Why are On Demand / DoD / VOD programs SO much louder than everything else? Or is it just Hot Fuzz?

There have been many reports of the exact opposite (extremely Low volume). It would nice if DIRECTV or the content providers could keep the on demand content near the same level as the Satellite channels.

For me it was much lower but for the last week or so it is just a little lower than all programs via the SAT's.

Mine has always been much lower, but I haven't watched Hot Fuzz yet (kinda' hoping it shows up on HBOHD before it expires on DOD).

Huh... well, Hot Fuzz is the only thing I've watched so far (I just got On Demand working last night) and it was much louder than anything on sat.
