Same here. I have had this audio problem since the first day the channel became available.

As far as I can tell, Cartoon Network HD is the *only* channel I receive that has this bizarre audio problem.

Any thoughts? Anyone else notice this?


This is the only channel that I get the audio dropouts as well. I find it extremely annoying because it's like having the hiccups. We have this channel on a lot because my kids favorite programs are on it.

I too get the audio drop outs on Cartoon Network HD. The tech that came out to look at it denied the problem and wanted me to hook my receiver up with RCA cables. I told him to go home and DTV sent me a new receiver. It didn't help and the problem persists.

I can't believe the tech actually denied the problem! However, I did actually try it with RCA cables (for the audio, anyway...) a while back. I was hoping it was just some problem with my receiver decoding the DD 5.1. I figured analog Dolby Surround would be more tolerable than DD 5.1 with an audio drop-out once every ~48 seconds. No matter--the regular drop-outs are also on the analog audio output --at the same times as the DD 5.1, by the way. For the record, I also tried switching my HR20-100 to PCM mode (back to digital audio), and the regular audio drop-outs persist in that mode (once again, at the same times).

I think the problem is almost certainly with the Cartoon Network HD feed. I can't imagine why DirecTV would do anything differently with the Cartoon Network HD than it would with other channels on the same satellite?

Question:
Does anyone know someone with Dish Network or Cable who also gets Cartoon Network HD? Do they experience the same regular audio drop-outs--once every ~48 seconds?

I'm fairly certain that DirecTV is the only provider that carries this channel right now.

Add another to the list of disgruntled cartoon addicts experiencing frequent annoying droputs in the HD feed. And I concur that it occurs on both digital (to my receiver) and analog (to my TV) audio.

Oddly though, my kids ( 11 & 7) don't even notice the problem on this channel.:confused:

Is anyone at DIRECTV aware of the 'Cartoon Network HD'-specific audio dropout problem?

It's not clear to me whose side of the fence the problem is on.

Side Issue: Unfortunately, it is not easy for me to readily communicate the exact nature of the problem. Many other DIRECTV channels seem to suffer from occasional, momentary audio dropouts (at least on my HR-20), but these are usually recoverable by rewinding. The 'Cartoon Network HD'-specific audio dropout problem happens regularly, and the sound lost cannot be recovered by rewinding. I've had no luck explaining this problem to entry-level DIRECTV CSRs over the phone.

I think dtv and cartoon Network dont give a s- - t about this problem! It cant be a real hard problem to fix by whoever is at fault.
