This not possible on any current model I am aware of, it has been tried in older models but never really worked very well and so the commerial sound adjusting program was dropped years ago.

My volume gets loud for music but soft for dialogue depending on the channel and part of the show/movie


Most of this is how the original material was mixed during production. Commercials are generally broadcast louder than the programming too. Try changing the sound field in the TV menu. Under the "Sound" menu of most TVs there are preset fields that are kind of like EQs. If you have a DVR, try different ones listening to the same show you are having issues with. The adjustments in most TVs are very limited. An external audio source (receiver, HTIB, soundbar) would give you more adjustable.

Sound on my rca tv


I wonder if your problem with loud volume occurs primarily on commercial breaks, when you turn down
the sound and then, since the sound, for the program itself, is so low in volume, you have to turn it way
up again to enjoy the program?

If this is the case, and there are no other problems with the set, this may not be the set's problem, but the
fact that commercial material is broadcast at a higher volume than program material by some outlets, so
that while you are in the kitchen, during commercials, the sound of the commercial can still be heard.

Low volume on some channels


Well, some TV stations do broadcast at different volume levels. This is very noticeable when watching a TV show and the volume seems normal and then when a commercial comes on, the volume is very loud. They do this to get you to pay attention to the commercial. Another problem might be that you are adjusting volume from both your TV and your cable box. What you should do is make sure your cable box is set to "FIXED VOLUME" and then just adjust your TV volume. Fixed volume will have the cable box output only one volume level, letting the TV do the adjustment. Just go through your cable box setting and look in the audio settings. Hope This helps...

Sound Control


unfortunately outside of turning down the volume. there isnt anything you can do. the reason that is is because its the networks own volume preferences that cause that. the only way you can fix is it call them and tell em to turn down the damn commercials. lol. sorry

Try going in the settings and turning off "Steady sound". Or turn the audio setting to stereo, disable surround sound.

Steady Sound
You don't have to listen to commercials at a higher volume than the normal programming. This TV has a volume equalization feature for both program and commercials to enhance your audio entertainment.

TV volume equalizer


Ear-jarring volume discrepancies between television shows and commercials may be a thing of the past if Motley Fool Stock Advisor selection Dolby Labs (NYSE: DLB) persuades TV manufacturers to include its new technology in their sets.
We're all familiar with the phenomenon: We're reclining in our Barcaloungers, calmly watching the late show when a commercial comes on and the volume has suddenly increased 10 decibels, causing us to spill our beer as we jump for the remote control. Dolby says its new Dolby Volume technology will make that rude awakening a thing of the past.
The technology is pretty important for Dolby, because systems incorporating its surround sound technology make the experience that much more jolting when it occurs. It might not be as jarring on your rabbit-ears set in the kitchen, but on that 60-inch plasma screen with five, six, or seven high-def speakers pointed at your cochlea, it can leave your ears ringing.
Dolby will unveil its volume control system at the Consumer Electronics Show Monday in Las Vegas, and the company hopes it will start appearing in television sets by year's end.
The difference in volume occurs because programmers try to compress the sound to boost volume without exceeding the limits the government has set. While most televisions today are equipped with circuits that are designed to stabilize the differences between TV shows and commercials, they are not necessarily effective and can still be problematic if the broadcaster fails to properly operate equipment on its end. Part of the problem: Depending on the type of program a commercial is inserted into, the commercial might actually be broadcast at too low a volume. While viewers might not consider that a problem, advertisers would, so generally, broadcasters transmit the sound all at one level.
Audiovox (Nasdaq: VOXX) recently came out with a device to help minimize sound differences by automatically detecting when a television has gone to commercial and lowering the volume for you. Dolby seems to go one better than this.
First, its technology isn't an external box that needs to be hooked up to the television set. We've already got enough wires crawling from our sets with DVD players, cable boxes, game systems, and whatnot. A sound "equalizer" might just be too much.
Dolby instead offers one chip that would be part of the set's components. (According to some reports, Cirrus Logic (Nasdaq: CRUS) has spoken highly of the development; it may wish to partner with Dolby to put the technology on its chips.) The technology then mimics how the human ear works, and how people perceive changes in loudness because of various factors. Dolby then created formulas to have the technology react to those factors to create a more even experience. It believes it could be applied to MP3 technology as well.
Perhaps another area where it should be investigated is cell phones. Despite advances there, sound quality has never been all that good, but Q Sound Labs (Nasdaq: QSND), another surround-sound developer, is using its MobileQ technology to provide a surround sound experience on close-proximity speakers and headsets. With advertising moving to mobile phones, quashing loud commercials before they begin could be a big seller.
Let's hope Dolby's technology proves popular, if only so that another drop of beer will never be spilled while jumping to turn down an annoying commercial.

WON'T CHANGE CHANNELS ADJUST VOLUME OR SHUT OFF


If the volume buttons work when using the Radio, then the buttons on the Remote are fine.
Now if the volume on your TV is set to MAX and you can barely hear it.
The issue lies with your TV.. ()
Now if I understand correctly or if I am to assume you are using a Reviever.
If the reciever is used for all volumes... If this is the case.
I also assume the volume on the TV Speakers is set to off
Therefore when you use the Radio/DVD the volume control is using the Reciever volume.
and when you switch to TV it uses the TV volume thus the TV volume is not gonna work as well.
2 scenarios
1 The TV volume even at max is not giving you enough power to get the low receiver volume
2 the Receiver volume is at max and barely audible.. if this is the case just manualy adjust your TV volume to get it to a decent sound level.

Hard to explain but I know the 2 issues can be fixed.

Sounds like you need to get a Green Setup remote but if you are using this privately you will not be able to obtain one to program the tv. They are only available to hotels since the tv's are for commercial use.

Sound goes up from tv show to commercial


There are two reasons for this. Firstly, the commercial channels are deliberately boosting the volume during commercial breaks to grab your attention. Secondly, the commercials use compressed audio (narrow dynamic range). This often comes across much louder than program material, which is using a wider dynamic range on which you would have based your volume setting. It is noticeable that the BBC are also sending out wide variations in volume at present - Yes it is VERY annoying. Some sort of ALC (automatic level control) is required but this would need to be switchable. Hope this helps.
