I have 2 DVRs (yes, I'm an addict) and taped the show on both of them. One had the voices missing and the other one didn't, FWIW. My "HD" DVR seems to have weird problems like that more often than my older non-HD one.

In cable issues you need to isolate , in this case, sound sources and outputs, need to check settings on tv , on box, on surround system, etc Besides, and i accept, that most electronics arent all that dinosaur friendly anymore.


As to problem being widespread i agree and i m not referring to exactly the issue here, but on many similar threads where the equipment is always an easy target. Many times the end user was unable to troubleshoot the issue.

They are not going to be able to go to WBTV station to trouble shoot this.
They have people who do this and this could have been a network issue since it is apparent on this thread that it was widespread.

I was a broadcast tech for 20 years.

I have been following this thread to see if something became apparent.

At this point, it appears that there was a problem at the broadcasting-source, but it might be a transmission problem, connected with the satellite. Network shows are sent up to satellite transponders. Whether you get the show via satellite, cable or the local station, THEY get the show via satellite transmission.

There are a lot of permutations of those 2 potential problems, but I don't want to bore anyone stiff.

Sunny - I so agree! I suspect that if the analog channel of WBTV had no sound problem and the digital version did have the sound problem, that the origin of it arose at WBTV. I'd be willing to bet that if a Dish Network HDTV tuner and a Time Warner HDTV tuner were recording that episode of "Criminal Minds" as a digital signal, they both would have experienced the "dialogue dropout problem.

Dawn - If you missed most of that episode of CM, you can go to watch it on CBS.com on your computer. Sometimes they don't list episodes that are less than 2 weeks old, but they will eventually come up! All is not lost!
