Question about Boston Acoustics TVee Model Two TV Speakers

Open Question

BA tvee 26 background sound overtakes peoples voices on tv shows

Tvee 26 background noise ( music, tires squealing etc) overtake the speaking voices, so you up the volume and that just makes things worse. Most annoying while watching tv shows. If you are watching a movie, you expect the background to be big as life and the tvee 26 does this well. I really just want to improve the quality of the sound over the speakers on my samsung tv. is there a way to do this, or is there a product to do this what will happen if i disconnect the sub woofer.

SOURCE: need the Boston tvee sound bar repaired. Making

The sound bar system was not adequately tested before release and it's obvious. The sub seems to disconnect and reconnect randomly. This also happens when the bar is off. It makes a large bassy pop every so often when it shuts down. It's woken me up at night when it decided to turn on and off. Occasionally I have to power cycle the sub or even change the frequency in order to re-establish a wireless connection. All of this is an occasional occurrence and poses more of an annoyance than anything. It's crappy to have to say that "It works most of the time." It's too bad because the concept is fantastic, and now I question the quality of Boston Acoustics.

SOURCE: i have the tvee soundbar

It is not latching on to the soundbar transmitter. Is the locked light on the device turning on.
Wireless devices are sometimes known to drift. Is the sub silent when the soundbar power is off ?. Even then if its making this sound, the subwoofer amplifier is oscillating at very low frequency. You will need professional help and needs to be repaired.

SOURCE: Have a BA TVee 25

I had this same problem and it was due to their instructions which do not adequately explain the setup procedure.

On my own, I was successful in programming volume up but that was all. I assumed that for volume down I would hold the power button and the VOLUME DOWN button and wait for the flashing light just as I had for volume up. Problem is, you never get a flashing light.

Today, I spoke with a rep from Boston Acoustics who patiently explained that step one of the instructions has to be done the same way each time as it is the step that puts the soundbar into programming mode.

It is only at step 2 that things change.

The solution is to hold the power button and the Volume Up button every time in order to get the system into programming mode. Once the light is flashing, in order to program Volume Down, you then hold the Volume Down button until the light goes solid. Once the light goes solid, then press the volume down button on your remote 4 times slowly. Works like a charm.

Works the same way to program the mute button. Follow step one to get the unit in programming mode. Once the light is flashing, hold down only the mute button until the light goes solid. When the light goes solid, press the mute button slowly 4 times.


OBTW, this was programmed with a Logitech Harmony 650 remote unit.

Voice volume low background volume normal (i.e. music, crowds etc)


some of these sets in the menu have a Hall setting etc that will do exactly that sounds in the background and louder then people talking--its a audio or setup selection in many sets.

It sounds like you left the tv set's internal speakers on after hooking up the sound bar.You should turn off your internal speakers via the Menu on the on screen display and go to audio. There you should find something about the speakers (on/off). Turn off your internal speakers and enjoy the sound bars great sound.

I had this problem with my previous TV (Syntax by Olevia, an off brand). It only happened to me on certain channels, and for certain shows. What is happening is the TV station is broadcasting the audio in Dolby 5.1 format. For some stupid reason, the TV is playing the background speakers (effects) instead of the speaking parts. You get a little bleed-over of the voices into the back speakers, so voices are there but really quiet. Unfortunately my TV didn't have any surround sound options to fix this.

See if your TV has a surround sound option. Otherwise, you will need to connect the TV sound output to a surround sound system that can properly decode the audio channels.

The background music of the dvd movie is playing but there is no sound of the people in the movie speaking. Is the set up setting wrong?


Hello

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

Background sound too loud


Thank you, everyone! I thought maybe I was losing my mind. I can hardly watch a lot of the TV shows anymore due to the inappropriate use of music -- either it's too loud or there's just too darned much of it. Come on, TV producers! You are supposed to get better with time, not worse! Thank goodness I'm not alone.
