This issue started a while back, but I am tired of ignoring it now.

Setup is
acer laptop with a 5650m, i5, etc
Denon 1910
Polk monitor 60, cs2 and 30s. Bic h100

I have an hdmi cable ran from laptop to receiver, then to tv. I have tried shark007's (mpc-hc, wmp) codecs and xbmc. Ripped bluray and bluray played from usb drive have the same issue. Before this started -32db was a good volume. -28 was really loud. Now I have to put it on -25 just to get the volume I did have on -32.

I have ran audeessey couple times and have even turned it off with no change. MP3 plays back loud. -40 is louder than -25 in movies. Personal videos in stereo seem normal too.

Dts, dts-hd, dobly, trued hd, etc are all like this. Seems like stereo is the only one that plays normal.

I have even tested this on my ps3 and get the same low volume

Anyone have any ideas? Do receivers lose power as they age?

edit: Guess this should have gone to the receiver section. The more I think about it, this might have started when I moved. I moved to a room that is about 3x5 ft smaller.

Windows audio properties has a volume normalization setting. I use it and it works well.
