DVR oddity

    I'm sure there's a perfectly reasonable explanation, I just have no clue what it is.

    When I'm watching TV as it airs, I tend to find a volume between 14 and 18 reasonable (depends on the show, among other factors). If I'm watching something I recorded on DVR, I have to boost the volume to around 30 to get the same sound level. This has happened across multiple TV/DVR setups, using composite (in our SDTV days) or HDMI (now that we have HDTV).

    Can anyone explain this to me, please? :)

    Who's your carrier? Dish, Comcast, TWC?

    I remember seeing an option on our DVR about recording volume in the setup. However we'd need to know more about your setup (box type) to help further.

    Comcast. I've been through several boxes (Pace and Motorola brands) and this is consistent across hardware.

    Happens on my DVR, too. I'm recording OTA. No boxes.

    We record on a VHS and RAM discs OTA also, and that volume doesn't drop.
    That system uses 2 converter boxes - 1 for the recorder and 1 for the TV.
