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.

It sounds like a problem with your centre channel or speaker. The sound of Voices and on-screen, actions in the middle of the screen are played through the centre speaker. General sounds such as music in the background, off-screen events, etc. will be played through other speakers on a home theatre system. Check your connectors coming from your DVD player to your sound system. Are you using a single-cabled digital connector or one for every channel? Check your sound settings as well, i.e., Surround, AC3, Music, etc.
Well let me first ask is the center chanel working? or properly hooked up. Cause most of the times when in 5.1 the talking or "dialog" as you put it comes only through the center channel its just kinda how they do it. Listen to see if the center channel is working. if you are unsure try hooking up a speaker that you know works into the center channel speaker output. If no sound comes out then the reciever possible has blown its center channel. Please follow up with a comment and i will be glad to assist you further thanks, Midwes-tek
erm,, when you say you cant hear voices clearly. do you mean that they seem to be a little lower in "obviousness" than they should be or are they way down ther as the background level is so much higher.
1. a little lower means you need to bring the trebble up and the bass down and bring up the centre and reduce the surround , this is basically tuning the sytem to your room.
you also need to check the dvd setting for audio out to ensure that the settings for the audio on the dvd are set to 5.1 ( if the little black spare connector is connected to your dvd player) or else set to stereo for "normal " palyback.
2. if the voice is way down compared to background sound track.
are you using an amp for the bass channel, this may need to be turned down. or the thing that looks like a spare connector on the end of the cable going to your cd5 unit is not correctly installed. can you tell me what the set up is.
Had same problem with my HDMI connection on my sony bravia and sony theatre system, resolved by conecting a scart lead from the theatre system to one of the free scart sockets on the back of the TV, leave your HDMI connection in place as the DVD signal comes from this,
