LG C1 - FireTV 4K stick sound levels


Novice Member
I have a new LG C1 with a connected Samsung HW-K450 sound bar connected via the HDMI Arc port. I mostly stream content via a Firetv 4K stick. I have had the stick and the soundbar for over a year connected to a Samsung tv. My issue is that i have huge variability in sound levels. Sometimes it is commercials that are very quiet (which is OK with me) or it may be a huge difference between streaming services. For viewing on Direct TV Stream I would have the volume set to 8 or 9. If I stream in Discovery+ it has to be on 20+. With my previous samsung TV I didn't have any of these issues and would rarely need above a 7.

I have tried several permutations of the settings on both the TV and the stick and can't seem to solve this. I have also set the stick to level the volume but it makes no difference. Anybody see this or have any thoughts?
