Check to see in audio section of the menu if SAP (secondary audio program) is engaged---this will kill audio only on certain channels.

This feature is also used in many sat or cable boxes so you have to look there also.

My vizio tv is practically brand new as of christmas, when a movie or even tv is on the voices are very soft and the music or background noises are EXTREMELY loud, so I am always turning the volume up and...

I had this problem with my previous TV (Syntax by Olevia, an off brand). It only happened to me on certain channels, and for certain shows. What is happening is the TV station is broadcasting the audio in Dolby 5.1 format. For some stupid reason, the TV is playing the background speakers (effects) instead of the speaking parts. You get a little bleed-over of the voices into the back speakers, so voices are there but really quiet. Unfortunately my TV didn't have any surround sound options to fix this.

See if your TV has a surround sound option. Otherwise, you will need to connect the TV sound output to a surround sound system that can properly decode the audio channels.

Some channel no sound

Hello Blwas5 hi, If some channels have sound and others none, its either the TV has poor reception or, its the channel's weak signal. check them both or see if your neighbors TV acts like yours. If thy neighbor reception is good, then thy TV has poor reception, you can't do anything to fix that. get another TV with good reception qualities.

No sound on certain channels

Hi leelee, some cable and air signal channels have a separate audio program in the signal(commonly known as SAP) it may be that the SAP is activated or turned ON in your TV. This no sound condition only shows up on those channels that have the provision for it, but the signal is not being transmitted, that's why you have no sound on those channels. You will have to look for the sound key on your remote control and deactivated from there, or you might have to actually select the menu and scroll down to audio features, it is sure that you will find the SAP feature turned on. Good Luck

Auto volume has little or no effect on loud commercials

This may not be a problem. I believe there is an audio effect used by video production houses to 'boost' the presence of an ads audio and this effect is not picked up by the electronic device's (in this case TV) volume stabilizing software. It is intentional by the makers of the ads.
A work-around could be to try different configurations on your TV's audio settings, such as just mono, or just 2channel stereo, or surround sound - on or off, increasing/decreasing bass and treble levels in different combinations.
The down-side to this is to get a comfortable, uniform level of volume across the board, you maybe sacrificing some sound quality - but, as with our eyes, our ears adjust well quickly (hence don't listen to too loud sounds) and what you may not like now, will sound ok tomorrow.
I can't tell if there is a fault or not, but this may help if you "trial" some options.
