    I use ASUS M2N-MX motherboard, with HD audio and WindowsXP OS.



    I use normal Sterio speakers.

    Sound volume is High with MP3, AVI, Video discs etc.



    But sound volume is too low for watcing DVDs (original 5.1 format discs) and I don't know how to bring it up.



    I tried upgading multiple realeases of sound drives from ASUS but in vain.



    I could rise the volume(while watching DVDs) by tweaking Equalizer or Sound driver(SoundMax). Problem in have to reset to default after watching it.



    I heard the blame is the HD audio which cannot amplify as normal Stereo oupput.

    Pls some one help me to get normal amplified volume from the PC without changing any settings.

Subwoofer


I'm not familiar with your unit. However, this is normal, since the "sub" is encoded separately in movies. I have a separate sub for my front speakers. Or if you know what you're doing you can redirect the front signal to your sub by using a switcher when you're listening to cds, then switch back to surround when watching movies. But again, you have to be experienced in the principle of A/V configuration.

Sound quality is so poor. cant listen music. volume is too low even with full sound


Normally the sound on the Vostro is lower than the Inspiron series as this is an executive office laptop.
All what can be done is you can download WINAMP and use to increase the equaliser /volume still further.
Also an active power speaker can be connected to the earphone socket to improve the volume to your desired level.

I have hk3385 receiver and Ipod Touch 4G. I have the cable to connect them. Where do I hook the cable on the receiver (or do I?) and which buttons will play the Ipod music. No video, just music


The manual suggests that you use "A / V 3" (audio / video input 3) for your iPad / iPod audio input. These are the RED and WHITE jacks on the front lower right hand side of the receiver. The YELLOW jack is for composite VIDEO, and need not be connected for "audio only" programs.

Turn the volume on the iPod / iPad to MINIMUM (assuming the receiver volume is at a "normal" setting for the radio, CD, etc.). Connect the cable between the iPod / iPad and the A / V 3 RED and WHITE audio jacks. Select A / V Input 3 on the receiver. Find a song you want to listen to and select PLAY in the iPod / iPad. Slowly adjust the volume on the iPod / iPad up to a comfortable level. If there is distorted sound, adjust he receiver and iPod / iPad volumes up and down as needed. Generally, neither should be set very low or very high.

You can download the owners manual here.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

Make sure that the volume is not muted or too low on the TV...the TV volume output to your receiver will be performing the function of a pre-amp to your receiver. Then select the appropriate input on the receiver that you have the TV audio connected to.

Powered sub only has sound while watching a dvd or listening to music on Onkyo TX-SR607


So perhaps it's a source sound issue. THAT would best be investigated at the Dish receiver. Consider it's audio settings and how it interfaces with the Onkyo.

How do we listen to aCD in 5 channel suround sound without having the TV on we can only get straight sound. We have a Yamaha RX-V365 av receiver.


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).

No volume or sound for my Laptop


Please check to see if your sound card is installed/enabled, then check to see if the sound files are set to open with that device. Your computer should already have a media player installed (if you're using Windows). Set your music files to open with the media player.

Sony STR-DE475 - Sound levels dropping


When did this start? Did it ever work right?

How's the sound from your TV speakers by itself and from DVD? The same? Problem's in the TV.

If it's just the receiver doing it from both sources that's where we start.

Check the settings for dynamic range (ratio of loud sounds to soft sounds) in both your receiver and your cable TV tuner. Many devices have a setting sometimes called "MidNight Mode" to be used in the event you're listening while someone else might be sleeping or otherwise would be disturbed by the TV volume.

The assumption is that you will turn the TV down but that normally means you would lose the quiet programming in the background nosie of your home. Through the magic of dynamic compression the quiter sounds are raised to audibility while loud things like explosions and fanfares will be limited in volume. Depending on the design and whatever the broadcaster is doing to the sound themselves this could be anywhere from pleasingly effective to aggravatingly inconsistent with odd variations in the levels.

Hope this helps.
