is anyone else experiencing very quick audio dropouts on some stations on live tv. Or is it just me? They are just blips but they are there. Anyone else, or any answers? Thanks.
That is a little odd. Does this occur on all channels or just on one? How is the digital box currently connected to the TV, HDMI or Component? Also is it direct to the TV or does it connect to a receiver or other audio system first?
What you can try first off, is reseating the cable ends, unplugging off both the digital box and TV, then plug the cable ends back in. See if you continue to notice the audio drops.
Don thank you for answering. I wrote back to your mail this afternoon. But here in a nutshell again, for me it's just happening on just the three main US networks, 4,6, and 7 (CBS, NBC, and ABC). I'm connected to HDMI. Not constantly but at certain times of day/night. All the other channels like CNN, MSNBC, or really any of the other channels it doesn't do it at all.
Been watching CNN a lot lately for long periods of time and it's perfect. I'll turn on say The Tonight Show or any show on Channel 6 and that's when these little blips happen. They aren't even long........they're very quick......and mysterious I guess.
I also have an upstairs tv which this does the same thing on the same channels. Also HDMI. And it's connected to a different box, still Shaw's of course. So I'm guessing it's not the tv's, it might be in the transmission signal maybe? It just seems to be on those three channels and none of the others. Almost I'd say like little "hiccups" for lack of a better word.
Both while watching tv live. Just recently as well. Channel 6 seems to have the most for whatever reason. I'll go check the connections all the same though.
It likely is a signal related problem. There can be some easy fixes so we would like you to try one thing. Pick whichever box you have better access to the cables and check the coax cable that screws into the back.
If you follow that cable to the wall and it goes through a splitter, try bypassing that and hook one cable directly from the wall to the digital box and test the channels again.
If that is already one direct cable unscrew it from both ends for 10 seconds then reconnect it and test it again.
Hopefully one of those steps works, if it does just do that to the other TV as well and we should be good to go!
