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