops this week. But, they're still there. The larger problem at this point is the lack of audio / video sync. Of course, I have continued to converse with D* about it. To their credit, they admit there's a problem, but cannot offer a solutionn.

Night Live was unwatcable and Jay Leno same thing. Seems
worse on local NBC. D* tried to blame it on my Stereo
System. What a joke.

Mine upgraded the day I got it, even prior to being authorized by D*.
