Secondary audio drowns out primary audio

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.

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

We are trying to hook up our 65" Mitsubishi DLP TV to our JVC surround sound...basically we can get the DVD to work with surround sound but when we have the tv on our sound doesn't come out of our...


That cable doesn't exist. You can't just shoot electrons into one end of a copper cable and have light come out the other end.

My $.02...

Treat your TV like the primary user of the Hi-Def Video ONLY, not the source of any audio. Ask yourself, does it really NEED to be in an audio chain if it doesn't tune the station off the air?

Your JVC should be the primary destination of high-end audio, directly from, say, the Cable Box' while the Hi-Def video is sent to the TV.

Zigzagging good audio and video through the room to devices that don't need it is expensive and wasteful, plus it adds complexity and unnecessary connections that add nothing but could fail.

You have to get an optical audio cord.

The optical output on the vizio is right next to the ac cord. Make sure that your audio amp has the same input conection.

Can't transfer dubbed audio (secondary sound) using firewire.


Audio Dubbing on DV: Here's how you do this: Play your tape on the TRV-9 and feed the signal into the TRV-900, using the Firewire connector. Set the TRV-900's audio option to record in the 12-bit mode. When this is done, you will have the video re-recorded on the TRV-900 and the audio laid down on the primary 12-bit audio channel. Then, you can run the tape back through for a 2nd pass in the TRV-900, with the recorder set to the audio-dubbing mode. The audio you put into the TRV-900 this time, will be recorded on the secondary 12-bit channel. You can select either 12-bit channel when you play the edited tape back or you can mix both stereo channels into the output. Once you record on the 16-bit channel, you can't dub audio back onto that recording, without erasing the original channel, as the recording space for both 12-bit channels is occupied. You can't selectively re-record just audio onto the 16-bit channel either, without the video being re-recorded along with it. Both video and audio are sent over the same Firewire connector, so you can't input them from mixed sources, as you can with analog recordings. Only the secondary 12-bit audio channel can be used in the audio-dubbing mode. You can't dub onto the 16-bit channel or onto the primary 12-bit channel. The primary 12-bit channel can be used only when you're recording video along with it.
