When playing a DVD movir with multiple channel audio input from DVD/CD player to AV, I do not get dialogue from center channel speakers. Center chanel audio sound from speakers does occur when a music CD is played from the same DVD/CD Player.

Re: Center Channel Audio
Pleae try using the usual analog (stereo connecion) then set to Theater of Dolby surrond and see if you get a center dialogue. If you are using a dsicrete conection from your DVD player to amplifier then you must be having an audio setting with your DVD to get the center audio to work. otherwise if you are already using steroa conections only from your DVD player then you just check your DSP settings set to movie... like theater, cinema dolby prologic...etc. that is where you will only get the center sound to work.

I've tried using the balance for left and right speakers, and when the receiver is acting up with the right speaker having a low volume, I tried moving the balance all the way over to the right speaker. The right speaker volume will not increase in volume but the left speaker will decrease in volume.
Just to clarify, the center and the rear speakers are balanced. The issue only happens sometimes when I first power on the receiver I will have no center channel. If I leave everything alone for a few mins, the center channel will come on.
So it seems to me that something one the receiver is going. The question is, can anyone suggest a physical repair for the receiver for these symptoms?
IF any other source plays fine with the RR speaker, and IF it only happens with the DVD player and IF you're using the 5.1 analog audio feeds to the STR, maybe the audio on that channel is **** from the player. You could prove that by temporarily swapping the RR input from the DVD to any other channel input and test it at a medium level.
If it stays with the DVD RR output, the player or the cable would be suspect. Swap in a different cable and make sure it is not routed uniquely near any sources of magnetic fields, motors, UV or track lights, etc.
If you're using digital input all that advice was a waste of time to create as there is nothing external to the chipset that could affect one input channel. Try a different digital input on the STR.
configure ur PC (both OS audio and third party sound driver) for surround sounds. control panel- sounds and audio devices - speaker settings - advanced - speker settings. so this done. make sure u select the 6 input channel - the button is on the right edge near the volume knob. near the vol button there are two buttons for selecting input type with up down arrow. from that u can select the input type this will be indicated on the top front indicator. but with the 6 input channel selected all selections are preceeded. if u select stereo mode u will have left/ right audio only. make sure u connect the input right. connect from computer to 6 channel input. main, surround, center and sub-woofer. connect the spekers to main (L/R), rear(surround) (L/R), center and sub woofer to terminal marked sub woofer ouput. this done select like i said before the 6 channel button. that should do it.
Do you listen to audio CDs via a CD player or DVD player? Pure audio CD is only 2-channel, so either TV or the DVD player is doing the mix to 5 channels. But you can choose the sound mode via remote - there should be modes like 5ch/7ch stereo, where the same signal is going to all speakers (I you this mode for listening to radio sometimes).
Back to basic to advance:
Be sure you have all speakers connected correctly behind the receiver.If you center channel don't have any sound,it could be 7 different issues,but you could try to just hook up your center channel to either the right or the left speaker output to be sure the center channel speaker does work.
Check your the speaker wiring tip(if there is any),i will use just the speaker wire go straight to the center speaker output,go to the receiver to change it to pro-logic or dolby digital and of course you should put in a dvd in the dvd player to have a good quality movie to play the dialogue through the center channel for you test.
If you have tried the above step and still have no sound,you might consider hiring a troubleshooting master to take care of your issue.
Let me know what you need!
The dialogue comes from the center speaker. If you have a center speaker make sure that that it is connected correctly. If it is them check the speaker configuration setup menu. Make sure that the center channel is set to small. If it is set to none you will get no dialogue. If you don't have one make sure that it is set to none. Make sure that you have the speaker levels set correctly according to the manual. Lastly check the tweeter in your center channel is not blown.
