Default Inter channel levels

I do wish some organisation would come in and enforce some kind of standard
on levels of the sound on freeview channels. I know this has come up
beforebut they reall are all over the place and its not just compression
differences as you can often hear limiting on some of the conten of the
quietest channels. And as for the radio its always louder and some are very
very loud. If levels and dynamic range was handled correctly, then they
would all benefit I feel.

Freesat's just as bad

the difference appears to be between HD and SD channels

Swapping from the news on BBC1 (which because of the regional choice
defaults to SD) to exactly the same program on BBCN, and the sound level
shoots up from barely audible to deafening (or the other way round, I
forget)

That is interesting as a friend says his hd sound is quieter than sd. Also
the idiots at Samsung have not spotted a bug where if you have AD on on the
hd channel every time the adverts or end of show happens the sound goes
really quiiet and you have to switch away and back to get it back again. I
suspect they are trying to mute the AD and mute everything by mistake!

Not with our setup. BBC HD sound is different to BBC SD.
BBC HD sound is in Dolby 5.1. BBC SD isn't
Otherwise we rarely have to adjust the sound when watching via Freesat.


Eh? My TV only has Left and Right channels. If you are saying the signal
contains Dolby 5.1 information, that's no excuse for messing up the normal
output.

Different TVs might down-mix the 5.1 to 2.0 differently, and sound
louder or quieter.
