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

The sound on all the movies on our tv is soft voice and loud music. How can I set the volume to be the same for both?


Some TV's have sound settings to empathies voice. If the TV has a centre speaker you can increase the sound output on that. That will make voices louder.
However many people do complain about loud music drowning out voices on TV. The problem is that movies were meant to be seen in cinemas and TV sound systems don't match up to that. If you can't find a solution consider a surround sound system as this will correct the sound problems on movies.

Music too loud voices soft on laptop


1/2 the movies made are like that,
if one movie is ok, and other not , it's the sound mixing
man that made movie. (many are bad)
like when they play loud music over dialog in a drama.
silly but they do,that, . (unlike better movies)
the only cure (hope) is using dolby 5.1 on up
and hope the sound channels can allow you to hear what you want. some content allow the front speakers to be increase for better voice.

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.

No voices when watching dvds


voices come out through the "center" speaker. Check that connection (both on the speaker and DVD player)
