what Yamaha feature for maintaining same volumne during changing TV channels?

I'm concidering upgrading my current Yamaha AVR RX-V 465 to a better Yamaha AVR

?1. What does Yamaha refer to for maintaining same volumne during changing TV channels
so all channels have the same volume?

?2.same ? as above when commercails come on is it possiable to have the same volume
as the TV for commercials?

Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control)
Thanks STB

Adaptive DRC does not do that. A.DRC just normalizes all sounds when the volume is turned down on the receiver. What you're asking for is more likely a feature on your cable box.

I dont have a cable box.

when I change channels some are double the volumne and I'm concerned I will eventualley blow a speaker.

I have recently deleted these loud channels so if I decide to watch the loud channel the process is to lower vloumne then press the channel # PITA.

I know Denon has this feature for blaring volumne just dont want a complicated AVR that constantly requires firmware upgrades.

Can't believe Yamaha doe'snt offer this feature.

It does, I guess. There's a feature called Adaptive Dynamic Range Control. As you lower the receiver's volume, it normalizes all sounds (so no highs or lows).

I was reading about the Yamaha RXV3800 as a possiable upgrade to my current RXV465. here's Yamahas definition of

Adaptive Dynamic Range Control

Adaptive DRC is a new volume control technology that is effective for low-volume listening, such as at night or with headphones. It applies DRC processing to eliminate the volume differences between loud commercials and ordinary programming and to take into account our ears' loss of sensitivity as volume decreases. The compensation is performed automatically, so all dialogue is heard clearly even at low levels, and there are no sudden loud bursts of sound.



My current Yamaha RXV465 has this Adaptive Dynamic Range Control audio feature however either it's not programed on or it's malfunctioning becauce I have loud commercials.

is there a way to confirm DRC is turned on?

when states "Adaptive DRC is a new volume control technology that is effective for low-volume listening" how low is low? I usalley listen at volumne levels 10-25 depending on the source.

drc will not help with your "problem"... it can't, as it is only relevant to the current audio being played, it is not "comparative to other audio"...

it is what it is... some broadcasters are on the hot side...

I got a Denon receiver with audyssey over the yamaha because of these issues. Audyssey has dynamic eq and dynamic volume which helps.

You want a receiver with Dolby Volume. It will do what you want.

neither will help with differing "volume" from different broadcaster (or sources, ftm)...

again... drc (all flavors) is only relational to the actual audio you are listening to... not to what "some other audio" might be...

just heard some good news todays the deadline set by the FCC for the a$$holes broadcasting extra loud commercials not sure if this applies to changing channels keeping a constant level.

anyway this has been a long time coming evedentalley the FCC gave these a$$holes one year grace period to voluntarly lower the volumne.

I sometimes feel like calling these Lawyers and used car salesman ect and yell in the phone there tactics of loud commercials (only during live TV) actualley is backfiring on them.

Hopefully this will be the end if they continue to blast commercials I expect the FCC w/ all there power to remove the violaters testicals. then just delete there privalegde to broadcast I personalley think abulance chasers should be band from broadcasting if there are still regular attornys let them broadcast.

if you continue to hear loudness please report when and what channel to FCC I will.

The End.

They remind me of the old Saturday nite live, garret Morris bit when he would shout the top story for the hard of hearing at the end of Chevy chase's news report.
