Chris, you asked,
"... a few weeks ago(I) tried to record the bad and campy "Return to the Batcave". I recorded off the air so I didn't watch it, but was KENS way off of audio sync. Just wondered if anyone else has been having the same sync problems lately."
Actually, we WERE out of sync for a few days on KENS-HD, following a major power changeover here. We installed a flywheel UPS over a weekend, and all our studio equipment was off line for about six hours. When we woke everything up again, some of the hardware was cranky and wouldn't run right; some of the software forgot its more interesting settings, like internal and external delays.
I think we have reconciled the lip-sync problem since then.
As far as recording from KSAT, I'd ask them if they have switched on Redistribution Control in their PSIP. That's just a guess on my part, but if they have, it MIGHT inhibit your ability to record material from KSAT. We have not enabled this feature, and you appear to be able tpo record from KENS-DT just fine, right?
Anyway, thanks for asking, and thanks for your interest in the planet's most colossal science project!
