Poor sound on some channels

Some of my channels have poor audio quality on them. I don't really know how to describe it. It almost is like a whistling sound,especially when some says an "s" in a word. Very annoying and really hard to listen to. Any suggestions?

Remove the coaxial cable and try the composite cable connection.

Is this on all of your TV's connected to U-verse?  

 

Is the audio on the U-verse box set to Stereo or Surround Sound?  

 

How are the U-verse boxes connected to your TV's?

Are you able to connect your TV's with either composite cables (red, white, yellow), component cables (red, green. blue) or HDMI cables?

You will also get stereo audio when using the red and white connections.

I noticed the sound sounds terrible on a couple HD channels I was watching today. This was the first time I experienced this. It sounded like it was echoing.

If you have an HDTV and subscribe to HD service, you need to use either HDMI or component cables.  Composite cable does not transmit HD.  If you use HDMI, it will carry picture and sound.  If you use component cables (3 for video), you will also need R/L audio cables.
