    I watched this last Tues and the sound gave me a headace. It was very spatial with dialogue not going to the centre speaker. I went to watch it tonight (Sun) on Sky Mix and it's the same. Anybody else notice this or is it just a problem I'm having?

    I didn't watch it, but from your descriptions it appears that the stereo was transmitted in anti-phase.

    This does happen occasionally, as a monitoring person can view dozens of pictures at once, but only listen to one programme at a time!

    It was out of phase. It was really disappointing - had I been at work I could have corrected it manually, but the only thing I could do was mono my box to get everything from the centre channel (instead of speaking coming from behind me - very odd!). Even after it had been monod, it was crap because alot of the sound cancels itself out. Am seriously considering writing to sky - only a few weeks ago they screwedup the TX of 24 and cropped it to 4:3.

    I guess they received a problem tape and it was dubbed onto their playout system with the error - hence the repeat also had the same problem. Lets hope part two doesn't have the same problem eh?

    Good idea, but if lots of viewers noticed (which I very much doubt), Sky will know already.

    I bet if you phone them, they'll deny all knowledge! :devil:

    (Many years ago, episodes of Crossroads were transmitted in the wrong order.

    Apparently only 4 people complained. :rotfl: )

    IMHO I really think Sky just don't care. My expieriences with them over the years has led me to believe that they think everyone is an idiot. Just look at how many people on forums, this and others, are fed up with the quality, service etc..

    The only reason they are still in business must be because without Sky, TV would not be worth having. Alright I suppose now that E4 is free it might be just worth it, not me personally I would think about scrapping the TV and sticking with my projector, so there user base is big enough for them to carry on with no competition. But I think there junk.

    I thought it was meant to be like that...alternate universe and all that... :suicide:
    The voices were the only thing that weren't right...everything else sounded finr to me...including the theme tune, which is what got me thinking that was how it was meant to sound. :confused:

    exactly as i did, and for the same reason of the universe thing :). As you say, everything else was right.

    oh well, lets hope they get tomorrow nights sorted, or i really will be pi**ed.

    Has anyone here contacted them, to be assured tomorrow's should be ok?

    - i thought about phoning them myself, but would probably only get to speak to a call-centre muppett, who a) wouldnt have that information anyway, and b) couldnt care less.

    That is true,. I hadn't even thought about that. But did it have to be so hard to listen to?

    My sound was fine tonight, even the review of last weeks at the start was fine.
