Movie Volume automation

Question

So I was watching Black Panther last night (RIP Chadwick Boseman) and I noticed the volume of the movie was a lot lower compared to the bumpers and trailers that played before it so I have to crank it up on my receiver several decibels. Is there a way to automate the volume in a sequence so when the movie starts the volumes goes to a specific level on the receiver?

There's an option to change the volume of your bumpers but only if you're not bitstreaming them.  If you are bitstreaming both your bumpers and movie, then it bypasses all the Kodi audio options.  If you're not bitstreaming your movie, you can open the options while it's playing and check the playback volume.  I've had mine be set lower before and it's similar to what you're experiencing.

Yea I am bitstreaming the movie in Dolby atmos. I noticed the lower volume a lot with Disney properties (Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar) so I did not not know if it was a self contained issue. I am wondering now my system uses CEC. Is there a way to send a CEC command to my receiver to turn the volume up from CV

KODI supports CEC, but I guess it would depends on whether your HTPC does.

You'd probably have to set some kind of action module to trigger it.  Alternatively, if your AVR is networked, you may be able to use an action module to directly access your AVR over the network to change the volume.

Interesting could you explain how to do that with an action module? My receiver is connected to my network

Here's a link that explains action modules.

Whether you can remotely control your volume via the network would likely depend on your make and model of your receiver.  You may also have to find an API for your receiver in order to control it via the network.
