I have Comcast Chicago HD and lately, especially ABC HD and some other channels, the bass is so boomy and prevelant, that it is exhausting on the ears to listen. I am finding myself having to turn DOWN my bass volume. Other channels are fine.

I have a pioneer receiver, all hooked up via HDMI, and have changed from Pure Direct, Direct, to Auto Surround, to ACL...nothing helps. It is definitely in the mix being transmitted by either the studio or Comcast.

Anyone else hearing this boomy bass?

Edit: I have also found this thread of other mentioning same occurrence. http://forums.comcast.com/t5/Channel...2353813#M54729

It's the same via Directv. I have to switch the Directv receiver to PCM sound to get rid of the much too loud bass. Other channels are fine with Dolby turned on. Seems to point to a problem from either WLS-TV or ABC.

I've noticed some weird issue with WLS-HD, too. I didn't seem to notice it yesterday, but I do remember a noticeable rumbling during many shows like "The Middle" and similar.

I also asked this on the OTA forum, just to verify it's a WLS issue:

FXX HD is supposed to be on channel 337. It's on the box, but there is no signal. History HD, Animal Planet HD and Velocity are on the same frequency (489MHz, RF 68), and they work. Is this really going to be a 4:1 HD, or is there a mixup?

I called Comcast a few days ago about the blank screen on FXX HD 337. A guy with a heavy Indian accent named "Fernando" told me they were working on it and it should go active shortly. It's still dead this morning. It's Comtastic!

Flicks? Here's my collection. And I've seen a lot, too.
