WCIA Audio problems

Recently WCIA HD in Champaign IL has been having audio garbled and the picture breaks up on the bottom of screen, any one else having this trouble?

Re: WCIA Audio problems

What is the model number of your receiver.  You'll find it inside the card door.

My receiver is a H21/200.

If all other channels are working properly then the problem is almost surely in the stations transmission.  You might give them a call and speak to the station engineer.

Thank you for the reply. I will try to contact the station and ask them about it.

I'm having trouble too. It's intermittent. No snow or ice on the dish. It will pixelate and sound in and out. Other channels are fine.   Thanks

I have sent WCIA Eng. dept. and email to ask them about the problem. I don't expect a reply until Monday. Thank You for letting me know that you are having the same problem with WCIA.

Re: WCIA Audio problems

I just got a message about WCIA

"We have seen this problem many times in the past and it has always been the DirecTV receiver.  I will be speaking to them about it again this morning.  Thanks for letting us know."

No problem with my receiver. Why do all the other channels work? It was great having intermittent blackouts during the Grammys too.

Thanks

Re: WCIA Audio problems

How can it be the DirecTV Receiver if it only happens on one channel???   99% of the time these problems are caused by issues with the local station's feed to DirecTV, or DirecTV's retransmission of their feed.

Re: WCIA Audio problems

Agreed. It blacked out a couple of times during the Grammys and then

seemed to be ok. I haven't checked today.

Thanks

Re: WCIA Audio problems

I talked to DIRECTV on Monday and they said it was a problem with WCIA. As of today I am no longer having the problem whatever it was has been resolved. Lets hope it stays that way. I have to agree that when it's just one channel its not the receiver.

This problem has been cleared up. WCIA must have fixed it.
