Not only that but the hd feed looks like something out of youtube on ps3. On demand abc is only in stereo.

Remember that the quality of the HD you see and audio you hear is most affected by your local affiliate. Here in Madison, WKOW reencodes ABC HD at about ~10Mbps and it looks rather poor. Over in Milwaukee, WISN runs full bandwidth (~17.8 Mbps) and they are the best looking station in the market.

Yep on fios in NY its absolutely hideous, in fact its an insult to the word hideous to call it hideous.

I had called fios about it & actually got to the engineering or whatever dept.

The guy knew what i was talking about & even said theyve had multiple complaints but everything is ok on the fios end its just how abc sends their feed to them.

You know its bad when that dept knows about it cause usually they are clueless on these issues but they sure knew about this.

I am really glad someone said something about this. ABC is absolutely the worst. It's hard for me to verbalize, but even though my receiver says I'm getting Dolby surround sound, it's like the ambient noises in the programs comes through the center speaker. I assure you, it is not my setup at fault here. I've put my ear up to different speakers; the surround is not nearly as clear in the surround ones as on other channels, movies, or video games. ABC's seems to be mostly directed through the center channel and gets very muddled. I often have to turn up my volume on their shows 5-10 points higher just to make out dialogue through the noise coming out of that speaker.
