Mac Mini running OSX10.8
Audio connected from Audio out port on Mini to audio in on TV
Video connected using DVI to VGA connected to VGA in of LG flat panel TV (no smart TV)
Mac Mini has no HDMI port
XBMC mostly used for streaming from sites like 1Channel, One Click Movies, etc.
Issues (might be related):
- Audio out from the Mini is very low. I have to set the TV Volume level to minimal 50/100 to get acceptable volume. Sometimes even higher.
- Balance between speech and special effects is too big. Let me explain: If i set the volume right so i can properly hear conversations in the movie, once there is action, the louder background music and special sound effects is extremely loud. So oud i have to turn the volume down. Then, when the action is over, i cannot hear the next conversations anymore. They are too soft, so i have to raise teh volume again. Until the next action scene, etc.
Are these two issues related?
Is this related to the Mini?
Is this related to a setting in XBMC?
Is this related to a setting on the TV?
Any help would be appreciated.
