    I watched the Bourne Identity on Sky Movies last night and had to have the volume at a much higher level than was necessary for Sky One.

    SKY's DD programming has always been at a lower volume than normal stereo/surround movies. I do not know if this is a technical issue or an actual policy, I suspect technical:)

    Technically they don't.
    The advertisers compress the audio into the upper frequency range which means it conforms to the volume rules laid down by the regulator however when you have been watching a channel that has full range audio the advert volume then appears to be much louder.
    Solution, don't watch adverts:)
