Screeeeeeech when switching to a commecial

Occasionally (specifically on MSNBC) when a commercial comes on, I get a very very loud screech. Not all commercials but enough to freak me out..

 

anyone else?

That can occur as the channel switches audio formats between the program and the commercial.  There is a setting you can change on the STB (search the forums for "loss of sound" issues with STB's) and make the same suggested changes.  The change will cause the STB to do the signal re-encouding on the box before sending it to the TV and hopefully get past the issue.

 

Here's a thread which discusses making the necessary changes (ravioli, my alter ego):
