Jim,
The CCDs in your camera will always give a correctly exposed image at a set amount of light - which is always a constant.
Controlling the incoming light to the CCDs can be done by either the iris or the shutter speed - or the gain switch.
Therefore, since shutter speed is a function of the exposure control as much as lens aperture, if you're struggling for the correct exposure indoors anyway and you've used up all the gain, you will just have to add light to the subject.
There just isn't any other magic way.
