Last night I hooked my Sony DAV-FAX900w 5.1 to my 42" HP Plasma. The sound from the DVD player is nearly twice as loud as that coming from the cable box through the Sony receiver. Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong, if anything?

Also, I'm using component cables (RGB?) for the video and one component cable for the digital audio. Would I get better results with one HDMI cable?

is you Cable box also connected digitally to your amp?

Check the Volume on the cable box itself.. many cable boxes have their own built in volume and that may be turned down.

If the above is all correct... then that's just how it is... many sources have a higher DB input then other sources.

That's why higher end amps have a feature in which to balance your sources.

Thanks for the quick response. I never thought to check the volume of the cable box. That's probably it. The cable box is connected digitally to the amp.

Hopefully that will solve the problem. If not it's just something you'll have to deal with. At least it's not the other way around... watching a DVD and then switching over to cable and getting blasted out of the room!.
