Whenever we play a DVD, we are able to hear great background sound, but no people talking. Sometimes it comes & goes, but eventually we have to stop the movie because we can see mouths moving but no sound coming out. Please help!!
Mine was the center speaker wire was not properly seating in the speaker. This is where all the sound for the voices come out. I thought it was something major. try checking them again if you haven't already.

No. The reason they give Academy Awards to SoundMixing, is because some do it great, and some do it bad. Once the dvd is printed, there is nothing you can do about the mix of the sound between background and voices. it's just a bad mix. oh well, the same thing happened to me about a week ago, but as the movie went on, the sound mix either got better, or my ears started to tune into the voices better.
This is gong to sound lame because I don't know the answer but I can point you in the right direction. The same thing happened when I got my new TV, but that was years ago. If you have you TV set to broadcast in surround sound, it sends the talking to a "fifth" speaker in the middle of the room. The background sounds, like thunder and gunshots, are sent to the speakers that project out into the room, so it sounds like the background sound is all around you. HOWEVER if you do not have a surround-sound speaker system, there is no fifth speaker for the voices to go to. Now, i don't remember what the settings are called, but I'll bet if you call the store where you got your tv they can tell you.
Check your speaker connections it sounds like you have a 5.1 or higher sound system. 5.1 means left front speaker, right front speaker, center speaker, right rear speaker, left rear speaker and subwoofer.
Voices in movies all get channeled to the center speaker (you can usually hear it a bit from the right and left front speakers as well). If your center speaker is disconnected or not working, you will only hear the background sounds.
If you are only hearing part of the audio from your DVD player, I would suggest you check your audio settings before seeking repairs.
Audio can be encoded to a DVD in several ways. If the audio on the disc is different than the settings on your DVD player, you may not hear all of the audio layers. For example, if your DVD is encoded in 5.1 Surround Sound, but your DVD player is set only to play basic Stereo, you may only hear portions of the audio.
Try accessing the menu on your DVD player, and look for the audio settings. If there is a higher setting available than is currently selected, try a higher audio setting. A higher setting should also be compatible with lower types of audio encoding.
If this does not improve your audio, or if you need help navigating your product menus, I would recommend giving Pioneer's toll-free support line a call at (800) 421-1404.
I have sometimes hoad this problem when I had the audio mode set incorrectly. The dialogue comes through the center channel and that's where it gets lost. I had to cycle through (I believe) the 3D phonic setting to get it right. Check the fine print in the owner's manual.
