Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Dav dz750k When I'm playing a DVD in 5.1 surround sound, I'm not able to hear dialogues whereas other music is coming out fine in all speakers. I have to change my player's sound field to 2 Ch Stereo to hear the dialogues sacrificing the surround sound of the movie. If sound field is set to AFD Multi, dialogues are not audible. What could be the problem?

Check your center channel. Most dialogue is routed to the center channel in surround.

SOURCE: not playing voice but playing music/surround

sounds like you may have a dodgy scart lead.check that none of the pins are loose/damaged. Also check the sound settings on the tv, it may have reset itself to the default sound setting. Or it might just be the audio settings on your dvd player have been adjusted,almost all dvd movies have there own audio adjustments.

SOURCE: How do I get my tv to play through the surround sound

If you have direct cable into the television, you will need to use an audio output if available on the back of your set into your HT system.

If you are using cable w/ a cable box you have two options. You can still connect everything directly into the TV then reroute the audio to the HT system... or, you could hook only video to the TV and audio from the cable box to the HT system. Really up to you.

SOURCE: my coby dvd 925

Go to setup and change it from 5.1 to 2 channel audio. I have no idea why, but it worked for me. Cobyusa.com/solutions is where I found it at. Good luck.

SOURCE: the surround sound only plays on dvd not tv

most tv shows will only be broadcast in 2.0 not 5.1 or higher. if you have a converter box, that may also be the problem.

SOURCE: hook up Sony Bravia Home Theater DAV-HDX277WC

Hi....I haven't hooked mine to the TV yet.....building my cabinet now....but I did hook up the components to make sure they worked and just didnt include a TV on it. My S-Air wireless linked up the first time I tried it....I will say this though, the little wireless transceivers blocks you have to plug into the DVD player and the S-Air do not go in like you would think. They actually look like they are upside down when you get them in, and the must snap in very securely. Make sure they dont just LOOK like they are plugged in. Also, dont get em to far away through too many walls, Try linking it sitting right close to the DVD. Also remember the S-Air remote has its own volume control as well as other controls....

I know I wasnt much help but I just got mine and I will be back with more after I try the surround sound on the TV.

I record music on Tascam dp2. Why can't I hear my music in all spks. on 5.1 surr. dvd player? I can hear other cds in all 5 spks.


When u record music, its important that the background music be at -7db and the vocals should bounce the level meters to just over 0 db,also if u use a mixing console to add more instruments to the mix, the mixed output of the added content MUST BE NO MORE THAN -7db in order to maintain balanced music output to all channels.

Sound and background music and noise is fine


This usually happens on home burnt DVD's

It is the format in which it was recorded that is at fault.
There is little you could do but re-encode the whole thing before you burn it.

Turn off or try the different surround options whilst it is playing.

If it does this with commecial DVD's then you may have set the surround setting by accident to somthing else.

Sound on DVDs


It sounds like she has the player set to output 5.1 surround sound, but only has left and right channel speakers hooked up. Either change the dvd player to only send two channels or hook up a center channel speaker.

The disc in player doesn't match with current sound selection thats why you hear muffled sound.

Emerson dvd player - background sound lauder than dialogue


Greetings surfjax,

If you will allow me to make an assumption, you do not have a 5.1 surround system connected to your DVD player. This is a common experience with users of a standard TV or stereo receiver if a movie is being presented in 5.1.

In a surround sound system the center channel speaker provides almost all the vocal tracks while the side channels will provide music and some background noises. You'll still be able to hear the voices in your side speakers, but it will be muted and over powered by music or sound effects.

Some DVD players allow you to "Downmix" the surround signal to stereo. You might want to look around your sound setup on the DVD player or check your owners manual.

Hope this helps.
Jon

Movie freezes, skips.


Does sound like the laser. Realitically, not worth repairing. I'd say you'd be worth connecting a cheap DVD player to the system - then the Sony can carry on providing the surround sound audio and the new DVD player can provide the video. Then, if the cheap DVD player is still going, it can move to a bedroom TV if and when you replace the surround system....

Otherwise, I would imaging the speaker set (and even the non-working DVD player) on its own might fetch a reasonable price on an auction site - anyone who has a stolen DVD unit will probably be desparate for the speakers as Sony don't sell them separately!
