1. There is a setting (p. 209 Owner's manual) that can be used to normalize the volume levels of your sources (if the difference bothers you).I figured it out. I have a separate amp for my surround speakers and the power cord came loose in the middle of me moving my equipment rack in and out. I do have a couple of other questions. Cable and Netflix are the same volume but when I play a blue ray on my PS3 the volume is lower. When my Outlaw 990 was in the system all my sources were the same volume. Also when playing blue rays the display reads multi channel in 7.1. Shouldn't it say Dolby digital or DTS etc. thx again.
2. The PS3 is decoding the DD/DTS to PCM 7.1. Set it to "bitstream" so the DD/DTS passes untouched and then the AVP can decode it.
