Video Bumpers way to loud

Question

As you can see in the Title already, my problem is, that the sound of the video bumpers are way to loud when they start with CV. It doesn't matter how much i turn the volume down over CV schedule, its much louder then anything else in the sequence. But it appears to happen only for video bumper, not for audio format bumpers or else. And yes, it happens with every video bumper, e.g. Countdown, Courtesy, etc. pp.

Maybe one of you guys has an idea how to solve it. Kodi is running on my PC, win 10, newest kodi and newest CV.

Adieu! :)

It's because you have pass-through set in Kodi for audio.  Kodi can't control the volume of audio that is just being passed directly to the AVR for decoding.

To clarify on this answer, some of your videos that have sound formats that your receiver supports for bitstreaming (Dolby Digital for example) are going directly to your receiver and cannot be altered in any way by Kodi or CV. The rest of the files with formats your receiver doesn't support (maybe AAC for example) can be controlled by Kodi as it's processing them locally before sending them on to your receiver.

You could turn off all bitstreaming in Kodi, but that will effect the sound quality of formats above 5.1 audio, so I wouldn't recommend it.

The best thing you can do is find the videos in your library that are being processed locally and boost their volume levels in an editing program so they sound better to your ear on your system.
