Question about Dynex DX-SC5.1 Sound Card

1 Answer

Only getting 2 speakers working, not 5.1 surround

I have this card connected to a pioneer vsx-818v-k with an optical digital audio cable. I'm only getting sound out of 2 speakers. I've tested the pioneer's surround setup, and I have all the speakers connected correctly. WTF???

    I am having the same problem. When I was using the Dynex card with Vista, the dolby digital worked. Now that I decided to run xp instead, for many reasons, manly because Vista is a pig and the computer had a hard time running it, i only get 2 speaker output through the digital output. I have it set to dolby digital in the audio control panal. I am not running the audio program that came with the card. I tried it first, set it to dolby digital 5.1 and had the same problem. I ran microsoft update and there was a new driver. Installed that. Audio program would not work so I unistalled it. Now I have 2 speaker sound but no dolby digital. Any suggestions??

I have a pioneer receiver vsx 818x 7.1 how do I get the hole 7.1 Workin an I can't get the best sound out of my speakers,


The VXS-818V shouldn't be much different....

Register and download the manual for free at retrevo.com

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Pioneer-VSX-818V-Receivers-manual/id/14715ci276/t/2/

Since the receiver itself has no sources 7.1 onboard, the question obviously involves unnamed external equipment.

Set it and any other equipment in accordance with their manual(s).

I have a pioneer vsx 818 v amp, when I set it up we get noise / beeps etc from the surround sound speakers but then when playing a film in 5.1 we get no sound from the surround speaks ..driving me nuts !...


Hello,
To get sound out of your surround speakers, first off go through the receiver setup and make sure that is correct. Also, usually the best soundfields to use for sourround sound is PLII Movie or dolby digital. Next , make sure the source you are viewing is capable of outputting 5.1 sourround sound. Lastly, it is a good thing to remember that sourround speakers are only intended to reproduce sound effects. You certainly can override it so that all speakers play full range audio, but that is not the intention.
Good Luck

Pioneer VSX 818V No Sound


First thing to check is the Speaker Select Switch. It will say, "A" "AB" or "Both" it will be displayed on the LCD screen as well. Second if that's ok, Check the "Direct" switch. If it's on, turn it off. Generally if it's on, you will see a blue light if it's on (most receiver's)

If you still have No audio, hook up your DVD to the "Direct" input and turn "Direct" on. If you have audio then. The DSP chip is probably bad and you should take it to a shop and have them bench it first to confirm. Hope this helps

Problem for Pioneer VSX-818V-K 5.1 Channels Receiver Surround sound doesn't work, display reads 2CH IN,surround speakers are enabled,automatic test will find surrand speakers


Test with an surround sound media ie. Blu-ray or DVD)_. Disconnect the front and all other speakers that are working to see if sound from the missing speakers are heard. If this doesn't work then start by tracing and checking all the wires from the receiver to the speakers for bad/shorted/open connections.

PLEASE VOTE IF THIS WAS HELPFUL. THANKS & GOOD LUCK.

Pioneer vsx-519 no sound from center and surround


Make sure that the sound field/programme you have selected is dolby digital not stereo.(On the amp)
You also need to check on the display that is says DIGITAL not ANOLOUGE, as only a digital input, Optical fibre cable, HDMI, COAX will be a digital signal.
If you are using red and white rca connectors, it is not going to work, as this is an Anolouge signal.

No Sound from Subwoofer


The original Pioneer subwoofer has its own amplifier built in to the speaker, so the only cable required on the original speaker is a single RCA cable. To connect a different brand subwoofer to the Pioneer you will have to make sure that you have a subwoofer with the same specs. It will need its own built in amp to work, as you can only connect it with one RCA

Reciever only allows 2 channels(speakers) at a time.


I had this problem too. Finally, after using the MCACC setup and making sure all the speakers worked, I found I had to set the source to FM, TV or whatever from the remote control and set the mode to advanced surround sound using the front panal button on the upper right. Had to fool with them a lot. Good luck.

No sound from speakers after connecting to pioneer a/v vsx81


I had the same problem and resolved it last night. You'll also need to connect an audio cable (EVENTHOUGH YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO - to bad pioneer didn't fully implement the HDMI standard in this receiver) solution. I suggest using an Optical cable. This really annoyed me...see the manual on P.17 section #3.

Connecting media center to receiver


Hey there,

Okay let me start with your pc setup. What type of sound card are you using? Are you using onboard? You have to check and see if the sound card or device you are using supports SPDIF passthrough. Basically this does just what it says...passes the surround sound signal through your hardware with no onboard decoding and uses the decoder found on your stereo. I use a soundblaster Audigy and i had to enable passthrough in the audio console. I also had to enable spdif as my default audio playback device. This is in Windows Vista. You also need to go into properties and set the formats your receiver supports. Once that is complete you need to adjust the audio settings in media center and select toslink as your audio output and select 5.1 audio.

Things should work now...BUT...you will only get surround sound audio when watching a source that has dolby 5.1 or DTS. You will not get surround sound in games =( When i watch ota hd shows that have dolby audio, the blue light kicks on in my receiver and i get 5.1 audio. Same goes for watching DVD's. I hope this helps you out
