Ok, it is just masking the low-volume problem. Anybody: No adjustable audio pot?
Now, this other problem I have:
I have found this crazy problem of signal levels dropping to 0 and then back up again, all by itself. It is somewhat rare, but I did witness one time while I had the meter onscreen and actually saw the signal level crash to 0!
When grabbing and slowly wiggling the coax/RF connector, the audio blanks-out in just a fraction of a second, with video breakup. I just tried it with WRLM with a signal level of 60. Wiggling the coax/RF connector, I got the level to drop into the 30s/40s with video blocking/breakup.
I had this box apart and looked for a 'bad' solder joint some time ago. Did not see anything obvious. I will look at it again someday.
I believe this problem existed since day one. At first, I thought it was the connector or coax. After swapping the RG6 cable and then replacing coax connectors, the problem remains. It is definitely this DigitalStream DTX9950.
