WB audio problems

When I watch Angel or Enterprise on the WB, the audio cuts out in a strange way. It will be in stereo and then suddenly it will go to something like mono. Then a moment later back to stereo. This seems to happen when the camera view changes.

It's really bad when I'm watching Enterprise, so bad I cannot watch that show anymore. It happens a little bit during Angel, but not nearly as bad as Enterprise.

This happens on all the TVs I own. I subscribe to Comcast cable. I haven't tried hooking up a pair of rabbit ears yet to determine if this is a problem with the cable. All the other channels work fine.

Anyone else experience this problem?

Considering Enterprise is on UPN and Angel is on WB and it happens on all of your TVs, sounds like a problem with the Cable.

Are these programs on the same channel in your area? In most cases UPN and WB would be different affiliate channels.

Boy, of all the lame excuses for not watching Enterprise.

Iíve heard of places where WB and UPN are on the same local.

It sounds like a marginal signal, and Iím assuming youíre not on cable. If you are, call and bitch.

yes, both networks are on the same channel. I will bitch to comcast. Actually, I am considering switching to the Dish. I'm just really annoyed about this audio problem and all the stupid anti-sattellite ads.

To be honest, I really don't miss watching Enterprise.

My DirecTV goes up tomorrow. W00t!

On my Comcast, I have frequent problems with SciFi dropping the signal for maybe Ĺ minute. Not a great loss, but now itís happening on FX. And, as Murphy would dictate, always during a critical scene, NEVER during commercials.

Itís funny: my dish donít look nowhere near as big as the ones they use for the anti-satellite ads.
