Default Do all HD DVDs have horrible audio or is it just me?

I have watched 3 HD DVDs so far, and they all have been very quiet, or the talking will be very quiet but noises and explosions will be very loud. I just started watching Children of Men and my volume is at the max and I can barely hear people's conversations it is so quiet.

I am using the Xbox 360 add on drive on a 32" sharp LCD 1080p gaming HD TV, using a component cable. For the most part games/DVDs/Blu Rays work perfectly fine but for some reason HD DVDs are always really quiet. Is there some setting that will magically fix this problem? My settings are on Dolby Digital 5.1 and the Dynamic Control Range is turned on. I like the quality of HD DVDs but if I can't hear what is going on in movies I won't be purchasing any more HD DVDs.

So if anyone has any suggestions as to what the problem is or how to fix it please let me know.

One thing that might help is turing off the Dynamic Control Range....give that a shot

It has to be something in your settings or perhaps you have a bad output on your player. I have the A1 and the sound on most HD DVD's is exceptional.

You don't need to double post your topics. Reffer to the other thread.

Do you have a surround sound system? Didn't say that in your post.

I also have the ad on and don't encounter the same problems you have.
