I was wondering if some other people in NYC with home theaters would be able to help me out. I'm having a problem with the stereo balance on certain channels of my Time Warner digital cable. It's been going on for about a year now (on and off). At first, I think it was always there on my MTV but now it's changed to NBC as well. That was in March of 2003 and it's still here. It is too right heavy and has never gone away. I have tapes from around that time with the same problem. At this point, it's happening on a multitude of channels. E! at the moment ONLY has sound coming out of the right speaker. CBS is very left-heavy. AbC is a bit left heavy. And then other channels are touch and go. What I noticed is that if you unplug the cable from the box and plug it right into the recorder and let it do the decoding, everything is fine (except for NBC, which still has a little problem). I can't get that many channels but the ones that I do get are totally fine. No imbalance and they sound great. I speak with Time Warner and they think I'm crazy. They've sent people out and they can't hear it but they're all pretty much deaf. I'm a sound engineer and I've actually looked at the sound waves from the DVD's I've burned and they all have the problems I'm looking at. It's not the set-up. I am using the analog outs on the back of my cable box and even using the digital out, you get the same results. Does anyone have ANY idea what could be causing this??? Any assistance would be appreciated. I'd love to know what to tell their engineers.
