Recently I watched the new Sherlock Holmes (didn't really care for it) and am now watching the first episode of "The Virgin Queen." I have noticed same problem with the audio in both programs. It seems the vocal track is being overwhelmed by everything else, whether it be the music, sound effects, or background noise. I've never watched a tv program where the vocals are so overwhelmed by everything else. I am watching our local pbs station in Jacksonville via DirecTV. All our other tv programming audio seems well balanced and do not encounter this problem when watching a DVD or a vhs tape or any other program source. Am I the only one with this problem, or are others experiencing this?
