Question about Flat Panel Televisions

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.

    When watching a TV show the background music is so lound you can't hear the people on the show talking, it's all background.

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

I have succesfully connected my dynex 32" lcd hdtv 720p 60hz to my rogers digital box and my xbox but i only have room to connect my audio cables for my surround sound speakers to my tv cables there is no...


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.

I bought a insignia plasma tv and a panasonic surround sound with blue ray. Both were open box and no manuel. I hooked up the surround sound and it works good with the blue ray. I can not get it to work...


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.

Music on DVDs is louder than the dialogue.


In the Audio set up menu, see if there is a setting to turn off surround sound. I believe it's in your owners manual also. LMK

Hooking up surround sound to TV


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.

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. If I have misunderstood you then please comment before rating badly
