I did some searching on this, but seem to only find discussion from 2007 or so. I have incredibly low volume on this receiver, hard to isolate exactly. But many if not all shows, need to be turned up quite a bit, some all the way to 100 on my Samsung 56" HD. I have a direct antenna input (not OTA) and it never needs to be above about 25. I have a PS3 also connected to TV and its volume is fine. Is this a known thing? As I said, I have found here, and googling, similar problems going back years, on various models of DVRs or just plain receivers. I have been with them 12 years, never had this problem. Been paying for the protection plan since day one. They are sending a tech out saturday, but have to wonder if any gurus out there have any ideas, or know that this is a known problem by D* and has been known for years, accdg to some things I have read. Some examples of worst case, wtching HBO The Day After on saturday, needed volume to 100 just to be listenable. My wife watches, usually records her soap, Bold and Beautiful, on CBS, and it always has to be at 100. I also find many stations, like MSNBC need to be around 75 or so. Something is very wrong, and wondered what light anyone here can shed on it. There are so many well informed people here as I have found many times over the years. Thanks for any help.
