Not that i watch it anyway, but it is sort of hard to potentially watch any station that doesn't have audio
We have been working with DirectTV and Echostar on issue that they have been having with interruptions of audio on their up links and OTA set-top tuners.
Our research has shown that both have problems with decoding audio when the stream has a large number of null packets.
Unfortunately due to the method we are using to multiplex the WBRL-HD and KZUP-SD streams on the digital STL, both have a significant amount of null packets OTA.
This does not appear to effect the majority of TV 8VSB tuners but does effect the set-tops of both DirectTV and Dish Network.
To correct this issue we would need to decode and re-encode both stations at the transmitter site.
The equipment to accomplish this is extremely expensive.
