No voices are playing in cloud DVR streams - part 2
In May, I made a post about the voice audio track missing from many of my shows when I stream them from the cloud. I spent a couple months talking to techs to try getting this issue fixed. Then, most of the shows I watch went on Summer break. Now that they are returning for the fall, this bug is rearing its ugly head again.
The problem is with the cloud recordings of shows on The CW network (and CBS previously, which owns The CW). So far, the recordings on CBS have been streaming fine with the newest episodes this season. However, shows on The CW, like Flash and Black Lightning, are missing the voice track still. I can hear all the other sounds but not the voices. If I switch on "secondary audio" then I can hear the voices but all the other sounds get tuned off.
It doesn't matter what device I stream to or what internet connection I'm on. The voices are just gone as soon as they are recorded on the cloud. I can still play the shows on my X1 DVR with the voices intact because they are recorded on the DVR's hard drive. But once the DVR is replaced by a new one that has to pull the shows from the cloud, the voices no longer play on the DVR either.
Eventually, the Xfinity techs told me this is an issue with the networks and that the networks would have to fix it. They said they would report it to the networks. If this is true, is there someone who can report this to The CW techs? I stream a lot of shows from devices other than my TV so it's frustrating when I can't watch them when I want to.
