If you are passing video thru the monitor out to the TV, this will go much easier. First Press the GUI Menu button on the remote. If connected to TV, on screen menu will appear. Go to Manual Setup then (right arrow on the 4 way with the ok in middle) Speaker Settings then Speaker Select then go to Center Channel arrow right again and make sure it's "On" If it is, then go back to the main speaker settings and toggle to Speaker Level. Then select center channel and arrow right turns volume up. If you still have no audio, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot further. Hope this helps

It sounds like a problem with your centre channel or speaker. The sound of Voices and on-screen, actions in the middle of the screen are played through the centre speaker. General sounds such as music in the background, off-screen events, etc. will be played through other speakers on a home theatre system. Check your connectors coming from your DVD player to your sound system. Are you using a single-cabled digital connector or one for every channel? Check your sound settings as well, i.e., Surround, AC3, Music, etc.

You don't indicate if the various speakers all sound normal and equal in volume with the test tones, which is where we should start.

Page 25. I would advise setting all controls to nominal (0 dB) and assessing the relative loudness without adjusting them. Then choose the one(s) in the middle, loudness-wise, and adjust the rest up or down to match it.

I had this problem with my previous TV (Syntax by Olevia, an off brand). It only happened to me on certain channels, and for certain shows. What is happening is the TV station is broadcasting the audio in Dolby 5.1 format. For some stupid reason, the TV is playing the background speakers (effects) instead of the speaking parts. You get a little bleed-over of the voices into the back speakers, so voices are there but really quiet. Unfortunately my TV didn't have any surround sound options to fix this.

See if your TV has a surround sound option. Otherwise, you will need to connect the TV sound output to a surround sound system that can properly decode the audio channels.

Back ground music louder than voices watching movies on cable


Is this a new problem or always like this? <<<<<<<<

What is your speaker complement? The center usually carries the dialog.

Are the receiver and its speaker systems set up per the manual? Make it so.

How is the TV-related (Cable) audio entering your receiver? It SHOULD be from the cable box, digitally if available, NOT the TV. You don't need a Low-Fi middleman handling your audio.
