BBC 1 HD very quiet

I know that the sound on all HD channels are quiet but I've just tried to watch strictly on BBC 1 HD and I had to turn the volume all the way up on the TV and it was still very quiet. I've had to go back to standard to watch and HEAR it.

What is the point of having HD if you cant hear it. We don't all have surround sound systems.

There was a fault on the link with the SCD studio at Elstree. It affected all viewers using BBC1 HD, not just those connected to Virgin. One of the trials & tribulations of live TV.

Do you have a 5.1 amp?

 

It may be you have 'Dolby Digital' set for a non-5.1 amp which should be set on TiVo as 'Dolby Digital to PCM'

It's just connected to the TV with a HDMI cable. No special amps.
