Home theater ht-bd3252 volume issues

by rda79 / November 9, 2009 8:43 AM PST

Have motorola dvr(cable service)-samsung led tv un55b7100 and samsung home theater system ht-bd3252. When I have the tv on the volume is good. When I turn on the theater system the volume on several channels drops to the point I have to adjust the volume every time I change channels. Have HDMI cable connectd from dvr to tv and HDMI cable connected from home theater to tv. Also, have optical cable connected from dvr to home theater. What causes the volume to drop?

Usually the broadcasters control the volume, but if it's only happening when the HT is turned on, it may be how the HT system is handling the signal.

I'm not sure what you mean by the volume drops, as opposed to the volume "is good". Is it that the volume isn't as constant, or that audio is generally quiet on the HT, or that it fluctuates often?

When I'm watching an HD channel I have the volume set to 7. this is good for me. But if I change the channel to a non HD channel the volume is too low to hear. I usually have to raise the volume to 19 or 20.

If I turn off the home theater system and just listen to the TV, all channels no matter HD or not have the same volume, no adjustment required. Hope I'm explaining this well?

Is there a certain way the Motorola dvr-tv-home theater system must be connected?
