strange sound on movies

The movies on Shaw's Movie Central and Encore Avenue have annoying "gain pumping".


When there is no dialog, background music or sound effects, the volume of white noise is raised to a very high level - like the sound of wind through a tunnel. It's as if the audio void must be filled with noise. I complained about this about 2 years ago, but nothing changed, so we don't watch these channels.


Now, Turner Classic Movies (Channel 42 in Victoria) - the only channel that features old movies -  started the same thing 2 days ago.


Please, please can someone helop me on this?
