Same Deal here

Using 512tk and I think TOS is bundling the ticks. I see many more candles with NT than TOS. Time of sales match so one can only assume it's bundled ticks by TD/TOS.

I've been using TOS for sometime but wanted to look at volume at the bid/ask so I'm trying Ninjatrader. I have TOS tick charts at 133 ticks with Better Volume and they seem to work well but volume is pretty consistent.
When I load the same 133 tick chart in Ninjatrader it's not even close. To get close I have to use a 40 tick chart and the volume bars are comparable but Ninjatrader has some bars that go much higher. I think the Ninjatrader volume is more accurate but I'm really not sure. The better volume bars also do not line up between the two so I don't know which might be right.
Anyone with any insight regarding this.

And I'm using Interactive Brokers for my data feed.
