so hopefully someone will check on it as I cant believe they would want it to sound like it does, and maybe they are working on it already or maybe don't know because no one can contact them. so fingers crossed


Hi Erik,
Thank you for letting me know!!
I will try to find the right person to direct this to.

Take Care,
Natalie
I left a message with the engineer for WFLD/WPWR. It sounds terrible even using just the TV speakers.

Call the WFLD main line and select the programming department and tell them. More people that do so makes it more noticeable.

Can anyone explain why I'm not experiencing any of these audio problems?

I use Windows Media Center which sends audio over the HDMI cable to the TV and there isnt a trace of any distortion at the levels that are being describing. Granted, I'm not an audio affection-ado but i think I'd recognize a problem if I heard it. I've even tuned into ch18 out of Milwaukee and other than it's audio being 5.1, everything sounds identical and seems fine to me.

Are you on cable, antenna, sat? Do you watch Supergirl, Flash, Arrow, Legends, or Supernatural?

the audio problem is there. I even record the ts stream direct on my pc with a Hauppauge hd card and the low bit audio quality is present thought not as noticeable on the pc speakers as a large tv or my dennon avr . my front left and right speakers are klipschorn so you can imagine how noticeable bad audio is. what the hell is wrong with the people that work at cw 50? you would think someone there watches the shows they have. or do they know and a hardware update is needed and they are too cheap do do it. by the way fox 32 is fine. my wife watched pitch last night and audio was great. completely ruined the supergirl-flash-arrow-legends crossover for me because of the sound.

The problem in that audio clip is very noticeable, yet I've been watching those shows for weeks and have never noticed anything.

Maybe I'll be more attuned to it now that I've heard it. I'll have to redo my comparison with ch18 out of Milwaukee. I watched last night's Legends and didnt notice anything. There's always the possibility I have a tin ear too :-)

BTW, this is OTA.

On a different issue....

What has happened to WMEU 48.1,48.2 and also WRJK 22.1 & its channels. I haven't had a signal on either channel for quite some time now. Anyone know what's going on with either of them?

R. B.

Also, are you watching using TV speakers or AV receiver? If the former, what model TV?

It's TV speakers. I dont know the model but its a 3 yr old Samsung, 60".

The audio comes out of the HTPC via HDMI to the TV, then to the TV's speakers.. I think its 2 channel out of the computer so the computer is doing the decoding.
