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.

SOURCE: Nexxtech ESDVD100 DVD player gone bad, how to replace?

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.

SOURCE: The background music of the


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

DTS should be enabled only if your source has a DTS digital audio out connected to the receiver.Mostly only DVD / Bluray players have DTS sound and is outputted through an optical or co-axial port on the back of the player. Its a multichannel digital encryption technology where the signal is sent through one cable and your receiver decodes it into 5.1 or 7.1 channels according to the source.

Ok, I bought some Gigaware speakers (8watt GigaWare 2.0 2/bass subwoofer) and they work just fine, playing internet content and MP3s- until I try to play a DVD. Then, one channel of the audio disappears-...

A couple of things I would check first..

Obviously the settings on the movie audio settings themselves.. the default may be dts or some such thing.

Next.. open the control panel. clik on Sound.. make sure you check all the settings.. clik on the speaker icon and clik configure..

Also check the settings via your sound card software interface.. it sounds like something is set to something other than simple Stereo.. like 5.1 or 7.1 etc.

I doubt it's the dvd player itself.. or the dvd.. more than likely it is a simple conflict in one of the above settings

Good luck

The 'best' audio result will always be subjective, but when it comes to digital multichannel content, the engineers probably had it right, so I'd go with Dolby Digital, THX for movies; and experiemnt with all the others for muical content becaasse any given audio recording can yield surprising new details when you turn DSP loose on it.

When DVD uses DTS Sound, doesn't use 5.1

The bitstream sent out by the BluRay player is selectable via menus on thedisk. And the player itself may have a menu that allows it. Would need to know more about the source.

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.

Only 2 port in the back of the dvd player is working

In some DVD players you need to activate the DOLBY or DTS settings in the audio menu. So you activate those options to get the sounds from all the speakers.

Make sure the DVDs must have DOLBY OR DTS recording.

When playing dolby digital 5.1 surround dvds not getting decoded.i get the sound in all the speakers.

go to your control panel
click the sound icon
under the playback tab select the audio device you want to configure
right click properties
check each tab make sure you have dts / dd ticked

you may have software from creative installed check this to make sure you have the soundcard setup to output 5.1 when available

make sure the sound is configured on power dvd

if you cant get it working that way i suggest trying windows media player 11

also remember the soundcard will only output 5.1 if the source is 5.1 a copied dvd for example could be 2 channel stereo

i hope this helps you out !

Surround center speaker does not work

This is a 5.1 (6 Channel Technology) You should hear only the voice thro the center speaker. If the source you are playing is stereo, however the software splits the source its difficult to seprate the voice track, if the source is a DTS 5.1, then you should hear the voice only thro the center speaker. eg: when you play a DVD movie which is DTS 5.1 then you should hear only the voice track in the center speaker, if the dvd movie is just stereo then you will not hear any audio in the center speaker, while the other four speakers get output, this is the special effect in 5.1 ( 6 channel Output).
