I'm not sure if this has to do with surround sound or what, but ever since I bought this tv, the secondary audio (crowd noise, background music, laugh tracks, etc.) is so loud that it drowns out the primary audio (dialog, play-by-play). I can't seem to figure out which part of the setup to go to. It's very annoying. There has to be a way to manipulate the audio so that the background goes to its normal place in the mix. Can you suggest anything? Thanks.

Re: secondary audio drowns out primary audio
If you are using a surround sound receiver for your audio, you need to change the surround mode. i like mine set up for dolby pro logic. there are many different settings on the new recievers so experiment until you find one that you like.
if your sound comes only through the tv, use the audio menu and set it to stereo, although with some brands "surround" will get rid of this problem

Here are the most common reasons you may not have sound.
Starting with the most common solutions for no sound from TV:
Television Has No Sound Answer 1: Make sure TV is not muted.
Television Has No Sound Answer 2: Make sure the TV is not set to SAP (secondary audio protocol)
Television Has No Sound Answer 3: Make sure TV input is correct (someone may have accidentally pressed the "aux" input button or similar causing the TV to use an input with no sound going to it)
Television Has No Sound Answer 4: Make sure there is not a pair of headphones connected to the TV audio out jack on the side or front of your TV.
Television Has No Sound Answer 5: Check all of the cables that are connected into the back of your TV. (it is possible the TV was moved slightly and a cable has become disconnected or loose)
Television Has No Sound Answer 6: If you have a receiver or surround sound connected to your TV, turn it on and see if you get sound coming from the external speakers.
Television Has No Sound Answer 7: Turn off the TV, cable box, and anything else connected to the TV. Sometimes turning everything off and then back on can fix the problem.
Looks like you have inadvertently enabled some sound effect, usually these effects can be enabled/ disabled form sounds menu. They will have names like surround, movie hall, concert etc. Go to the sound settings and disable any activated audio effects.
What cables are you using for the XBOX and the digital box? What surround sound system are you using (what receiver)? Which model of Dynex 32" TV do you have? Looking at the DX-L32-10A, I can connect both devices to the TV and then the audio out to the surround sound system.
If HDMI, then that will carry the audio to the TV and then you would need an audio cable from the audio out on the TV to the surround sound speakers. Similarly, if you use component video and the audio cable combination, there are 2 component video jacks and 3 audio-in jacks on the rear of the TV. Then connect another cable from the audio out of the TV to the surround sound system. (This TV has one audio out and a headphone jack.)
If you previously had the audio going from the Rogers digital box directly to the surround sound system, you need to reroute things unless there are two or more sets of audio in jacks on the surround sound system. Some surround sound system can take several HDMI in cables and then route it to the TV on a HDMI out port.
Without more information, I can't be sure of the best option for your cables.
I hope this gets you started and please provide more information for additional suggestions.
Basically, you have to use the output audio from the TV to go to the receiver.
On the TV, there should be a red and white audio output jacks for left and right. Or, if the TV has it, the best audio output to use for surround sound is optical output. You'll have to buy a optical cable for this.
Not entirely sure what the problem is.
You should have Two RCA outputs (left and right) from the TV. These plug into the surround decoder, it decodes the dolby and provides 4 or more outputs for speakers.
