In watching Nip/Tuck in HD last week, I continued to experience frequent audio dropouts when Dolby Digital is turned on on my HR20-100. Interestingly, if I "backspace" immediately after a drop, the audio plays correctly, so the DVR recorded it, but it is dropping out on playback.

As soon as I turn Dolby Digital off, the dropouts disappear. In my experience, I am only getting this on FX and on no other channel. It appears that I am not the only one experiencing this annoying problem.

Any suggestions?

They made the FX HD bug smaller and more opaque, I like it! I wish the rest of the networks would follow their lead. However, the 2.0 audio mix was still screwed up during Nip/Tuck tonight.

Continued audio issues here too. I don't have any dropouts when listening to the audio through HDMI to my display but have drop outs when listening to 5.1 via optical to my surround receiver. I only have this issue on FX. Help!!

I am impressed with That 70's Show quality compared to its original quality of FX

OK, writing on here again because I think I'm losing my mind! I still have the audio dropouts when using 5.1 audio but no dropouts when using PCM audio from the receiver to my surround receiver. I also still have the horizontal white lines flashing across the screen during 4:3 widescreen shots, like what we used to see in the day when a VCR was adjusting the tracking. Shots in HD 16x9 are beautiful. I only have these issues on FX. Is it the channel? Is it me? Is it my sanity?! I really don't want to call for service, but, if I have to so I can watch Nip/Tuck in 5.1 dolby surround... :bang

That is a problem with FX, it has nothing to do with your equipment. They've been broadcasting in HD for almost a month now, I can't understand why they haven't fixed this issue yet.

Trying to not start a whole new topic, but has anyone that doesn't normally see lip-sync continue to see it on FXHD? I have no issues with other HDs. I'm assuming it's widespread & Directv and/or FX can see this and adjust it.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

DirecTV is too busy trying to split out the HD channels for next years HD Super Plus channels to worry about lip sync issues:D

I watched "I, Robot" on F/X HD last night and it was the best-looking broadcast HD that I have ever seen. However the audio was strange - while the surround sound was very aggressive, I think that the front left and right channels were coming out of the rear speakers, and vice versa. (The center channel was fine.) Did anyone notice this or did it sound correct to you? Most of the commercials during this program had strong use of all audio channels - my A/V receiver detected a Dolby Digital track throughout - maybe F/X is doubling the front channels in the rear channels or something?
