Thanks for the info, UND Irish, and welcome to AVS Forum. I tried a search yesterday but nothing came up, including this informative article from the IBJ.

here in cincinnati Daystar operates a low power station on ch. 36. they have the hd channel on 36-1 and the exact same programming on 36-2 except its in standard definition. I think its a waste of precious bandwidth to have duplicate channels.

Here's another little bright spot for the staff at WISH-TV. In Tuesday night's national TV ratings, CW was in 5th place while NBC was in 6th place! Univision was 4th. http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/201...ect-up/364405/

It was worse when their only sub channel was SD!

Aren't they bound by FCC rules to send their programming 12 hours out in their stream? (Or something along those lines...)

LPTV stations aren't covered by that rule, only full-power and Class A stations.

Tonight's "The Big Bang Theory" from 7:30 - 8 p.m. was really bad.

Now to attempt to describe it. It's like multiple channels are mixing together and maybe one or more channels are out of phase. Or another way to attempt to describe it is that a volume limiter is not set correctly, where it is over-suppressing anything too loud but then not releasing or returning the volume back to its normal/average level. There is no uniformity to the level. I find it very difficult to listen to audio this way. It reminds me of some bad radio station limiters on an AM transmitter a number of years ago.
Per my previous post regarding the strange up and down audio levels on WTTV/WTTK, I noticed the same issue while watching the Ohio State/Michigan basketball game from CBS early Sunday afternoon. Am I the only one noticing this? I don't remember hearing this when CBS was on WISH. The next time I hear this from a CBS program on WTTV/WTTK I need to compare the audio from WLFI (CBS), Lafayette to see if it is noticeable there, too.

I have made contact over the past few weeks with an engineer at WTTV/WTTK regarding their audio. One of the staff engineers has confirmed that he too has heard the same issues I've been attempting to describe.

I've been watching/listening to the SMU vs UConn game on CBS this afternoon. I'm currently comparing the audio between WTTK and WLFI, Lafayette and the difference is like night vs. day. At times the announcers get troused by crowd noise and other audio sounds via WTTK that they are difficult to hear. On WLFI the announcer voices are much stronger and clearer. They don't get buried like on WTTK. The announcers sound so reduced and limited/suppressed on WTTK.
