You have to change the sound mode when you change inputs. At least on my receiver. So when I switch from my 360 to my PC, I change it to stereo so that it's only 2.1 When I go back to 360 I turn on surround sound. You gotta switch though.

What type of audio are you playing when you say "cable"? The receiver doesn't know what type of box the sound is coming from. It only knows the format of the audio itself.

Cable TV covers a wide range of mixes and audio formats. Some content will have very little bass. Other shows, especially action movies broadcast in HD with DD 5.1 tracks should have lots of bass. So, are you watching HD cable with DD 5.1 as the audio format? And, if so, how's the bass on shows that should have lots of it?

Sorry, but I cannot help much with such cryptic answers. There's a big difference between watching CNN HD and a movie like Jurassic Park in DD 5.1. In order to get troubleshooting help, you need to start by playing a program that should have plenty of bass. Then, we can use that to figure out what's happening with your source and/or receiver.

Also, what receiver do you have?
How do you receive TV signals?
How is your TV source connected to the receiver?
What are the audio output settings of the TV source device?
When you feed the TV signal into your receiver, what format(s) does the AVR report it is getting?
Are you using any surround modes in the AVR to modify the TV signal?
