Hate to dig this up from '06, but you have to give me some credit for doing a search first before posting the same question.
My recorded HD primetime shows via DTV HD local channels are much quieter than the same live HD broadcast. To make matters worse, the commercials in the recorded HD program are not affected, therefore I have to have the remote armed and ready when they start (mute, FF, play, mute).
Is there another thread on this problem that has more info?
Is there a "fix" in the works?
Two of my buddies have the same problem with their HR20's, 100 and 700 versions.
We all have the sound going through our DD receivers, different makes.
I have personally watched one of my shows live and then played it again after it had stopped recording. There were no volume issues during the live version, but the recorded version experienced the low show volume and normal commercial volume.
Any input/help is appreciated.
