I have been recording the Handmaids Tale on CH4-HD and just getting round to watching it.
The audio is appalling, I have to turn on the subtitles to follow it.
My box is connected to AV receiver with various Digital Audio proceesing options.
Tried straight, and bog standard Stereo pus all the normal surround de-coding options. Switching to mono doesn't help seeming to indicate the broadcast is double mono with a short time delay between the two giving a horrible echo effect. Once the ads come on all is clear irrespective of the amp settings.
Thinking of a complaint to Channel 4 and OFCOM, but would love to know if anyone else has noticed the issue.
