Compressor 4.3.1 -- 5.1 mix fold down are low
on Feb 1, 2017 at 5:28:22 pm

I'm not sure where to post this questions so I thought I'd try here. I have a professionally mixed 5.1 feature film. It sounds great. It was mixed in a post facility in a 5.1 mixing room so the mix is not the problem.

When I make a Blu-Ray I encoded the 6 stems of the 5.1 mix in Compressor. This also does an LTRT fold down. The problem I am running into is the client plays the disc on a system with a receiver to decode the 5.1 and it sounds great. He takes it home to his house and his Blu-ray plugs directly into his TV with an HDMI cable, no 5.1 decoding. He tells me the stereo (really LTRT) mix is very low and he has to crank up his TV to hear it. He says he doesn't have this problem with store bought Blu-Rays.

Has anyone run into this? I've been authoring Blu-Rays this way with Compressor for audio and Encore to make the discs for years and never heard of a problem.

Does anyone know if there are some settings in compressor that have to be changed? In the Compressor that came with FCP7 it was different. Version 4.3.1 has more options.

I'd appreciate any advice from someone that actually uses compressor and make 5.1 fold downs.

TIA.

More likely a setting on his TV that's the issue.

I keep saying that to the producer but he insists two other people watched it with blu-ray players straight into the TV and have the same problem. I played it for him with a blu-ray player into my color grading monitor and RCA outs from the player to my Mackie mixer and it sounded fine in stereo, so I agree must be on their end, but still just checking.

Can you create a stereo version just to mollify him?

I have the LTRT that was created during the 5.1 mix at the post house, but they don't want to use it so... at a loss here.

Well at least as a test- so they can hear how it's meant to sound.
