    I have locals through DircTV.
    For the past few weeks, every program recorded on ABC has distorted audio.
    All other channels are fine.

    Has anyone else seen this?

    What area are you in?

    I'm in the NYC area. ABC audio is not distorted, but it's at a lower level than nearly every other channel, and that has been the case for years.

    I'm in northwestern IL. I'm not sure if we get ABC out of Rockford, or the Quad Cities. I'll have to check.

    I called DTV and got the old "Did you make sure your connections are good?"

    If it's just a problem on that one station, then it's almost certainly a problem with the local broadcaster and their feed to DirecTV. Contact the local station.

    I was just noticing the same thing on my ABC local out of Cedar Rapids the other night. What I have been experiencing is almost akin to "flutter" like on a casette tape. It only happens on this station so i doubt my Tivo itself has anything to do with the problem.

    I know one of the engineers at the station and he assures me there's a clean audio signal going to the fiber used to link the signal to Directv.
