Question about Televison & Video
I have Dayton, Ohio Time Warner HD DVR 8300 box that was recently replaced twice with the same "problem" (my older 8200 DVR HD box did NOT have this problem.)
The HD channels have 'soft' sound during the shows. My HD Mitshibishu TV needs to be set at about 65-70 out of 100 to hear properly. However , the commercials BLAST at that volume. We need to be quick on the remote to prevent "wndows shaking!" However, the corresponding Digital (NOT HD) channels need the volume set at about 35-40 for the same loudness with NO increase at the commercials.
Example = channel 707 HD WHIO soft show and loud commericals . Channel 7 Digital WHIO fine at lower volumes.
Am I missing a Audio setting somewhere?
Experience has shown that with this relatively new mode of transmission, audio levels can be quite dynamic. If your set provides it, you may try turning on "Audio Compress" or whatever the name might be. Could also be called Dynamic audio also or some such. Reason for all the hubbub is that along with HD, mixing engineers are also providing the most range for the audio dynamics as well the most video composition info in the new broadcasts...Accordianman.
