noticed this phenomenon on a LOT of PC sound hardware
(i.e. NOT just the DVB card). The analog audio outputs don't
seem to meet HiFi input level specs.
What I did add in my mod concerning analog audio are three

- Volume steepness. At the moment your usual VDR volume
range is roughly from 220-255. Anything below 220 is almost
like muting. Using the volume steepness allows you to change
this, so that you can use the whole VDR volume control range.
- Nite View Volume: This can be used for viewing at night w/o
waking the neighbors or having to change your volume setting.

output does not support this. Mute doesn't either (which I never
