Surround sound menu

I was watching a movie and I entered the surround sound menu to adjust the distances on my speakers, but I must have hit some button that I didn't mean to. The screen when blue and said progressive scan mode. I still get an image, but when i in the set up menu, the option for adjusting my speaker distances isn't there. I've looked in the owners manual but it doesn't help

I have to turn sound up to 48-49 to watch a movie and get good sound. Seems it should loud in the 20's.


Most movies are mixed at a much lower volume than CD's because there is a THX standard of 85dB which allows for greater headroom. The amount you have to turn up the gain on your amp is relative to the sensitivity of your speakers and the distance you are from them; every time you double the distance from your speaker you lose 6dB.
Most stock surround sound speakers have a lower sensitivity, meaning less SPL per watt/meter distance.

I have a sony STR-DE897 and my rear speakers dont get sound when plugged into the surround back ports..Is there a certain setting in order for the rear surround spreakers to work? or does that mean the...


There are a few things required for the rear surround channels to operate;

1. The surround back channels must be enabled in the surround setup menu.

2. The media being played through the receiver must have audio encoded for the rear surround
channels. There are only a few exceptions to this but I'll exclude the explanation for simplicity.

3. The audio level of the speaker channels must be set high enough to be audible.


Enter the surround setup menu with your remote. Use the center button on the remote to toggle through the selections, press down on it to enter the selection.
You will navigate to a selection in the surround setup menu that says "surround back" or S/B with a selectable yes or no indication. Press on the center button to enable them.

Media like DVD or Blu-ray that has 6.1 or 7.1 channel audio has separate, or often referred to as "discrete" or "matrixed" audio intended for playback through surround rear speakers, depending on the music or movie. If your media is encoded for 5.1, then there will be no audio sent to these speakers. However, with the different modes of on-board digital processing of this receiver you can still have audio through these speakers.

Last but not least is the actual playing level of these rear surround channels. They may simply be adjusted to quietly. Enter the setup menu with remote, choose "level" and navigate to the rear surround channels. You can adjust the level up or down in 1/2 dB level increments by toggling left or right with the center button. Each surround channel can and should be adjusted independently and equally.

Should all the surround sound speakers be working when I am watching satelite TV? Mine do not, just the front left & front right have sound.


All speakers should be working. The display on the Sony unit will tell you which speakers are enabled with a box illuminated and each speaker that is decoding with the speakers abrevation eg SL for surround left also illuminated. If these are not displaying then you need to check your playback mode. If play back is set to 2CH you will only get the front speakers. Try setting play back to AFD ProLogicII, Movie, or Music. If this does not get the speakers running then check the speaker configuration in the setup menu. It should be set to 5.1, if not set it and press enter to save it. If this is setup correctly then try the level settings in your menu. Each speaker has a setting that can be adjusted up or down to effect the loudness of the speakers. If this does not do it then check the connectons at each end of the suround speakers ie, at the receiver and at the speaker.

Did you try changing the front & center speakers to a higher level as well as setting the surrounds to a lower level? Are all speakers using the same wire gage?

hi yes you can do this press AUD button near the on/off/volume control momentarily to step through the following audio adjustment options volume, bass,treble, balance (left to right) and fader (front to back). when the desired option appears in the display, rotate the volume control knob to adjust that audio feature. When no adjustments have been made for three seconds, the unit will resume normal operation. so you can fade the speakers to however you want them...hope this helps

Sony STR 1200 audio-visual sync


Yes it can be fixed.

Enter the speaker setup menu and toggle till you get to the selection for speaker distance. Assuming that you have your speakers properly positioned for correct reproduction of 5.1 surround sound, decreasing the setting for speaker distance will help. Start with 3-4 feet closer from the current setting. This enables the on board DSP (digital signal processor) to delay in milliseconds, the sound output for closer distance settings. It can also advance in milliseconds as well for further distance settings FYI.

Rear Speakers dont work


THe rear speakers are usually for the surround sound experience. What kind of movies do you watch? Usually the action movies have a lot of surround sound, calm movies not so much. And for the music, the same thing applies. Atleast for my system.

Hope this helps.
