    thank you all for solving above sound problem. It was a basic setting involving the speaker section of the program menu. We had to choose (stereo) mode and the sound.came back. The mouth sounds of the actors are now being heard. Thank you and the Fixya people. The ten dollars was well worth it. eliminating calls to the mfr and their dream team. I reccomend fixya highly and the pay pal method of payment is an excellent asset. Dominic from Detroit

Ive experienced this problem myself and what i did was checking the connection from the sound system to the dvd player if its connected properly. second was checking the settings from the dvd player which is the audio settings on it. when i havent done this yet was the divx files or avi files was function correctly or it has a sound and voice but other orignal dvd was getting a problem just like yours so after i did all the checkings all movies was playing just as i want it to be. otherwise if still the problem persist then try another dvd player from your current sound system or another sound system to the current dvd. hope that helps!
by the way the movie that i was talking about when ive got the problem was the pirates of the carribean at worlds end.

thank you for using fixya and happy holidays!

If there is a setting for subtitles and audio for the playback of movies... check that.... it may be set to the wrong settings

    what i mean i guess is that those sounds can be divided into channels.... i believe you can set options on the system to exclude those sounds

You need to play Only original Movie DVDs for getting sound in all speaker...

    I believe your issue are those red/white RCA cords. They will not carry the entire 5.1 Dolby Digital signal



    You need to run an HMDI cord from the DVD player to the Receiever, and
    then another HDMI cord from the reciever to your projector.



    OR to save a few bucks from having to buy another expensive HDMI cord,
    buy a optical or coaxial digital cord and run that from your DVD player
    to your reciever.



    Set the correct input on your receiver and you should be all set.

When a movie is playing, you can hear all sounds except the actors voices....they are mumbled.


The voices are probably coming out on one of the channels that has a bad speaker, bad wire, loose connector, or bad output. If you have the audio set to 5.1 output, change it to two-channel stereo output. The voices should return to normal.

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.

When watching a DVD, the surround sound plays all background music but the actors voices are not heard - can hear music and voices in 2 speaker only - TV programs play in 2, 3, and 5 speaker mode.


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.

Great sound, no voices


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.

This is not a problem, this means that your system is working. Polar Express was recorded in Surround Sound with separate tracks for each speaker channel. In most movies you will find that the rear speakers will only play certain sound effects so that it appears they are coming from behind you (gun shot, train, fireworks). Most of the diaglouge will come through the center channel and music/effects through the front left and right, with bass coming from the subwoofer.

Now, you can still hear more from the rear speakers if you like this enveloping effect, or if you like your music coming from all directions. There are Sound Effects options to have the front and back speakers always playing the front track, there is Dolby Pro Logic II that turns stereo sounds (like many TV shows) automatically into 5.1 Surround Sound, and you can also individually change the volume of each speaker.

These are all explained on page 29 of your owner's manual under Sound Options. If you need specific button to button help, let me kow.

No sound


Sounds to me like your center speaker is either not connected, or somehow not working. The not working part could be explained by a failed speaker or, possibly a failed amp in the unit.
