WLTX isn't that bad for me, but UPN 47 is the worst channel when it comes to audio problems in my opinion. I was watching "Total Recall" yesterday, and the talking was low the entire time, while the Sound effects and music were about 5 times louder than the talking.

Have either of you ever compared the sat version to the cable version to the ANALOG OTA version of these channels? I had the ability to compare the cable, D*, and E* version of all my locals within a short time period, and they were equally as bad on each service, leading me to believe the issue really lies with the local station....

I do agree UPN is not 2 good also.....

I got this response from WLTX last night.....

I agree. I have contacted DirecTV about the issue and am working with them on it. There is nothing I can do on my end without lowering the color on my signal thus making it incorrect. Thanks for the email and for watching WLTX.
