Problem with volume too loud

Postby simonmason » Fri Jul 13, 2012 11:26 am

I just turned on a channel with MLSatRadio this morning and the volume was about double normal level and was distorting. I checked the server and everything appeared normal. I then went and manually reduced the volume on that channel using Windows Volume Control to about 80% (normally I keep them at 100%) and it removed the distortion but still was much louder than other music sources. Is there something going on with Sirius feed?

Playing Sirius here and it sounds normal. Were any changes made to the equalizer settings? Setting the equalizer channels too high could distort the sound.

I didn't knowingly change anything. I only looked at the EQ after hearing the distorted sound. I will check everything thoroughly. There are lots of things that can adjust volume settings!

I found it - using the AUX input on my tuner to feed the SAT radio - recently updated the settings there and inadvertently set input volume to +12db!
