WSVN chief engineer "How can i help you"
d "I am having problems with sound on your digital channel"
CE "Ahhh. You are one of our three viewers. Rodmanbra, MMBurke and you are?
d "Dave 480i McRoy"
CE "Good one sir! If you plan on complaining about our 480i only DT ways, take a number! We have no plans for 480p pass thru. Besides it isn't HDTV either"
d "why so rude. Btw, i am a fellow broadcaster friend"
CE " Sorry but time is $$$. Are you a FOX employee?"
d "No i am with freedom communications."
CE "Never heard of them!"
d "WPEC, CBS! Actually i am having audio problems!"
CE "We give no special treatment to any viewer. Infact, you are probably not in our DNA(DMA)."
d "That is no reason not to help. Btw, i am helping you by providing feedback. Once again my Zenith tuner will not accept audio from your channel."
CE "We never tested with zenith tuner. We use DTC-100 for quality control. Why not just use this?"
d "I have a DTC-100.Your channel should work on 5k Zenith too!"
CE "I have a perfect solution for you. Use the DTC-100! Thanks for calling. We are "just one station".
