I'm not sure if it's DTV, the Nat Geo network, or specific shows, but I've noticed with a lot of the National Geographic content the audio quality of those being interviewed will be horribly weak, and possibly only coming out of surround speakers, but as soon as the documentary voice over starts that audio will be booming loud out of the center channel.

I am constantly adjusting the volume up and down because of this... Or at least I was, I've just stopped watching all together now.

Any idea where the problem lies here?

Commercial volume, although loud, is consistent. Maybe it's the programming itself?

Sounds like a poor mix in the program itself or an issue with your AV receiver. HAve you tried turning Dolby Digital off, or using different surround modes? What specific programs is it happening on? Maybe someone else can check them out on their system and see if the same issue exists.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
