I am encountering audio dropout on all digital channels lower than 30. Anyone else experiencing this problem in the Bay Area? I can't imagine it being a broadcast problem as all channels at 29 and below do it quite badly. 30 and above are fine. The drop-out occurs about every 2-3 second for a fraction of a second. I have the audio output set for AV proccessor and am using the SPDIF out on the accessdtv connected to a Theta Casa Nova.

I recorded a channel 29 (CBS) and it had really bad stuttering upon watching it during recording. However during playback, there is no audio problem? Is this fixed by the SW that Rich4av is testing? I would like to try it if it does. CBS and WB are totally impossible to watch in the current state. I had no problems with my DTC100.

Had another question concerning overscan on full screen output. I have the accessdtv attached to a Pionner Elite HDTV and there is significant horizontal overscan. For instance, on FOX 16x9 programs the "x" in Fox is totally off of the screen. This seems to be softening the picture a bit too compared to what I remember from my DTC100 (sold it but starting to wonder if I should have).

How about the overscan issue? Is there anyway to adjust it via the accessdtv card?

No adjustments for overscan in the current software. I'll check with accessDTV to see if overscan can be set to be equal to the DCT100.
