I think your problem may be a dolby digital one. DD is 20 dB lower in voloume than non - DD. This is a separate issue. Fox is another 24 dB still lower.
But FOX over the air digital is not broadcast in DD 5.1 (not normally). Whatever is broadcast in FOX widescreen is generally a lot softer than any other Digital over the air channel that I receive (I'm in Philadelphia).
Normally my volume control is in the 50s for all digital philadelphia stations. But for FOX widescreen, I have to set it in the upper 60s. This causes a major problem when it switches to local commercials, where the sound level is more like the other stations. But at the FOX widescreen level, those local commercials are unbearably loud.
Clearly the FOX widescreen programming is much softer than it should be.
