For the past few weeks, the DVR menu has had Dish Music at the top of the screen, and the song listed playing at extremely high volume, far louder than the volume of a program just listened to. This is just plain awful. I wouldn't mind so much if the volume level were the same as regular programs. As it is, if I'm watching recorded shows and go to the DVR menu to delete a show just watched and select another show, the volume is ear splitting. I have to turn it down while browsing and then turn it back up when I watch another program. :mad:

Not sure I understand this... The only way there should be music playing is if you are tuned to one of the music channels prior to going into the DVR menu... so the "fix" would be to tune to a different channel before going into the DVR menu, right?

I've never heard of music playing in the menus unless you were on a music channel.

Stewart had the answer, and I never gave it a thought, since I seldom watch live TV via my Hopper. Rather, I have timers set up for a lot of favorite programs. My live TV viewing is predominantly on local OTA channels, using my TiVo Premiere OTA. (I switched from cable to Dish a few months ago). How the active tuner wound up on Dish Music is beyond me, since I never use Dish Music.
