Thanks for the feedback Bob. I figured the SB would not be a problem (other than a catastrophic loss). Good luck on digging out of the snow and ice.

Hi fellas ... not meaning to change the discussion away from "signal reception" ... but last night I was watching CSI around 9:05 pm ... this was a scene inside the hospital (?) ... the scene was semi-lit ... the characters all had a greenish hue to them.

This is what I was referring to earlier ... is this peculiar to CSI ?

I do remember the football events looking very clean.

The greenish hue bothered me so I switched away from it. (sorry, to be anal about it :-) )

Happy SB Sunday.

Bob,
Do you think someone will be there during the SB? It is a pretty important event!

Thanks for the update, Bob. Hopefully everything will run smoothly for the Super Bowl.

WIS had better get on the ball. I bet that they don't meet their deadline. They were running commercials saying they would be going high def in early 2003 during October, but I haven't seen any commercials since. Anyone hearing anything about them?

Go Gamecocks!

I have been monitoring Wolo-DT all evening.Sound was great as long as they were broadcasting SD.They have only 1 show in HD tonight,The Drew Carey Show.At exactly 9:00 pm the stuttering 5.1 started and continued until exactly 9:30 pm.As soon the next show started the sound was back to normal.Why do they have problems now?Low volume is one point,but constant woofer popping is insane!

Yep; their receiver appears to be acting up again. I reckon Bob and his crew will have a busy day tomorrow working on it and I have no doubts he will be there at master control on Sunday just in case. They had it working fine earlier today probably for several hours. I was in Columbia this morning so only caught the test feed starting around 2:15 pm. I let it run here while I worked and I believe it was on continuously until they switched over to Raymond at 4pm. Bob may have been polite when he said it was "cantankerous."

My money says it will work but for an alternative for bad audio might be to have a NTSC set in the room and listen to its audio. It will not be in sync but heck ... its football right? Might be nice to be able to show the comparison of "great" vs "blah". Or perhaps tune the VCR to the right channel and feed it's analog audio to your A/V receiver. Bruce

Rick,
Thanks for the input! Sounds good! I personally have seen your DT signal (Ch 48) using a Zenith receiver but many here at AVS including myself (again) use TWC for their HDTV. Good luck!

Mission Impossible is showing on ABC-HD from 8:30-11pm.I will flip back and forth tonight.HBO-HD and SHO-HD have new movies on tonight!Bob,as stated by my previous post,the audio problems occur when it switches to HD.When displaying 4.3,the audio works great and even seems to have a volume increase from what had been broadcast earlier in the week.Bruce,I have tested my tiVo audio with the HD on screen it seems to be off a second or two.Lip sync my not be a problem since the announcers are on screen very little during the actual game.I HOPE I DON'T NEED TO USE IT THAT WAY!

So far, so good. WOLO-DT 5.1 sound and 4:3 upconvert playing flawlessly on the Madden Special.

Let's pray it stays this way for the big game.

Go Gamecocks!

Just got back from Fedex Station with a Spare ABC HD receiver, So I think we'll have the SB unless the transmitter dies..
Have switched audio outputs, so let me know if tonight is any better..
I find it very,very interesting that the receiver has been fine on EVERY test
feed this week, yet acts up in primetime..Hmmm...

Thanks, Bob! I will be making sure I tune into ABC tonight to make sure everything is functioning properly. I have a lot of people coming over to the house to watch the game tomorrow.

Take care!

Yep, was fine here too. If tomorrow goes like tonight did we will be in great shape. Thanks to Bob and his crew for fixing the recalcitrant receiver.

Interesting discussion over in Programming about MI's audio. For a long time I thought I had only two channels (never checked the center channel; dialog was fine). But I heard nothing in the surrounds. I missed much of the middle of the movie but later towards the rear I would swear I heard the surrounds kick in so I figured it was just the sound track. My receiver indicated DD5.1 and the green light on the sub was on though that could also be the bass management working. Now I am wondering if my first impression was right and the audio sent out by ABC really was not 5.1.

Bruce,
I can assure you that between 10-11 pm Mission Impossible was in full surround.I had it turned up to reference level.I however have no idea of the audio quality of ABC-HD between 8:30-10:00 pm.All Surrounds were active the hour I listened and volume level was good.I will gladly take the audio from the movie last night for the game today.Great job WOLO-DT!

Rick, thanks for the quick reply! Although we will all be glad when FOX goes to 720p, I would still rather watch widescreen sports than 4:3 any day.

Waiting for SB to start ... hopefully we will not have any problems.

BTW, check out the 3-hour back to back segment on U-Boats and WWII on one of the Discovery feeds ... its going on right now ... sure its not HD ... but you will not regret it. Will keep you busy until kickoff.

Bye.

Thanks for everything, Bob! We have ribs, lobster and crab getting prepared as we speak. Good thing I have a laptop in my media room!

Take care guys! This Falcon fan will be pulling for Tampa Bay. Hell, they are in our division and are in the NFC.

Go Gamecocks!
