When my Avc-A1SE flashes up Norm Dial +4 on the display what does it mean?
At a guess it's telling you the metadata on a Dolby Digital DVD is telling the decoder the 'dialnorm' setting should be +4dB above unity.
Yes, I did a little research so I understand how this works now (I think ) Problem is my HTPC appears to not always do this so the DVD ends up playing 4 dbs lower volume. Its a bit unnerving when the same reference DVD sounds nice and loud one day and then goes a bit quite the next.
I too am getting this message on my Pioneer VSX-D2011:
It consistently does it on specific disks but there's nothing in the manual about it (unless it's hidden away in a small font ).
It makes sense that it is doing something to keep the volume levels consistent across disks.
