BBC HD Volume Level

While watching the golf yesterday I noticed that the sound level on BBC HD went much quieter during the player interviews, and I've also noticed it in the introduction between programmes in the past.

I tried clicking through all the sound variations on my amp, but none made any difference to the level, so in the end I watched it on BBC One to get a consistent sound level.

Has anyone else experienced the same thing? And does anyone know what the problem is?

Thanks in advance...

RE: BBC HD Volume Level

The main thing I notice is that the 'ad' for BBC HD between programmes is far louder than the audio on the programmes themselves.

I've noticed that too, but definitely the programme introductions sound like the person is miles from the mic in a echoey room.

RE: BBC HD Volume Level

Just watched the end of Panorama into the next programme, and all was ok this time.

It seems like it might be an intermittent problem. Could it be the reported Sony TV/BBC HD sound drop out problem affecting my Sony AV Receiver?
