TCM "The Fugitive" - no dialogue

I have twice recorded the film "The Fugitive" on TCM recently. On both occasions, the film played with no dialogue. There was background sound and music, but no speech. It is like TCM put on the wrong version - ready to have dialogue dubbed over the top

Is there any way to contact Virgin / TCM to let them know?

Re: TCM "The Fugitive" - no dialogue

Can you also include which channel this was on, as there are 3 TCM channels

Hi, do you know if it was ok when watching live?  Can you remember when it was on?

Re: TCM "The Fugitive" - no dialogue

I don't think watching live would have helped. I think the problem is with the version of the film TCM is broadcasting. I have recently recorded other things on TCM with no problem.

I assume they are broadcasting a version of the film which is designed to have the dialogue added over the top (original English or dubbed foreign language), but that isn't happening

Re: TCM "The Fugitive" - no dialogue

That's why I was wondering if it did it when watching it live.  If there was no dialogue watching it live then its probably broadcaster issue but if it was ok live but missing voice on recordings then it may be a software/encryption issue.

Re: TCM "The Fugitive" - no dialogue

Hi!

I recorded "The Fugitive" on Thursday 9th April, TCM HD, channel 416,

There was no dialogue, but music and sound effects were OK - if anything, louder than usual.

I had no opportunity to watch the film live.

Re: TCM "The Fugitive" - no dialogue

Hi,

Sounds like TCM screwed up again, a few months ago they repeatedly showed the Hitchcock movie "Strangers on a Train" with the sound several minutes out of synch. I contacted them via their Facebook page "TCM Movies UK" and they apologised and said it would be fixed for next broadcast and it was.

Re: TCM "The Fugitive" - no dialogue

Hi!

I tried a simultaneous recording of the May 15th transmission of "The Fugitive". The HD transmission had no dialogue but the standard definition transmission had dialogue.

The problem is with the HD transmission.
