Kind of a strange thing happened...when I have my stereo on for surround sound, the volume is now being controlled by my dtv remote. The volume dial on my stereo does not move, but the actual volume is being changed by the remote. In the past, when I used my surround sound, I would always mute the tv volume and crank up the stereo. Now I cannot do that because the stereo volume seems to be controlled by the dtv remote as well. On top of that, to get good sound out of my stereo, I need to have the stereo volume way up, more than normal. I am wondering if one of my kids did something to change some settings on the remote or something. One thing that has happened about the same time is that the actual volume button on my tv was pushed inside the unit and is now useless...I don't know if that is related but I noticed it at the time I started having this issue with the stereo volume.
