    Was the sound all horked up for anyone else tonight? We had to watch with CC on because the dialogue was inaudible.

    Sound was fine. Closed captioning, however, was extremely sporadic -- no more than 25% of the dialogue was displayed. :(

    Maybe it was just the Fox affiliate in Hartford that was messed up. Bummer.

    Black Canary probably blew out your speakers in the opening scene.

    Fox would have a hard time with a new CW show ;):D

    My local CW HD feed was screwed up for this too - and I'm pretty sure it was CW and not my HD TiVo, because this show is the only one that was screwed up and I've seen the same problem during an episode of Gossip Girl (which was "fixed" when the feed dropped to SD). Audio was clear, but well out of sync with video. It's incredibly annoying - and only CW seems to have this problem.

    I had a couple of sound issues with my DirecTV feed, but nothing I wouldn't chalk up to DTV's usual issues.

    I haven't watched yet, but sounds like the local CW in these parts.

    They constantly have problems with Smallville in HD.
    Nothing at all, picture or sound, upconverted SD not HD, no sound, out of sync sound, every week this happens.

    I'm glad Smallville is first, so they can get the problems fixed before Supernatural airs.

    I don't know if it's just Smallville that perplexes them so much, or every 7pm primetime program that's in HD, as Smallville is the only one I TiVo.

    I was watching in old school SD so it wasn't an HD problem for me.

    It really looks like they could spin a Juniors series off of this if they wanted to. That might be interesting.

    Watching it now on DirecTV 385. No problem other than The CW Washington doesn't deliver the show in window box format like The CW Baltimore did. I'll reserve judgement on the show itself until later.

    I thought Dinah Lance was much more attractive than Black Canary. The punk blonde cut and painted mask didn't work for me.

    Although I frequently lament the fact that better than half the world's women seem to be bottle blondes these days, my opinion runs counter to yours in this case. I did find myself wondering what Chloe's natural colour was, however. I know Allison Mack is German, so she may be a natural blonde, but Chloe on the other hand...

    Could still be an HD problem.

    I know WLWC-CW28 in Providence RI downconverts the HD signal for the SD transmitter/cable feed.

    I wasn't watching intently as I was TiVo'ing it at home for later viewing, but it didn't seem there was any audio problems.

    I was thinking the same thing. Have Chloe's eyebrows always been that dark? Kinda ruins the look.
