While "no dialog" may have local causes at times, it
DOES happen as a result of mistakes at the transmitter
end, too. The last couple of episodes of CSI (LV)
have begun with no dialog for the first 3-5 minutes.
Then someone at the station flips a switch and the
dialog magically appears. This affects only the HDTV
transmission, the analog broadcast is unchanged.
Then there's the local PBS station, KQED. Since I
installed 0.17 the sound for KQED has stopped
completely. I discovered that Myth is choosing the
wrong sound channel by default, and that I can get
KQED sound to work by pressing "+" on the keyboard to
choose a different sound stream.
I assume, like other 0.17 problems, this has been
fixed in CVS but will not be added to the 0.17
