Discovery HD Audio Drop-outs

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
I've noticed a lot of audio drop-outs over the last few days and now I realize it was always Discovery HD. Is anyone else noticing this? Is this possibly something that I can control/fix?

I've had a ground "pop" come from the subs while watching Discovery theater but no full drop outs.

I also have a lot of audio dropouts while watching Discovery HD. My provider is D* and I have the H20 set top box. No audio dropouts with any other channels.

The audio drop-outs and subwoofer channel "pops" should be resolved. Please report if you still hear problems, and let us know time of day or in which show you heard the problem.

Thanks.

Noticed audio dropouts while watching "Crocodile Hunter" on 7/19 on Comcast. It's been consistent across all programming, or whatever I've watched, for the last couple of weeks or so.

I'm on Comcast, and I noticed drop outs last night during Extreme Machines. Oddly enough, the voice tracks were gone (couldn't hear anyone speaking) but I did hear sounds coming from the surrounds.

DirectTV, Hughes HD tuner, solid signal strength.

Constant dropouts last night on TNT-HD; at the end of that Stephen King thing, around 10:55PM EDT, no kidding, it dropped every 10-15 seconds for a couple minutes.

Of course, as soon as I called up the 'current signal strength' meter, nothing dropped out.

I get picture breakup and audio dropout with Discovery HD, INHD, and TNTHD. Discovery has been the worst of late. Which is odd because when I first got it in the beginning of June it was the least likely to have problems. ESPN2 HD had just come on and was terrible, but is rock solid now.

Of course, for me it's primarily due to signal strength. My signals waffle between 28-35 SNR. Closer to 35 is great. Around 30 and below, I have breakups every minute. Discovery is usually around 30, unfortunately.

I've had a truck come out. They replaced the splitter right outside my home, and said they need to do something with the line/connection at the street but haven't done anything since. It's been weeks; I gotta call them again.

Edit: I have Comcast in Maryland (Anne Arundel Co.). Verizon just laid down fiber in my neighborhood. I'm waiting patiently for FIOS TV to come up so I can take a gander.

Can we stick to Discovery HD audio drop out issues since DTTC is trying to help?

Please read the thread title. I presume DTTC works at DTHD so don't bring up any other channel that is not DiscoveryHD Theater to help him narrow down the problem

audio drop outs last night during the Corwin Experience. I don't remember the times. each drop out was only for a second or so, just enough to miss a word of speech at a time.

Glad it's not just my system. When watching Discovery HD I frequently lose audio for a split second, and my receiver lights up telling me it lost audio before it goes back to Dolby 5.1. Seems to happen throughout the evening, maybe once every 3-5 minutes...

Experienced multiple audio drop outs on 100 Greatest Disoveries last night (8/2) around 10:30pm PST ( E* and 622).
post #22 of 45
A second cause of the audio drop out problem has been identified. We expect to have it resolved no later than Tuesday 8/8/06.

Thanks DTTC,

Good to hear that. Please keep up the good work. And let's hope that there is no third cause

Work is complete. Drop-out problem should be resolved.
post #25 of 45
Just found this thread. I've been experiencing the audio pops through my sub only when watching Discovery HD. So, I did a search on the forum. The last post on this thread was in August and said the problem was resolved. Is anyone else still having this problem?
post #26 of 45
I still get occasional dropouts of less than half a second.
post #27 of 45
I was getting the drop outs on one of the "Greatest 100 Discoveries" shows a few days ago.
post #28 of 45
I am getting the half second drop outs on "Sunrise Earth" and the Sunday morning operas and most Discovery HD programs from Comcast here in MA
post #29 of 45
I get the subwoofer pops all the time, it's when they are feeding DD 2.0. I only get them if I have my HDDTiVo output digital sound, if I change it to output Standard Audio, I don't get it anymore.

Lots of dropouts during Franklin's Lost Expedition last night. Excellent show, BTW.
