Re: Using DOLBY VOLUME to reduce overall volume for late night viewing
I'd like to be able to reduce the bass/ loudness' etc if watching a movie late a night on the fly. I live in a terraced house
The Dolby volume button on the remote suggests this does exactly what I'm looking for = a one button press to activate Dolby Volume...
Reading user manual Page 37 section 4.6.7, it states to use Dolby Volume according to its setting in the level Calibration and source setup menus press the DOLBY VOLUME
I tried alternating this button ON/OFF last night and then opened the Level Calibration menu to see if the DOLBY VOLUME setting in the matched but it did not match.
E.g. when I toggled to ON via the remote, the Dolby Volume setting under level calibration still showed as OFF.
Whilst tying this post now in work I'm just thinking should I have looked up the ADVANCE SOURCE SETUP menu instead?
Now I'm reading through the MRX manual and just getting confused
Reading/comparing Pages 17 & 20 on the various Dolby volume settings
I'm confused about the relationship between setting the:
- Dolby Volume Leveler Amount in the LEVEL CALIBRATION menu option (page 17)
-configuring Dolby Volume mode in Advanced source Setup menu (page 20)
The LEVEL CALIBRATION is for all sources - I do NOT want any Dolby volume reductions set to ON by default, this is where I'm confused.I just want the option to activate Dolby volume temporarily late at night. E.g. I want BDP by default to have all DOLBY VOLUME setting switched off so I'm reluctant to change Dolby Volume Leveler Amount for all sources..
Q1) Do you just use the Dolby Volume Leveler Amount to set your personal preference as to what level of adjustment you get when you activate Dolby Volume mode for a specific source?
e.g. does this setting ONLY come into effect in conjunction with having the Dolby Volume mode set to ON'?
Next, User manual Page 17, section titled Dolby Volume Leveler Amount states
..when Dolby Level is Off the frequency response adjustment still applies unless Dolby Volume is also off
Q2) So if Dolby Volume Leveler Amount but Dolby Volume still set to ON - what level is being applied? I don't understand from the wording in the manual
And 1 basic question:
Q3) Using the Dolby Volume button on the remote - is this setting stored after powering down the MRX?
I'm hoping it is NOT and is merely there to allow that on the fly activation if the sound is a little too much when watching late at night
Hoping someone can make sense of my rambling summary and help me understand these alternate settings
