That means a mono analog tv here 13" Sony Trinitron (hooked up correctly to the converter box) gets no sound on 3.1
3.2, 3.3, and 3.4 all use the left channel and work correctly with QVC being the "loudest"
On a stereo tv, 3.1 audio is soft, scratchy, and on the right speaker only.
K03HY has had these audio problems for several weeks now. I didn't realize that it was the same on the other "One Ministry" channels. Looks like the source of the problem is back up the audio chain a few steps. The levels vary a lot from one sub-channel to the next with QVC sounding not only loud, but quite distorted.
Video-wise, 3.1 looks good, 3.2 is 16:9 but very soft, looking almost out of focus, and QVC on 3.3 is a 16:9 picture being sent out 4:3. It looks good if you hit the "Wide" button and stretch it to 16:9. I think that's a QVC problem though, as it's the same on 65.6.
While talking about various problems, I've noticed that several channels now require me to use that "Wide" button. The video is 16:9 but being sent in a 4:3 frame, so everyone looks really skinny. I notice this a lot on channels 26 and 32. Just the opposite, 10.2 is sending out LiveWell in stretched mode. You would think that the stations would send out the program so that it would be displayed in the proper size, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
KEMO 50.2 is still sending out the program information for what's on 50.1. They've never updated their PSIP info. KTNC 42.4 is now sending out a blank, black screen, and KMTP 32 continues to be all messed up, sending out blank screens on 32.2 and 32.4 (there is no 32.3) and sending the wrong program information with PSIP.
One improvement... KDTS 52 finally got rid of the "BOB-4" supered across the center of the picture.
I didn't realize that ZUUS had disappeared. I've noticed that there's a slide on 28.3 showing that the channel is available for lease and I've seen lots of informercials on 28.15, but I thought they were being sent by ZUUS Country. Time to update my lists again.
