TV Audio Level
« on: April 27, 2024, 10:54:52 am »

I use MC's internal volume control.  I'm looking, but I'm not finding anything on this:

  • During playback, the audio level of TV (live or recorded) requires a setting of 75-80% of full volume.
  • When I switch to my ripped CDs or internet radio, the same listening level requires about 45/50% of full volume.

Is there anything I can do to increase the starting volume level of TV Audio or decrease the starting level CD playback?

I am not aware of anything that can be done to achieve that.  Volume is a global setting I believe.

Hi lhwidget,
That's a very good and interesting question you've posted,

Dear Yaobing and MC team i can also valid this request and much others, users of the TV feature within MC,  aswell I'm guessing :-)

The difference of level, like lhwidget describes is huge.
Fyi I'm using Sat>iP tuners and no volume control within MC, but noticing the same kind of differences.
Each time you switch back to audio only sources, like ripped audio or Internet radio the difference in level can be frightening loud.

Just an idea, since we're able to have DSP level limiting and even adaptive leveling, would it make sense to weight internally the TV audio level ?

Thanks !

I sure hope so.  I was really surprised to see no response to this.  I started using JRiver for TV 3-6 years ago and it has always done this.  Maybe there aren't that many of us using JRiver for everything like I do, but it would be really great to put an adjustable control somewhere for TV volume, or maybe level the volume levels somewhere in the program.  I would be happy with either solution.  I'm just glad I'm not the only one :)

Read the Volume topic on the wiki.  And also the WDM topic may be useful.

Thanks Jim,
Sorry for the late reply (life got in the way...).  I've just finished reading the Volume and WDM topics in the wiki and I'm not seeing anything about ways to change the audio volume of video output or audio output volume relative to each other.

This situation is very consistent on three different PCs:
  • The same actual audio output for TV files and audio requires a large volume setting change
  • About 45% (internal Volume setting) for audio files
  • About 75% (internal volume setting) for the same audio volume when playing live or recorded TV.

Is there anything else in the option settings that would let me change the relative volume of one or the other?

Jay

There is probably nothing a user can try to do for now.  I will think about this and see if we can add an option to set TV audio volume higher on TV start up.

If you use internal volume, zones should be able to keep individual settings for different types of media.
