Has anyone else noticed some really weird sounds on the Bell Global HD Ontario airing of House on Monday evenings (8:00 pm)? It sounds like ocean waves in the background, but they're really loud.

It almost sounds like the microphones were set to auto, searching for sound during quiet segments, I know it is very annoying.

This is happening on a number of Global shows and is very annoying particularlly when we are stuck with watching two channels with the same program. It is on east and west feeds as I believe all the network programing originates from the same control room.

This can happen when gain and/or compression levels are set too high. It's a sign of either poor equipment or improperly adjusted equipment, usually at the broadcast end.
