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

Some TV's have sound settings to empathies voice. If the TV has a centre speaker you can increase the sound output on that. That will make voices louder.
However many people do complain about loud music drowning out voices on TV. The problem is that movies were meant to be seen in cinemas and TV sound systems don't match up to that. If you can't find a solution consider a surround sound system as this will correct the sound problems on movies.
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.
to connect audio from tv to receiver.Use the monitor out(audio) from tv to receiver .The tv will only put out left/right audio .Also when using the audio out from Sony tv sometimes you cannot use both the internal speakers from tv and audio out from tv to receiver at the same time..Make sure audio is set up on TV menu for audio out..
HELLO . WELL THE DIFFRENCE BETWEEN THEM IS THAT THEY ARE TUNER'S AND THEY ARE SEPRATE FROM EACH OTHER.!!! JUST LIKE THE VHS TUNER'S YOU HAVE .!!! THERE IS THE PRIMARY WITCH .!!! WOULD BE (A) AND THEN THE SECONDARY WITCH WOULD BE (B) IT SOUND'S LIKE YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE AUDIO BOARD. OR THE (IC'S) ON THE BOARD. IT WOULD BE CHEPER TO DO. IF YOU KNOW HOW.? " WELL "GOOD LUCK"
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.
