I own two tvs. The one in my living room has Fox News and CNN at the same or just about the same volume. The one in my bedroom has Fox at a noticeably higher volume. One in our clubhouse has them at pretty much the same, while my neighbors has Fox slightly higher.
Please take a minute and let me know if there is a difference on your sets. No harm will come from tuning into the opposition for a few seconds.
Thanks.

I would think that comes down to the individual TV audio settings and what each manufacturer considers "standard." Makes sense to me that they could be slightly different. Would be odd to me if they were the same exact TV and at the same volume level sounding different. Again, that would have to come down to individual hardware though I'd presume.

p.s. niiiiiiiiice way to subtly get people to try to understand other peoples opinions/views. I see what ya did there. =)

I don't see any sense in having the manufacturer set Channel 21 higher than 20. I don't know if the cable system does it or if each network chooses the volume. I have noticed some commercials are louder than the program, which leads me to think its the network that does it.
I can't spell subtle, its not my strong point.

There's a setting on many newer tv's that equalizes the volume between channels and on the same channel (they DO program commercials to be louder on many channels). It seems likely, if your LR tv is a newer one, that you have that enabled and it's filtering your selections.

Trying to look up what that control is called. It's in your audio menu if you have it. I'm away from the tv I have that does it, but will edit if I find the info.

Edit: AVL or Automatic Volume Leveling ON will equalize volumes between channels and on the same channel. It is modulated when received and then broadcast to you. Turn it OFF to receive unmoderated volumes.

Note : this from Google. I'm not sure that's the only name for this setting, as I think mine called it something else, but it will be this or something similarly vague in your audio settings.

In any case, I think it's the tv, nor the station or provider, that's giving you variable experiences.

I had about the same problem with the sound in the TV, everything was decided with the help of the internal settings of the TV to equalize the sound

If your cable company digitally compresses channels differently, that can cause variation in volume and picture quality.

It is also possible that the content provider broadcasts with different defaults.

Usually this sort of thing is most notable when a local commercial is inserted into a national broadcast by your cable company.

Also may depend on amount of hard and soft surfaces as far as acoustics and size and even shape of room. Play any TV in a bare room with hard floors and walls and it will make more unpleasant noise than usual.

Lots of knick knacks would even diffuse sound some.
