This is actually an old problem. Up until now, I've just put up with it, or tried to compensate in various ways. But it's not getting any better, so now at last I'm trying to figure out how it might be resolved. The audio level from my Blu-ray player is much, much too low. It's very low when compared with watching ordinary (cable) TV programming. It's so low that I have to turn the receiver volume up all the way (max level), and even then it's still too low -- and nowhere near as loud as cablebox programming (which is fine with the receiver volume nowhere near maxed out). I've tried researching this issue online, Googling it. It seems that lots of people have complained about this issue, but I've yet to find any adequate explanation or solution offered. My setup is extremely simple, and rather old fashioned. No 5.1 or 6.1 or 7.1 surround sound for me, in my modest surroundings. I have a Samsung LED TV with two HDMI inputs. A Comcast cable TV box feeds one of those inputs. A Sony blu-ray player feeds the other. Both are connected with identical HDMI cables. Yet the cable box audio output seems to be vastly louder than that of the blu-ray player. Lowering the cable box volume to match that of the blu-ray player (if even possible) would even things out, but is not a good solution. The blu-ray volume is so low I have trouble hearing quieter passages of music and dialogue. I would't want cable TV shows to become equally difficult to hear. Rather, the blu-ray player should be as loud as the cable box's audio output. And I'm deeply puzzled why it isn't. I've experimented with altering audio settings in both the blu-ray player and the TV. Nothing has resulted in boosting the blu-ray's volume to make it comparable to that of the cable box. Both the blu-ray player and the cable box are fed, as mentioned, into separate HDMI inputs on the TV. Then the TV's own analog stereo audio output (no HDTV output exists here) is fed into the analog stereo (RCA jacks) of an old Sony stereo receiver (too old for HDMI, although it is 5.1 capable -- but I dont use that capability, and the cable box sounds plenty loud through it). I don't know if that matters. It's just that two sources (cable and blu-ray) are fed straight into the TV, whose single output then is fed into a stereo receiver. Yet one such source (the blu-ray) comes out far quieter than the other source (the cable TV). I'm at a loss to understand why, or how to fix it. And as mentioned, the resulting volume of the blu-ray audio as fed through the receiver from the same single TV analog audio output is far quieter than that of the cable TV as fed through that same single output -- so much so that, even when the receiver's volume is maxed (80 watts/channel), it's so low that subtleties are hard to hear (unlike when watching cable TV, which is actually too loud at that same maxed-out receiver volume setting). Any ideas for a solution would be most greatly appreciated!
