I like having the volume control on the remote control my TV volume, but would kindly request that Magic TV look at having some form of volume level control in the menu. The audio output level from my Magic TV unit is a lot louder compared to my Sky TV decoder, DVD/VHS recorder and standard TV channels. The later 3 are all about the same level. Just get a high volume jump when I switch to the Magic TV unit.
I too have a far higher volume from the MagicTV. Though if I am watching TV3, and switch to BitStream On and output in Dolby Digital, the volume level is then pretty much the same as all my other components.
The volume level for Bitstream OFF is, ideally, what needs to be reduced slightly.
