Audio Volume Too Low
« on: April 23, 2014, 05:32:41 PM »
I don't know when this started, but I decided to watch a movie tonight and can't hear it over the oxygen and other medical equipment. The system volume is set to maximum as is the volume control for the movie. Is there a hidden way to set the gain?

You might also want to try some noise canceling headphones.  'Course that only works if you're the only one who needs to hear it.  Even just ordinary headphones/earbuds might help to focus the sound to your ears and filter out the ambient noises.

Thanks, Ann. My ears are about all I have left that aren't attached to something.

LOL!  I get that! . . . . and I really don't like things in or on my ears at the best of times. ;)  Hope the app Betsy suggested works for you!

The app that Betsy suggested indeed works, but it's got so many cautions about turning up the volume too high that I was afraid to go above 40% gain. I'm going to experiment with it later.
