Can barely hear Audio –
Before I say anything else I want to say great work so far on the player - it's great
However saying that I'm going to have (just a little) winge:
With the volume set in SMS to max and with the volume on my TV also set to max, most of the films I've been watching have had an audio level of 'medium' at best - never loud.
This problem has been much worse with the last couple of films I've downloaded - 03.19.06.Underworld.Evolution.2006.DVDSCR.XviD-ESPiSE and Aeon Flux T/S.
In the case of both films, with vol on SMS and TV set to max, the audio has only been barely audioable.
I've been using SMS v1.5 (rev 3 I think).
Has the audio been increased in V1.7 rev 2 ?
I've tried looking under feature requests to see if this has been mentioned, but after scanning seceral pages I couldn't see it.

Yes. I often see feature requests and bug reports about things that have already been implemented or fixed. I'm sure the developers would appreciate it if everyone made sure their comments were about the latest version.

@ironlung - and what about trying this movie on your pc? Maybe it's not the fault of sms/tv but the movie itself. It is a screener afterall
Hi - I am using 1.7 and launching from Swap Magic 3.6. Video plays fine but volume is very very low. I've played the videos directly on my pc and the volume is normal so it is not a problem with the videos. Does anyone know enough about SMS to explain real causes for this problem?
Yes, is there a reason why the volume on SMS is so low? Even after jacking up the volume to max, the volume on this app is disproportionately(sic) lower than anything else I run on my TV. Otherwise though, an excellent program!
EDIT: Switching SMS to NTSC display mode causes a small boost in volume. (I have a PAL TV). This method seems to hold true to all PS2 apps.

Hmm..Solved my low audio problem by reading the manual ;-) RTFM Use the Up /Down buttons during playback to increase the volume.
