    Hiya

    My mate has a DAV 550 and I was listening to it the other day and noticed that the volume when watching a DVD is a lot lower than say watching NTL or listening to radio through it. Is this normal and is there a way of increasing the volume for DVD's as at MAX I would say it is not loud enough. Or is this normal?

    thanks in advance.

    In my limited experience, I'd say yes. Both fed into my amp, the DVD source was quieter than Sky with 2 players and a home cinema PC.
    There is sometimes a DVD output volume tweak in the menu. See if you can find one.

    That's standard with the davs 550, nothing can be done AFAIK. They're just not very loud with DVD.
