Panasonic DMR-ES25S volume issue.

I just searched the forum but couldn't find anything on this issue.

I just purchased my 1st DVD recorder to record TV shows off my Atlantic Scientific HD DVR. My 1st go around in recording resulted in decent picture quality but not so good audio quality. When I replay the DVD the volume is on the low side.

I have the DVR hooked up to my TV via HDMI cable and to my receiver using a optical cable. The DVD recorder is hooked up to the DVR using standard audio/video (R/W/Y) cable.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Well, the DVR may have a low audio output. I'm a little unclear, is your problem just volume or also quality? If it is just volume, theoretically you can turn it up. Unless it is really crazy low. But most receivers can overcome when a DVD is set lower than others. If it was just TV speakers, that might be different.

Check the settings on your Panasonic. What I like about my Panasonic home theater system, is that their DVD players usually have a dynamic range compression feature. Maybe yours is activated?

The volume "quality" is fine its just low. I was wondering if there was a setting or something that I missed.

I will definately check for that setting tonight and make sure mine is deactivated. Thanks!

No problem. Also, if you're new-ish to having a home theater system, what may be going on, is that when movies are at their loudest points (action scenes, whatever), this is what you may be setting as your peak volume so you don't disrupt anybody else, or so you don't blow out your ears later on. So if this is the case, just talking or whatever, may just sound really really low for you. This is also pretty common. These Panasonics also have some function I believe that will boost the center channel so the vocals stand out more during a movie. BUT, if you're looking for a good compromise on both ends, the dynamic range compression is your best bet still (that is if you have it).
