OTA dropouts on 622 input
Posted 14 April 2007 - 06:22 AM
BUT for some reason, my OTA audio levels seem to be much lower that the same Chan received via sat.
(Note: This audio issue is only found when using HDMI. Audio levels are equal when Switching between SAT and OTA while on composite output.)

I've always seen OTA vs satellite volume differences at times. I'd guess this is introduced by E*'s uplink processing. Used to see it with D*, also. It's interesting to see the video delay between OTA and satellite; they must be doing a lot of something to the feed.
The delay is induced in the MPEG encoding process at the uplink and the addition of 44K to 88K miles of signal travel to it to get the uplink and then back to you (including the trip or two to space )

Note that I'm not disagreeing with you, clearly there is processing happening, since the delay caused by the distance only amounts to 250msec per round-trip. Just curious, that's all.
