Comcast Channel 104

My wife and I were watching “Desperate Housewives” in high-def. Wonderful, except that the audio kept skipping. So, at the end of the show when it became unbearable, I called Comcast. Lo-and-behold, a person answered the phone and, the second I said something about skipping audio, asked “Channel 104?” I allowed as to how it was, indeed, channel 104. She informed me that they were working on it. No ETA on a solution. She did apologize. But sheesh. How hard is this stuff? I mean, it’s not like it’s an OS or anything. 🙂

    "Desperate Housewives"?!? Was the video scrambled too, or did you pay the $7.95? I’ll bet you could get a deeper discount if you ordered "Desperate Housewives 1-17" all at once 🙂

  2. One of us needs to watch more television and I don’t think it’s me. 🙂

    I think the problem has to do with the digital feed. We have Charter digital cable (no HDTV) and we have enough audio problems for it to be noticeable. The problems tend to happen on a channel change though, not during a show.

    Comcast had a lot of problems this weekend, Yesterday I woke up went out sleepily and turned on the the TV, went to pull up the guide and realized something was wrong, Did I wake up too early? Or was this some cruel joke? I thought times changed next weekend. I went and checked my computer as Windows has always been my chief informer of when Daylight savings time happened. Hmmm, is it me or is this a bug in XP SP2 where it didn’t change times. Look at clock on cell phone, it matches XP, finally I called a friend to make sure I wasn’t nuts, but Comcast aparently decided it was daylight savings times yesterday.
