LG LB650V, SC-BTT405 Panasonic Home theatre system. Netflix sound is quite a bit lower than everything else, ie broadcast tv or Youtube, is that normal?

Netflix is (much) softer for us too - we use an 80% volume setting

Ah, thanks for that. I have Netflix on 80%, if I used that on anything else the walls would be shaking. So its just a Netflix issue then, Youtube I have about 50%.

Yeah it's much lower on my Panasonic TV watching through the app. Have to have the tv volume turned up to about 30-35 while watching Netflix, always forget to turn it back down and get blasted when I switch back to Freeview!! :)

How are you connecting the TV and home theatre?
ARC or optical?

I don't know if it helps anyone, but I found the sound a bit soft using Netflix on my Samsung Smart TV.  I was just fiddling around with the tv's sound settings and it's a lot louder on the movie setting.

Now that's a good suggestion to try, thanks. We have the same issue with Netflix via an Xbox360 to a Sharp TV. Volume upwards of 90% while everything else in the 20's. Thankfully the TV remembers volumes based on inputs so we don't get blasted when changing to other sources.

I watch Netflix via the PS4 through HDMI to the Amp and the sound is fine in that it match's the TV broadcast sound level; I have noticed on the PS4 Media Player App a Sound level tool to change the Apps volume I agree with 'jmh' have a play with the TV's sound setup.
