Audio & Picture issues with NBC HD Broadcasts

Anyone else see a lot of issues with NBC's HD channel?  They always seem to have common audio dropouts at times and pixelation issues on most of their programs, especially on "The Voice".  I am in the Austin area, so the local NBC affiliate is KXAN.  This really seems like an NBC issue and not Uverse/equipment since I only see these problems on NBC in HD on both my main 8010 DVR and wireless STB.

 

 

Just curious if people in other Uverse markets see/hear the same issues when watching NBC in HD?

No NBC audio issues in the DFW area, either local or national broadcasts.

Reboot your system, including your RG, if you haven't done so in awhile.

Re: Audio

I just got a new wireless gateway and a GPONG installed. How do I reboot the entire system?

Have you contacted the station?  Might be something to do as they don't want an inferior signal to Uverse users. They might not be aware of the problems.

 

As you stated, don't think it is Uverse equipment either or other stations would be doing similar things and are not.  Good luck Smiley Wink

To do a whole house reboot.

Unplug the RG and DVR and STB(s)and any WAP for wireless receiver(s), wait 30 seconds and plug the RG back in.

When that turns all green, then plug the DVR back in and wait until it reboots. Then if there is a WAP, plug it in and let it turn green.

Then plug in the STB(s), wait til it reboots and see if it fixes NBC PQ.
