Audio level is low even when you use the cable box remote and turn the
volume up?  I run into this occasionally after the cable box is
powered off.  I need to go and turn the volume back up.

And I agree about serial port channel changes.  They are 100% reliable
for me... much nicer than IR channel changes I used to deal with.
