No, J, I don't care to disclose anything you ask because you'll just look for more to ask and beat this to death.
Just because Flag lowered his levels for the 2nd run doesn't mean anything. You know this, so why use it in your query (unless you don't know this)?
Here's the SL caps of a) Thor on DVD and b) Thor on BR:
Nothing was changed except the disc. As you can see, the BR clipped mine as well as individual frequencies well exceeded 0dBFS, so be sure to factor that into your maths. The BR levels are +10dB over the DVD levels. I asked Max to look into whether or not it clips on the disc and maybe he'll get around to it and we'll go from there.
Please do not give me a tutorial on peaks and maths and channels and THX. You asked how, I just explained how... for the 2nd time.
Just a quick check at Amazon show that the THOR DVD uses an AC-3 track, and the THOR Bluray uses a DTS track. Dolby Dialnorm could explain the entire volume difference, but it will not boost DTS volume levels.
The WOTW DD AC-3 track plays back 8 dB softer than the DTS track located on the same DVD. No mystery as to the cause of that volume level difference!
