    Hoping to clear something up and hopefully help:

    If you are having to crank the audio up to hear on your movies, are you using HDMI, analog or TOSLINK audio?

    The only audio issue I'm having is having to crank up the volume more then usual.

    I'm using TOSLINK

    I haven't noticed any issues with low volume on the only movie I have really watched: Avatar.

    That said, I didn't really pay attention to the level on the AV receiver because it's behind a wood cabinet and there's no on-screen display for volume. I just turn it up until it sounds good but not loud enough to wake the kids.

    No issues here, although we have only got one movie so far.

    There are 2 new movies in my Q now, so I am planning on watching those this weekend.

    I did vote HDMI, only because when the movie ends and goes back to what ever channel I was watching... its a really loud problem!

    I figure it's the DD signal feed, so analog should be fine. Other than making sure I turn the volume back down to a "normal" level before I get out of the movie screen, the sound is quite good.

    TOSLINK audio and I had to crank it up with both of the movies I watched.

    Ok so I watched Alice in Wonderland last night and I did notice that the volume level seemed a little low. When I turned the TV on this morning, it was really loud, same as barryb. This was using analog audio on my HR22.

    I originally voted no problems because it was fine with Avatar but after watching Alice I realized that i had turn the volume up to double the normal level for me. I'm using HDMI.

    I've only watched one movie but I didn't have any problems with audio.

    I'm using Optical/TOSLINK.

    I experienced my first audio issue with one of the test movies. When playing "When In Rome" I had to raise the volume level to "40" on a system that rarely is raised above "28".

    No audio issues as of yet using 2 vastly different systems:

    1. A 7-Channel TrueHD/dts-HD etc PCM system with DD turned off.

    1. RCA 2-channel audio only

    I'm using HDMI and have had to crank up the volume significantly on all the movies I've watched to date. In most cases I've had to raise it 100% above the normal setting. I have to be careful to crank it back down before switching back to normal viewing.

    I wouldn't call it an issue, but I do normally have my audio level at around 30 when viewing other content from my HDDVR. When viewing the Cinetest movies I have to go to 45-50 to have loud enough audio.
