Is there anything in the PAL that can mess up and cause captions to go nuts? I'm talking the beginnings of some words mixed into the ends of others, gaps where there are no captions at all, 2 sentences partially combined with each other, etc. It's only happening on the CW station during prime time as far as I can tell. I have one hooked up to a digital TV, and the other 2 are still analog TVs. I called the local CW station, and they are blaming my equipment, telling me when they watch OTA in the evening, there's nothing wrong with the captions. The woman even turned on one of the same shows I recorded this week, and watched it for a few minutes, and told me there was nothing wrong.
If it's the DVRs, I would think it would be happening on all the channels I watch, not just channel 50. I'm really desperate to figure out why I can't read the captions anymore, so any suggestions would be appreciated.
