Yes, I noticed the 17.x channels have audio issues. Most of the time 17.3 sounds somewhat overdriven, and once in a while I see that on the other 17.x channels. I talked with the Chief Engineer yesterday and asked about the problem and he said he wouldn't be surprised by it happening because he was trying to setup the various channels. He said that when he changes one, then the other goes south and so on. He didn't sound happy about it. He did say he hoped to have the problems all resolved within a few weeks. By the way, I've seen this problem with the TV's that have an ATSC tuner built in so it's not just you and me.
To be honest, I have seen problems with all of the stations of one sort or another. For example I've seen the 17.x stations block up with a 100% signal, I've seen 8.1 have weak audio, and I've seen 13.1 black out, drop audio out, put lines in it.
I don't think any of our local stations have their act totally together yet, but for the most part they seem to be having fewer and fewer problems.
My one big gripe is they don't transmit audio better than the 2.0 standards, what a waste of my Pioneer VSX-1014TX to play back their audio stream. Someday I hope they get the audio better.
