Full Version: Weird HDMI sound volume issue
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I have a strange HDMI sound volume issue. Generally it works OK, but for some movies the volume is too low (especially for voice) and I simply cannot increase the volume in my TV (XBMC volume is at maximum). I mean I increase it like x10, music volume gets louder, but not the voice! Yet for most movies it is OK...

Any idea? It is driving me crazy...
Maybe the sound is being output as surround (5.1) but you only have stereo so are missing a centre channel? I think there is a downmixing option somewhere.

And if that's it then you'd enjoy reading http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=68838 which covered this already Smile
Thanks for the tip, but apparently I do have downmix enabled. Any other ideas ?
I see many sound related issues reported in the forum with no solutions...
