avr volume levels
I've posted before regarding my issues with my Pioneer AVR VSX-816.
I have another issue, with volume levels.
When watching TV, these is a massive volume difference between audio on SD channels (a decent volume is about -45db) but when you switch to an HD channel, it is almost like it is muted,and I must turn it to approx -30db to -20db to get the same level. Even then, I find the HD channels,while mostly in 5.1, don't sound quite right. Just like when you have a TV's volume turned down too low,but crank up some external speakers,it's louder,but not right...Anyone catch my meaning? Its also a nuisance,as the AVR is slow on volume changes via remote,not to mention how it sounds when you change back to SD programming at -20db's!!!!
DCT is Motorola DCT-6200, connected via digital coax. Have looked through the AVR manual,but didn't see where I can change levels to accomodate this? Any advice?
speakers are BOSE 201 FL and FR, Paradigm Cinema 90 for SBL and SBR, and SL and SR, Pardaign 10"sub and Paradigm CC.
