'auto volume leveling' LCD TV question...need advice!!!

i have a 47" philips lcd tv(47pfl7432d). one of the features is the 'auto volume leveling' option which is supposed to even out the difference in volume between the commercials and program you're watching. it's a useful feature because there's a usually a noticeable difference in sound volume between the show i'm watching and when the commercials come on. for my set-up, i'm only running regular tv stations via roof-mounted antenna(don't have cable tv or satellite yet). i receive about 15 stations, most of which have the analog and digital/hd equivalent(ex, cbs analog is 5.0 and cbs hd is 5.1. my question is that the 'auto volume leveling' feature only works for the analog stations. when i switch to the digital/hd stations, the feature will not let me select it. this is a little annoying since obviously if you have an hd tv, you're going to watch the hd channels. i've called philips support, they sent out a tech who couldn't answer the problem either. he's supposed to get back to me. the tv is only 4 months old and otherwise works perfectly. any thoughts???
