Your first issue sounds like Known Issue #12
. Not quite the same, but both seem to be audio decoding errors. Clearly, the audio is being received OK, since it's in the recording. Oh well, at least you have a fairly easy workaround with the Skip Back button.
I've also seen something remotely similar on channel 47.4 in DFW. Occasionally, on a scene with lots of motion, the audio and video will both freeze for several seconds. This happens on both the Pal and my PC. It's as if the MPEG-2 decoder gets overwhelmed and can't keep up! I suspect the station isn't sending out enough I-frames, probably in an attempt to keep the bandwidth down.
I have no idea what issue #2 can be. I've never seen the Pal show a "blue screen," so I suspect that one's part of the broadcast, and the station would have to fix it.
Someone else reported another audio issue recently, and it too was a Fox station. I wonder if Fox stations are upgrading some of their DTV equipment? Here in DFW, Fox-owned My 27 added Movies! and had to dump Fox's "splicer" (it was their third subchannel) although to be fair, they may have dumped the splicer earlier and I'd never have known until they started up Movies!Edited by JHBrandt - 9/1/13 at 7:59pm
