CBS audio issues, am I the only one?

Everything I record on CBS, and only CBS, has audio issues, sound doesn't match up. No other cable service is having this issue, so I can only guess has to be something with Xfinity.

@hevy Is this happening on a specific program on CBS, or just anything that is appearing on the channel at that time? Also, have you tried using the Xfinity app to do any troubleshooting? There is a restart option for your equipment if needed.

@XfinityShawn​ Only on all CBS recordings. Though I do not know if it is still happening, I will attempt to record something tomorrow.

Gotcha! So the issue still persists. No issues with live TV on CBS?

I have been having issues with CBS audio for several years. Not streaming or recording programs but live broadcast. The audio levels between programming and commercials is ridiculously out of whack. All networks boost audio levels for commercials using compression. It is SOP in the industry. But on CBS the level difference can be from listenable level to incredibly loud when commercial starts and even more confusing the next commercial may be inaudible. It sometimes leads to me not watching CBS. It it frustrating having to ride the remote volume control constantly. No other network or channel has this issue.

@user_o699df that would be pretty frustrating and if I were in your shoes I would be just as upset. This sounds like a network problem but we can still help do our part in troubleshooting. Have you done any troubleshooting on your end?

I am having similar issues with CBS (and only CBS) with the picture freezing briefly and sound getting out of sync.  Have done system refresh with no change.  When I switch over to a digital antenna the problem does not occur.  Please help.
