I have a Pioneer Elite 37VSX and when I have it hooked up to my dvd player (digital source) every time it starts the display reads:


dial: norm

dial: norm

offset +1

offset +1


I was wondering what this meant and if it overrode the existing settings programed in.


Thanks.

It has to do with the dialog normalization on Dolby Digital soundtracks. I don't know the details, but I think it corrects for output levels for the center and other channels relative to a reference level embedded in the bit stream. It's also suppose to correct for input levels when switching between sources.
