Sounds stop working after about 1 to 2 hours of viewing.
Sound is also changing between channels, commercials very high, regular programming very low when you have same level of sound. If you change channels the sound will come back and be normal for another 1 to 2 hours of viewing, except for high/low sounds, that continues as described above.

Re: sounds stop working after about 1 to 2 hours of...
We would be happy to help you with this. The volume levelingfeature that we have sounds perfect for this situation; it keeps the volumelevels consistent between programming and commercials and also prevents drasticvolume level changes when switching between HD and SD programming. The volumeleveling feature is supported by the following receivers: ViP 222k, ViP 612,ViP 722k, and ViP 922; the model number of your receiver is displayed onthe front in the lower left corner. Your receiver needs to be connected by onof the following: composite cable (green, blue, red cables), coax cable (singlecable with metallic tip), HDMI or optical devices that do not support Dolbyaudio.
Start by pressing the menu button on your DISH Network remote control, thenpress the number 6 for system setup then 7 for audio output. Once therehighlight the "Enable" option below Volume Leveling and press select.Once enable exit the menu by selecting done on the right side of the screen.
We hope this helps to get things set up the way you like it. Thanks forchoosing DISH Network!

Some Sanyo TV's have a feature called Dynamic volume, this feature can be enabled by just pressing the dynamic volume button on the factory remote. We happen to offer a similar feature called volume leveling on our VIP 722k, 612, and 222k receivers. This is a recently released feature that will keep the volume even, during commercials or when changing channels. To access this press menu 6-1-6 and select enable under volume leveling.
Your HDMI version software and hardware will not work with todays version. The current version 1.3b is what works correctly (so far) IT can be upgraded to todays specs however, it's a preicey task for minimal gain if you are viewing any TV smaller than 50". The human eye cannot see the difference between 720p and 1080p on any TV 50 or smaller. That being said, if your TV has multiple HDMI ports, you can sidetrack this issue by connecting directly from the source, ie DVD, BLURAY, etc. then use optical or coaxial digital coaxial to the receiver. I know it's not the best news!! don't Blame Yamaha! it's been the recording industry and copyright protection issues that have overloaded product with "anti-piracy" software to the point you can't view it!. All receivers prior to 09' have multiple HDMI issues. Also, try setting your receiver to "Auto" in audio and running an analog RCA from the source to the receiver as well as HDMI, it may help, however, analog is much louder than digital, and I'm not sure if you can "offset" the volume level for analog in that receiver's settings. So, when you go to a commercial it could be unbearably more annoying than not listening to the commercial at all! Hope this helps.
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.
Most of HD channel broadcast in 5.1 channel sound. Regular channel broadcast in 2.0 channel sound. You TV only have 2 speakers so you will expect the sound will be low compare with the regular channel.
What model TV is it?
it may be you need to change the input to video 1 or video 2 to get those front jacks to work. if there is a TV/Video button on the front you should be set. If not you may need the remote control. Sometimes changing the channel to below channel 1 will give you that option.
Hi, new one on me but heres one thing you should do with that comcast box, un-plug the AC cord on the comcast box for about 1 minute, plug it back in and be patient while it re-boots, can take as long as 4-5 minutes, this re-sets all the logic states in the box, hope this helps.
Sounds like you're blessed to have a tv like that!
Some sets have settings that will cut down the sound during a commercial. Haveyou looked at your owner's manual? This tv may have setting to cut out the picture also when commercials come on.
From a technical view point generally commercials have stronger signals than regular programming. This may be overloading your set.
If this is the case, then you need to have it checked by good technician. A poorly operating power supply (not regulating properly) could possibly cause a problem like this. Also automatic gain control circuits could be not working properly.
