Hello, The audio levels for the premium channels are atrocious. Not only are the audio levels inconsistent between different companies, they are inconsistent from within the same company. Also, something else that was brought to my attention was the audio levels between the SD and HD channels. Apparently some receivers have some sort of possible Dynamic Range squishing limiter function, and that's wonderful if you have that option and the resulting sound quality is acceptable to you. However, why aren't the wildly different audio levels controlled better before the sound ever reaches the customer? In addition, far too often I've seen at the beginning of a premium channel movie that it will be presented with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio, only to find out it's not. Yet, inconsistently a movie will be presented with DD5.1 audio, so apparently the capability is there. It's not only the premium channels, but other channels, including locals, which should be, but are not presented with DD5.1 audio. Since audio plays such an intricate part of the experience and on a completely digital system like DISH, why, when DD5.1 is available, is DISH not providing the content with DD5.1 audio? Thanks.
