I'm getting bad audio static/crackling on some Cinemax channels. The Thing and Cronicles of Riddick were both almost unwatchable. Crackling seems to be correlated with loud soundtrack passages, even if I have the overall volume pretty low. I don't think it's my system because Blurays and other channels are OK...even at very loud volume. DVR reset doesn't help.
I've confirmed that my brother, who is on a non-Verizon cable system, also has the same audio problems with Cinemax. I suspect that the problem is either in the feed from Cinemax or some conversion that Verizon is doing, but don't have any way to test this. I also don't see a way to contact Cinemax for help.
Does anyone have any ideas on resolving this issue?
Am on dish network, getting the same issue exclusively on cinemax. Thought it was all sorts of things till I took note that this was only occuring on cinemax. So how do we go about getting this addressed ? Drop Cinemax for showtime ?
