I have searched and searched and been dealing with this for years, however I really want to resolves this, none of the other threads I have found had a resolve that worked for me. I am hoping someone can help me with an issue I am having with low audio volume playing MKVs through WMC.

I have used Shark007 Codecs in the past but recently switched to LAV to "de-clutter" my device and fix subtitle issues I was having, but with both options I had the same issue where my TV needs to be pumped up to max volume in order to barely hear MKV audio, yet everything else played through my HTPC hooked up to my TV via HDMI is fine.

Is there a fix to this? Any help would be greatly appreciated, it's driving me nuts. Thanks

Haven't you considered an external player (or another media center)?

I could do that, and I have, but i do my TV watching and recording through wmc and would really prefer to use the same program for everything if possible.

your issue is caused by the downmixing of multi-channel audio to stereo for your TV speakers. I posted a solution HERE just yesterday. Whether you use my codecs or not, the solution is the same.

Use Shark007 Codecs and retain your sanity.

Thanks for the reply, I really appreciate it, however it didn't solve the problem, it may have mad a very slight difference but not enough.

Guess it's time to give up on LAV now and start from scratch again. I am noticing the same volume issue on the majority of MP4s I try to play as well, I guess the ability to hear what I am playing is too much to ask smile.gif
