Re: Audio Issues on Some Channels

Hi Community! Lovely day we're having here. I hope you're all doing well!

 

If you're having audio issues such as the ones above on a specific channel, I'd like to run some tests on your equipment and submit an escalation if need be.

 

Please PM us @CommunityHelps for help with this. If you're not familiar with our PMing process, you can find instructions here.

 

Regards,

What is with the volume on this channel? RT has a 30% louder audio signal than the rest of the boxes, let alone it is the worst channel for actual news since it is a Russian propaganda feed. Replace it with a real news channel please!

When I sent the following regarding the PCM Issue about a month ago to OOTP, I received a callback and the CSR confirmed that Rogers were aware of audio issues, one of which is PCM, and one of which is the fact that some channels are significantly louder than others. The difference for me is very noticeable when I watch the news at 11PM and switch between Global 517 (quiet) CTV 518 (medium), City 519 (Loud).

This may be the reason that they switched to PCM for a lot of channels, or perhaps that's related to bandwidth issues - not sure.

 

This is certainly something that Rogers is aware of, but seems to be taking a long time to fix for whatever reason.

 

Note that some TVs have a user menu option under "audio" that can help to "equalize" the volume on the TV, thereby minimizing the impact.  Also, setting the audio output in the Rogers box to "narrow" may help somewhat too.  For those audiophiles with AVRs, the issue is more difficult to solve while maintaining the optimum audio quality.
