    I do not have a Sony but if you can alter you audio levels on your machine UP, this may help.

    My trusty Sony VCR SLV825 just died - £600 10 years ago and I've just replaced it with a new Sony SLV X9 (similar spec to yours I think). Firstly I know my new VCR was much less expensive than my original Sony, but I put that down to consumer electronics getting cheaper generally - but the new one is inferior in every way - tuner quality, record quality and (re your question) no variable audio recording levels and playback. I'm fairly sure you can't alter the audio levels on your VCR either.
    However, if it's a volume mismatch to your digibox volume, you can adjust the Sky digibox volume output (system services, audio setup) so you may be able to match them that way.
    If it's a problem with matching the audio from your TVs internal tuner terrestrial output, I think you're probably knackered, unless your TV has the capability of adjusting the individual line input levels.

    Hope this was of some use and not just confusing!;)
