Re: V6 volume too low.

I finally "fixed" it by buying a new AVR that has individually adjustable volume levels for each source. Hardly an acceptable solution but really, how likely is a proper solution at this point?

Tbf  new AVR was for other reasons 🙂

Me being lazy 🙂

 AV Receiver.

Just as a note, I had to increase the gain for the V6 by 8dB, (Edit: to make it equal to other sources)  which is about what someone else thought it was as well.

Re: V6 volume too low.

I agree volume low on TiVo box but also if you go on any HD channel volume goes even much lower, very strange. Come on Virgin please rectify this annoying problem

Re: V6 volume too low.

The base level volume of the V6 box is lower than, the TIVo, V and V+ boxes. It has nothing to do with TV's.

There are no hidden settings that will change this, you can play about with Dolby settings, some may provide a small improvement others do nothing.

Some TV channels do transmit at a higher level than others, some commercial channels increase the transmitted volume at a higher level for its adverts.  There is no industry standard for transmission level of audio.

If you have a Blu Ray player, it is usual to increase the volume level on your sound out put devices and then have to turn it back down for TV programs.

HD tv channels tend to be transmitted at a lower volume level than SD, its just the way things work.

If the sound is not clear increase the volume, it is not difficult, you have the remote in you hand when you change channels and pressing to up on the Volume control takes no time at all. If you missed something then simply rewind, its all at your control.



You can't learn anything from a mistake until you admit that you've made it.
