Sound Problems...(Center speaker - No voices)..Please help!
All speakers are hooked up. We know this because when we play a CD where can clearly hear the singer and as well as the band. However when we play a DVD we can only hear the background noises but not the people talking. We ran a "Pink Noise" test and all speakers sounded except the center speaker. How is it that we can hear the Center speaker when a CD is played, but when a DVD is played only the background is heard? Please respond anyone. ASAP. Thanks.

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
Try setting it first on surround mode because it is normal for the rear speakers not to come on when it is the surround mode is off. For the center speakers make sure it is hooked up properly. Follow the instruction if you have one. Lastly I never heard of center speakers have two speakers in it but if it does and you only have one set of wire to it then one of the speakers is no good.
sounds like you need to surround modes. There is usually a Stereo, Dolby, DTS, "virtual surround", 4-speaker mode etc.. When you play a CD or connect to TV it likely defaults to playing stereo or virtual surround.
With real surround, almost all of the voices are coming from the center-channel speaker (normally placed closest to the TV).
Also, check to make sure the center channel is connected properly.
If there is nothing at all from the center channel while watching a DVD, first try resetting the system (unplug the power cord from the sub, and the DC power cord from the media center for 30+ seconds)
If a reset doesn't help this, run the "adaptIQ" setup disc again. Honestly, this is a very odd problem for that system to have. (especially since we know the center speaker works for other sources) I hope this helps.
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.
first check the settings on the audio menu of the dvd player. make sur it is set to 5.1 (if available) otherwise set it to stereo and your system should decode it.
assuming the second step is okay : as other dvd you play seem to work) it still may be that your unit is decoding stereo inputs just fine and 5.1 is not working properly....
so if adjusting audio settings in dvd play back menu dont work,
check that the cables to the satellite speakers are connected correctly and all plugged in soundly ( voice is high frequency,- coming from satellites - the garbled noises you hear are the base ( low freq) elements of voice which are coming from the bass box ( that the X.1 part of 5.1) and so that is obviously working. ,
check if the digital compression option is off.turning it on should make the sound equal.also might want to check your volume setting on the main menu when you turn it on.only problem is you need the remote.hope this helps in some way.
- 82k ^ 0k is normal it is called consumer output. when you go into the + zone that is studio grade pro audio. so this is not your problem... i think either you have a bad output or bad speakers...... try some other speakers,but careful ! not to blow them with loud volume if they are not set up for this unit. hope i could help also try other on board sound settings when trying other speakers imanfix
