Question about Pioneer PDP-5020FD 50 in. Plasma HDTV

Music too loud and drowns out the speech . WHY ????

Do other people find that todays TV and movies are really overwhelmed by the music track. I am hearing impaired and have a bad enough problem following the movie without the extra loud music drowning out the dialogue.
Have directors and producers lost the art of making movies without the special effects overpowering everything ???

I also had this problem. I read elsewhere that this happens when your TV's audio setting are set to surround sound when you don't actually have a 5-speaker system. I changed the settings to regular stereo and it fixed the problem perfectly.

I have noticed the same annoyance. It is OK when the narrator is a trained professional with a strong announcing voice . However when they interview a soft spoken person who has not been trained to have a loud booming voice ,their words are often covered over by dramatic swells in music. The only fix I can think of is to email or write to TV producers. I have sent two emails about the History network but to date they have been ignored. Recently it was on Greatest tank battles where elderly war survivors with interesting things to say were also drowned out by music. Maybe if more people complained or if a blog is created or if enough internet feedback developed, the people who lay in the music might listen.

I think many here are missing the obvious solution which is that we must somehow convince the TV producers that we do not need or want constant music on a TV show.. I believe the musician unions may be behind at least part of this problem. They probably have wormed their way in and have taken over in place of common sense. I don't mind the music so much but anyone with half a brain would know that when an actor or an announcer speaks, there should be no music (or other noise).
Just who was the "genius" who decided that every program, every advertisement, every dialog on TV (or movies) needs to have music?

Regardless of speaker settings, in movie/tv/pc playback this imbalance is extremely annoying. The only way I am going to attempt to correct this is to install an in-line (preferably analog) audio limiter.

How do I turn off the visually impaired voice on my Vizio TV?


One way, (maybe not the best) is if you turn your TV off, the voice should turn off also. Another way is to mute, a visually impaired voice is just the volume on you TV, or do you mean hearing impaired?

Bush 4.1 sound bar cuts out, connected via optical sound cuts out it is intermittent, happens on tv, dvd/blue ray and media player setting. Any ideas how to stop this happening. Have tried rca cables etc


I get a similar issue from my Bush sound bar. The sound drops out when the tv programme/movie etc has a period of silence in the audio track or just very low background music (no speech). As soon as someone begins to speak it starts up, but usually it misses the first couple of words. Bar is connected directly to a Samsung tv via the optical cable. Any ideas?

How can I increase the loudness of the CDs burned on the internal CD-RW drive?


You can use a free software audio editing and recording program called Audacity. Using this program load your stereo track(s) into Audacity, then look in the effects menu and select normalize. Make sure to set highest loudness level to 0 db, which is the maximum digital volume level. You can hear the difference in volume when you use the test button. If you can't still get enough over all volume level with the normalize feature then you will need to compress and limit the stereo track, but I don't suggest getting your over all loudness levels that high because it ruins and lowers the dynamics of your music. Another words when you compress and boost the over all loudness of your album then all your music is at the same highest audio level which is very ear fatiguing. It may sound better to you at first at louder volume levels but you will quickly learn to hate it over time because it does not sound natural. That is why most music today is all about loudness and ear fatigue. And because of the loudness wars going on today every Record company is trying to have the loudest album out there thinking it will sell more copies. It is all false baloney, it really should be about the quality and dynamics of your sound instead of how loud it is.

The vocals on the DVD are being drowned out by the musical parts of the movie


That would seem to indicate a major difference in loudness among the various channels, particularly the Center, where dialog usually appears.

According to the unidentified product's manual and speaker level setup procedures are the speakers about the same volume? Make it so.
