I currently have mysky HDI and i notice that TV3HD and sky sport channels are all very much louder than TV1HD and TV2HD, Does anybody know why this is when i go to the tvnz channels the volume has to be turned up and TV3 and sky sport the volume has to be turned down.

I agree that it is a pain in the arse.

There must be someone we can complain to about this :(

It's the same with ads on most channels.
Ad break starts and it is suddenly very loud.

Some TV's do have an option for standardizing the volume on all channels. Its just a stop-gap measure but it could help you out.

Pass dont have Sky. Only a USB tuner for freeview

Actually for me it is the other way around; tv1 and 2 are slightly louder than 3.
If i change the audio setting on my tv from 2.1 to 2/0, the volume gets a small boost. But when I switch back, the tv forgets the previous setting :o

I'm pretty sure Sky is - the difference in audio quality on the Sky Movies channels over the other Sky channels is astounding

If only all channels ran at the same volume then we would'nt have this problem i think in my view they do it to beat the other in competition for viewership strange i know but they will do anything to win viewers.

Just a bit off topic did you know tvnz spent $800,000 for there new orange one graphics and the new theme they have now is( come home to one) they wanted to give there viewers that warm feeling so they said in a press release also the graphics were designed in aussie whats wrong with our kiwi graphics companies.
