    SRS Labs has come out with a stand-alone "box" with HDMI thru put incorporating their TRU VOLUME algorithims technology.
    SRS TruVolume now delivers consistent audio while using stereo and multi-channel speaker configurations

    Rumor has it that a "box" is coming out this week from $29-$99 USD.
    Too bad loud commercials make us look at these devices.

    That's quite the price spread.

    I didn't notice. I have a box between my PC and my monitor that delivers constant font size. ;)

    it's funny, I clicked on the link and watched a video on the amazing SRS solution to noise spikes. I couldn't help but notice the noise spiked every time the music came on...I had to lower my volume it was so loud!:lol:

    Cool idea. I wonder if they'll be able to come up with a device like this that works with component video and digital audio connections? I'm thinking that examining the audio stream and re-adjusting it's volume on the fly might cause a slight audio delay which will have to be matched by a corresponding video delay, to prevent lip-synch issues.

    I'll be amazed if it can do all of that on a DD5.1 audio stream over HDMI for <$100.

    My newest TV has the feature built in. I watch very little programming that contains commercials, but it does a good job of leveling out the differences from channel-to-channel.

    Hi all
    The AUDIOVOX VR1 works great with componet hook up. I have used one for a few years and loud problems are a thing of the past. Installs between the DTV receiver and the TV (red/white). Check Amazon for cost.

    Works great with component? Component is video only.

    EDIT: Just searched it, and see what you were trying to say. The box will work with any video output, since video is not routed through it, only audio. It only with works with standard audio cables, so no DD. You can use HDMI and standard audio cables, though, so no need to use component if you are using this. Unless, that is, you actually want quality sound. ;)

    Hi All
    Componet is a five cable hookup. YPBPR (G,R,B) video and red/white audio. Quality sound from TV is a bit of a stretch but to each his own. The Audiovox will provide stereo sound with no loud commercials.

    This feature should be standard on all Direct boxes:lol: especially on Direct commercials.

    That would work for my non AV receiver displays. I'd like to see one that works with component video and DD audio out, for non-HDMI surround set-ups.

    Not true. Component is three cable hookup (video only), with your choice of audio (red/white analog and optical or coaxial digital).

    There is no such thing as component audio.
