Default Re: Audio from Venue coming into PT over HDx is about -20 db

That is correct electrically. I should have said that 0dB on the meters is referenced differently, PT references 0dB as 0dBfs while on the Venue 0 dB will equal -18 to -20dB in PT. Thus you will always be -18 to -20 dB down in PT if your Venue meters are set for Peak. Optimum input for PT should come in between -12 to -8 dB and the easiest way to get that gain back is to switch to RMS metering.
