I apologize before hand if this problem isn't in the right thread. I did do a quick search and didn't find anyone who had a similar problem.
I just bought a new HD tv. Samsung LCD 32" [Model LN32b550 60 hz to be exact]
I decided to start getting into the whole Blue ray. So I bought the Watchmen and the 3 Terminator movies.
To get to the point, I play the movies in my PS3 [Original 60 gig] I notice that I can't get the sound to a comfortable level. Either its too high or its too low. I turn on my surround sound (if you can even call it that). Its an old receiver, about 20 years old and its connected to the tv via Audio output.
Anyways, whenever I play a PS3 [hdmi] or 360 [Component] game, the sound is awsome. Or whenever I just watch tv.
But when I play a blue ray movie through the PS3, the sound is temper mental.
For example in the Watchmen, whenever they talk in the movie, the sound is really low. I have to turn up the tv volume really high. (higher than I do when I watch tv) and I can barely hear the surround sound. Now whenever there is an explosive action scene, the surround sound is ridiculously loud and I have to turn it down. And other random scenes it just too loud. But on a talking scene its so low that the Volume Indicator on the receiver barely moves.
Does anybody know why this is and what I can do to fix it?
Terminator 1 also has the same problem. And oddly, when I go to the main screen where I can pick play move or scene selection the volume is ridiculously loud again, but when I go into the actual movie, I can barely hear it from my surround sound speakers. Its never just constant like how it is when I play games.
Sorry for the long post, trying to give as much info as possible to find a solution.
