is the dvr dampening the HD sound moreso than before the upgrade ? for example i would always put the tv on sound level=22 for mike & mike on espn2 and it would be ok...now i have to go to 32. i had dvrd star wars the clone wars and i watched it yesterday before the upgrade & i know i had it on 26.....i tried it today and had to put it all they way to 35 to get to the same volume level. its like this on both tvs so its not the tv setting....something definately changed !! the spaciality of the sound area isnt as good as before as well on the HDs. ps....people at satguys have posted the same kinda comments so its not just me.
