Is it just me or anyone else? Have a number for the engineering department and contact at WEWS in Cleveland? Turned on the station and it was SD with sound. Picture went to wide screen and lost sound. All other HD stations coming in with sound so I don't think it is my decoder.:(

The problem is originating with ABC. The 5.1 channel feed from the network is OK but the independent stereo feed is dead. I have talked to engineering at the network and they are aware of the problem. Only stations that do not have 5.1 channel equipment should be affected by the problem.

Thanks for taking the time to clear up this mystery here in Cleveland. Hopefully our ABC affiliate will soon acquire the equipment necessary to do 5.1 sound.

I couldn't even watch the analog channel. It wasn't coming in and for some reason Channel 5 wasn't coming in thru my cable provider, AT&T Clueless. I tried to watch it in HD with no sound for about 20 minutes. My questions is why didn't they just leave it as the upconvert with the sound? I'd rather have that than no sound.
