I ended up recording in SD just to be sure, and was glad I did because it was out of sync. Here is the note I recieved from dish today.

Our engineers have been working on the lip sync issue on your local ABC station. Hopefully, by the time you get this, the issue will have cleared.:rolleyes:


Either E* is actually working the problem or they just decided to send out these emails to all the people that complained to dishquality.com. I received a very similar letter about ABC being fixed and NBC still being worked on. Do you think these problems were nationwide?

I got the following e-mail from dish:

Thank you for expressing your concerns and interest in DISH Network. Customer input is an important tool in our efforts to continuously improve the quality of the DISH Network service.

We have received word from our engineers that this is close to being resolved. If you should still see this issue after one week, would you notify us again.

At DISH Network we appreciate the time customers take to email their audio/video quality concerns. Thank you for your patience, information, and for being a valued customer.


I haven't experienced any lip synch issues recently on ABC - hopefully it is fixed.

See, this is what I mean: my email back from them states the exact same thing (see below):

Just wanted to add I've also experienced significant audio sync issues on ABC HD in Seattle, doesn't matter if its OTA or Locals on Dish. It really does suck because prior to a few weeks ago, I wasn't seeing any issues.

I live in Clear Lake City (southeast Houston, TX) and since i got the ViP622 HD DVR, I have had nothing but problems. The pixelating recurs often. I began having sound drops. Then i started getting "Check Switch" error. We have had about 8 technicians out and every cable and connector has been changed out by them. I just had one leave my house and after installing a new receiver i had a quick pixelate and short sound drop before he could even get to his truck. I have been a Dish customer for about 10 years and don't really want to switch, but am on my last raw nerve over this and ready to switch to cable. I really don't think they know what it is or have faith they can fix it. Anyone out there have similar problems that got fixed????????????? How?????////
