HD Discussion: The Science Channel (Channel 284)
Posted 06 November 2007 - 12:37 PM
269-287 is the best block of channels, IMO.

I used to have the old TiVo setup that was 59/month.
When i upgraded to the '20 they kept me on the same 59$ plan and charged me 10/month for the HD package.
Aparently, D* was supposed to back me out of the 59/month plan, and put me on the HDDVR plan for 69.(Same price different "behind the scenes")
After I called them they did this and the Sci channel comes in now. No resetting or anyhting it appeared during the phone call. No change in cost of programming.

I see it as well. You are not alone.
FINALLY..... someone else seeing this issue with the noise / pixelation on the Science Channel.
I've posted this issue here and in the directv forums and no one can seem to relate. Out of frustration I hooked up a 27" Olevia lcd flat panel (my normal tv is the kds-60a2020) to the hr20 via both hdmi and component - I see the problem. Based on that alone I can rule out the TV and my cables (doubtful both sets of cables made by different vendors would be bad).
I then checked my signal strength on 103a (or was it b? - which ever is the one people here have you check for the HDs). My signals were all between 94 and 100.
I don't suspect my rg6 cabling or this white noise would happen on all channels and would only be happening to me - not to mmicha, robmfielding, or my buddy in town with the same issue.
This leaves we with 3 culprits - the hr20 itself, the science channel, or the b band converters. If it's the science channel, nothing I can do. If it's the HR20 - I don't even feel like dealing with it. But the BBCs? I guess I could order some new ones.
Anyone else with thoughts or ideas?

Any chance I can get you to comment on the audio sync problems widely reported here on Mythbusters over the past few weeks?

From postings on various forums it appears that if home viewers reboot their STB's it corrects the lip sync problem, which validates the statement above.
