Hi, I'm trying to stream the last episode of Chernobyl on my PC (episode 5) and the audio is...wrong. I don't know how to describe it but it sounds slowed down and altered, and downright creepy. Either way, this isn't the case for the other episodes, or for any other show on HBO/xfinity as they played fine. Plus, this only occurs during the episode itself when the dialogue starts (approximately 4 minutes in). The audio for the advertisement in the beginning plays fine. Finally, the same thing also happens when I tried it on a different device, so I don't believe it is a hardware issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Edited to add I’m streaming On Demand through my cable box (not via HBO Go but through Comcast) and nothing else is impacted. Tried restarting cable box, deleting and restarting episode etc but seems like steam is corrupted at the source.
I’m having the same issue. Starts while music is playing during swimming pool scene in opening sequence in Pripyat. Sound is very slow to the point of being unintelligible, too soft and obviously out of sync with video.
Well, just got off the phone with Comcast -- you know that's a treat -- finally received word that engineers are aware of the problem (they need to hit button 5 folks... a bit of humor for those of us who have watched episodes 1-4). The more people that call the better -- ask for compensation as well.
