I just got a new HD TV and one of the benefits (compared to my 12-year old RCA ColorTrak) is the various inputs available. As such I set up my TV to be able to watch live TV while something is recording on TiVo.
Inputs are as follows (cable was split to run to the cable box and to the TV silmultaneously):
AV1: DVD player > TV
AV2: Cable > Digital Cable Box > TiVo (via AV cables) > TV
Coax Tuner: Cable > TV
What I'm now noticing is that there is a significant difference in volume output levels between the TiVo (AV) input and the TV (directly to tuner). So much so, that the volume is near 100 to listen to TiVo and only 18 for the TV tuner.
Is this normal? It's a SA S2 and I see it for both "Live TV" as well as recorded shows. Thanks for any "input" (ha ha )
It did not occur to me to check the cablebox settings (obviously). Audio was set to "stereo", and when I set the box to "TV Speakers" it did make a noticeable increase in volume. It's still nowhere close to what comes in directly to the TV's tuner, but it is better.
Is there anything else I should check to help level things out?
