    I'm very pleased since they added team radio and made the picture larger
    during commercials. PQ not bad considering SD. HD next year I'll definitely
    re-up. :)

    Out of curiosity are you still experiencing high sound levels? We watch and listen every week at home and don't experience that. I've sent your comments to the engineers on several occasions and they aren't seeing those levels either (there are safeguards built in to help control high levels automatically).

    What channels are you experiencing the problems on? What "mode" are you in (HotPass audio, driver only, etc). When do you hear the spikes (coming out of or into commercials)?

    Any help would be appreciated and the engineers can take a deeper dive into it and see if there is something else going on.

    Also, what kind of receiver do you have that you are watching the race on.

    Thanks 88.

    I don't think I've ever experienced sound issues on Jr's channel, although I listened to Hamlin for a little while yesterday and the team only audio was very low.

    It's nothing to do with spikes or squeals or any kind of superfluous noise being injected into the audio streams or anything like that I'm talking about.

    It's just the very basics of setting the levels properly on the team audio channels.

    If you actually want to hear any decent amount of engine sound on the team audio on just about any driver, on any given weekend I've bothered to try it, you have to turn the volume up so high that when they do actually say something it blows the speakers out of the house.

    OH, and god forbid you do something that makes the thing swap from team audio back to the default audio stream at these elavated volume levels as well. Which includes doing just about anything with remote while on anything but the default audio stream.

    Which is not your problem, but either a HR20 design flaw or just a basic flaw in the interactive stuff in general, I have no doubt.

    Yeah, I'll buy that complaint. I normally only listen to the team audio, but it is annoying when I don't I guess. You are saying that you want to really hear the team audio, but that doesn't seem to be the focus. Course some of the announcers are better than others at letting you hear the team communication. Some of them really like to hear themselves talk.

    NO I'm saying I want to hear a proper balance of engine sound levels(which are all but not existant the majority of the time at otherwise sane volume levels) AND the radio chatter levels on the team audio stream.

    On an entirely different note while we're at it. The on screen telemetry is WAY off what is actually going on in the cars as well. By a huge margin.
