    No, I wouldn't think that this is 6.3 related.

    Why are there some people on here who refuse to blame 6.3 for these audio problems??

    Maybe because not all of us with 6.3 have these problems?

    It sounds a lot like these problems are actually because of Fox using broken Dolby Digital, if you ask me, since it's almost only Fox networks that have these problems, and only on Dolby Digital mode.

    Ummm, I have reverted back to 3.15f because of the audio problem with 6.3.

    When the poster mentioned Fox News I assumed it was the SD sat channel, where the 6.3 problem shouldn't really be seen.

    6.3 has problems, but not all problems are due to 6.3.

    I assumed you were watching it over the satellite when you first posted. Yes, FOX OTA has shown 6-10 sec audio dropouts with 6.3 that do not occur with 3.15.

    I'm still on 3.5.1f and don't have any of these problems. Plus I've heard plenty of people claim the have the same problem on other channels. Just seems that Fox stations are the worst. 6.3 may not be causing every problems that people are seeing, but it's sure causing a lot of them.

    Oh, that makes sense. The thread title did say Fox News even though it's really about Fox News Sunday on Fox. And it's even digital widescreen.

    I had 6.3 with audio dropouts just about everyday on Fox, ABC, NBC and CBS. I went back to 3.1 and have not had one drop out since. It's 6.3, Directv even admits it. That's why they sent me out a new HR10 with the 3.1 on it.
