Ch 9 has had issues for a couple of months, I only see it during the CBS feeds. Video break up and audio issues. Its not been as bad for last week or so. Ive seen it over the air, on Directv and Suddenlink. Ive emailed ch 9, several different people. Never get a response.
That's hardly a surprise that you never got a response. I can't tell you the number of e-mail and facebook messages/posts that I have fielded from the public about it.
I brought this up to management a year ago before WRAL switched to NBC. NCT's video would always break up during Y&R and I was told that it was a problem that every CBS affiliate was experiencing during the show. Of course, that's not the case. Neither WRAL, at the time, nor WNCN currently, experience the problem. Of course, they air(ed) Y&R on delay. However, it is clearly something with NCT's satellite receiver and they either can't or won't fix it.
I don't think WNCT has a master control, they are hubbed out of Greenville SC and probably linked by fiber. Here's a link to a site that mentions the Media General hub for about a dozen CBS stations, which I'm sure includes WNCT. https://www.fybush.com/site-20160311/
As I understand it, they reset the studio cameras. When they added the new lighting in the studio about a year ago, no one bothered to recalibrate the cameras to accomodate for the LED lighting. So for the past year, you and the rest of us in ENC have been looking at a washed out picture. It's a startling adjustment to anyone just tuning in. Having said that, and it's JMHO, I think the colors are brilliant now. But that's just me.
What was going on up there? They add lighting and don't adjust the cameras? No wonder it looks cartoonish now. They probably calibrated them too much... I watch other channels and their color looks so much less orange and blue.
Anyone else having issues with the audio on 9-1 lately? I'm getting frequent audio dropouts, but only on one TV. My un50ku6300 is the one with the issue. My older 720p Samsung is not having this issue.
I have also been having the same audio dropouts, mostly on my newest TV, a 55 inch 4K Samsung. VERY ANNOYING! I assumed that I was picking up some sort of electrical interference from within my home into my antenna system.. I am glad that I didn't take the time trying to isolate the cause. That would have been a total waste of time. Thank you for the heads up.
