Had a Bell Tech at the house today to replace my legacy SW44/SW44A switch combo with a DPP Quad. Pretty good service, I called in a problem yesterday (Sunday) and they were at my house the next morning and on a holiday! They waived the $75 service call fee too.

He mentioned there was a 9500 receiver showing up in their system. It wasn't available to anyone and he had little information other than "built in Wi-Fi". Just wondered if anyone had heard of a new receiver - I assume a PVR?

Had Bell upgrade me to a quad 9500 & 7500 whole home. The 9500 seems to have a problem processing the audio. The audio levels jump up and down mid scene of a program, and not in say a transition with music background. I know that the channels have limiters so this should not happen, as well as the matrix setting, having worked there. So i started checking different combinations between the TV and the PRV setting, Dolby Digital/PCM, surround sound settings. All combos, same problem, even records that way. Anyone else having similar problems?
No I am only referring to program audio. I used to monitor out-going and return broadcast signals. Distribution sets the matrix, ingest downloads to the server and I had to monitor. In addition, due to complains to the CRTC limiters were installed to prevent 5.1 dynamic commercial audio from giving the appearance as being louder using the older Vu monitoring system, which were replaced with 5.1 range scopes.
What I referring to is the audio of program will suddenly jump in volume or drop down. This happens regardless of what the background audio is or if it is in a scene transition. Including on PVR recordings.
The 9500 PVR and television are match for digital/PCM. Have tried changing the setting to see if it would make a difference, it did not.
Presently i am trying to see if the problem is on one or both turners, by recording two shows at the same time.
The only thing left would be the turner does no process the audio correctly.
Testing with stations i know use the limiters i worked with in the the past.
FYI not mentioning the stations / or brand of limiters we used.
