Ok, so my problem is that depending on what I'm watching,either television or dvd/blu-ray, my audio levels are different without changing any settings. My television is louder than my dvds and blu-rays. I have a Panasonic 50" Plasma 720p HDTV. Hooked to that via hdmi cables are both my cable box and my Magnavox NB500MG1F blu-ray player. From the television via an optical cable my audio is routed to a RCA RT2770 home theater system. I don't use the television speakers as they cause an echo, but while watching cable the hts is kept between 20-25. Then when I put in a movie, I have to crank the hts up to 41 which is max. Even then, if the characters whisper, it is hard to hear them. I could go back to rca cables or even component cables and get louder volume, but I enjoy being able to just have one remote and not have to get up to swith the hts setting when switching between a movie or regular television. Can anyone explain why the difference in volume levels without changes made to any settings?
