We have a Sony HT-DDW900 Home Theater System. Often when watching a movie on a DVD or off Dishnetwork there are vast variations of loudness between action and speech scenes. That is if you set the volume so you can hear what people are saying to each other and then there is an action scene (like a gunfight) the sound just blasts you out. I mean it is painful and our cats will leave the room if I don't turn it down. Then when the scene changes to people talking you can't hear them and have to turn it up. I did recalibrate the Sony and that improved it some, but we were watch watching the Matrix series and I had to keep adjusting the volume up and down. I have tried every setting and different sound programs and the only one which makes it tolerable is when I turn off the surround sound and just switch to 2 channel stereo. I am a beginner at this I have studied the manual but I just don't know what to do so we can enjoy surround sound. Any suggestions and information would be appreciated. But do remember I don't have a very large Home theater vocabulary so if you get technical you will need to explain.
