Interesting note re: audio drop out on R15
Posted 26 December 2012 - 09:55 AM
Since the official release of performances is not including all the material, at least material I'm interested in, I wanted to go ahead, glitch or not, and do a save off the DVR. I don't have a video capture card on the PC, so for now went ahead using the old VHS recorder as a storage medium. When I did playback from the DVR, the audio was perfect throughout.
I'm not sure what causes the glitch in real time, but is it possible that the circuitry in the DVR corrects any errors on the fly, and ends up with a better playback?
At least I saved the performances I wanted to intact. I'll save it on DVR should I get a video capture card at a later date.....

If anyone has the technical aspects of what is happening, do share. I hope it's something that a software upgrade will eventually correct.

Do you have some manner of surround sound on your TV setup?

It's a pretty basic setup. The RG6 goes to the DVR, an S-Video cable to the TV, RCA for audio to the TV; also RCA audio & video to the VCR, and a set of RCA audio to the Nakamichi receiver to pipe sound into the big stereo speakers. No surround system. While it doesn't drop out on all channels/transponders it doesn't make me think that changing the RCA from the DVR to the TV would do anything. Wondering if somehow the TV audio section can't keep up with the audio it's being fed under some conditions? The TV is about 10 years old, a fine Sony CRT that otherwise is an excellent set for its era. Someday (the way budget is going, about the day pigs fly) a flat panel larger system. Until then....
