Here is my problem.

I bought a onkyo home theater in march and was not impressed after great product reviews from others. I thought my receiver was not powerful enough since it was not as loud as I desired.

Soon after that I traced it to a problem with windows vista.

I fixed the problem somehow. I don't even know how.

Its been working great since, until today.

I had to do a full recovery due to a lightening storm corrupting my hard drives.

Now I am back to my same problem. I used to be able to watch movies on 35-45 setting when it was working correct...45 being loud/perfect. Now I have to crank the receiver to 70 to get it loud.

Windows is set to max in the bar.

I tried multi channel set to 7.1 analog in windows.

I tried digital out via HDMI (only allows setting to stereo for some reason)

same results.

I have updated windows and my sound drivers.

Any help would be very appreciated
