Question about NexxTech ESDVD100 System

Open Question

DTS Sounds Like Crap.

When i select the DTS audio setting on a DVD that has DTS it sounds like the channels are switching from speaker to speaker. The sound also goes low then high at the same time. When it's in any other audio setting there is no problem. I had returned one unit back to the store only to get another one with the same problem. I have just chalked it up to that this is because it's a bad batch of systems manufactured. So i just watch movies in 5.1 instead. But if there is a way to fix the problem then that would be great.

You can try cleaning it with a dvd disk cleaner first. If that dont work by a cheap dvd player and run it to the inputs on the back of the surround player.

Yes, fortunately this is only a minor setting which needs to be set right. Although i have never worked on this unit before, all you need to do is to have a look on the remote itself.

The problem is that the player is set to play through the wrong channels. Hence, you can hear the background music and sound, but not the voices. This is because the voice is sent to a channel which does not exist.

On the remote there is usually a button saying channel or sound channel...Something in this line. This will enable you to cycle through the sound channels(2.0 ; 5.1 ; 7.1 etc)

If you cannot find this button on the remote, you will need to have a look around in the sound setting menu.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

On the remote try scrolling through the settings from the DTS button and also make sure you have the correct audio source selected. I switched to the optical cable but, then found that the better sound for my room came from the RCA set-up.
Good Luck and I hope this helps.

Lg home theater to lg plasma tv

This is a typical problem with TV broadcast UNLESS you use a matrix DSP surround sound mode, most DVD audio is either Dolby digital 5.1 surround or DTS multi-channel surround sound, unless you are viewing a HDTV broadcast with 5.1 Digital sound connected from the TV to the receiver then you are probably receiving a 2 channel Stereo sound format, I would suggest that you try to set your TV input mode to a audio Dolby Pro- Logic which will yield 5.1 and should engage all speakers.

HTddw670 play only 3.1

The problem sounds like it is the dvd player, have you set-up the audio output menu on the dvd players setup menu? Some dvd units default to a 2 channel stereo output, what is required is you need to enter the setuo menu and enable a dolby digital 5.1 output or the DTS/Bitsteam audio output option. Also be sure to use a digital signal cable connection.

Cant turn on dts on dvd player

First check that the DVD has DTS (digital theater sound). Then you may need to change the audio option. In the main menu of the dvd go to sound options or set-up and check that its not 5.1 or some other audio option and is in DTS.

You did not list the make or model of your dvd player and or receiver, It would help if I had this info.

I Can't Use DTS

hey... just reading the manual.. p28 "enjoying the sound effects" note says that "this machine is not equipped with dts digital surround decoder. when you select digital sound, sound is not output during playback disc with dts." not sure of the implications of this, but sounds like the problem you spoke of
