Complain to whichever broadcaster is producing the quiet signal.  The A180, 
like all digital-TV capture cards, doesn't do any encoding; the low sound level 
is getting put in by the broadcaster.  Beyond that, you're stuck with tweaking 
th volume up/down (for me, it's about a 3-dB difference between analog and 
digital sources).
