Thanks so much for your response to my problem. Last night for some unknown reason I couldn't get into the manual for my devise. This morning I got into it and found the other Volume control and discovered it had somehow gotten to 20% instead of 90-100%! I fixed that and am now set to go again! My "Car Butler" is talking to me loud and clear. Thanks again.

Try removing all the speaker and the HDMI connections; then use a headphone to listen to music from the tuner or a CD in stereo mode. Better in direct mode. If you hear your music correctly the receiver could be working correctly. If no music is heard, you may need to have it repaired professionally.
If you can hear music, connect the main FL & FR speakers and verify you can hear music that way, without the headphone connected.
If you can hear music that way, connect the center and rears. Try a mode that uses all channels to verify all sound channels are working.
Then, and only then start adding your HDMI connections.
you will need:
run audio cables from yourmusic source to the reciever that should work but if your music source is away from the reciever then get an rf modulator and put your music source by your reciever and the put thevideo cable from your music source to the rf modulator and tthenrun a coax cable to the tv and then run the audio cables from the music source to the input on the reciever. for example i have my direct tv box sound running through my reciever and speakers, and to have musicfrom the direct tv box going through my speakers i put the audio cables from my direct tv box into the audio input on the reciever and then the video cable into the rf modulator and then from the rf modulator i ran a coax cable to my tv then i had my sound from the direct tv box going through my reciever and the video on the tv.
plz tell me if this works :)\
If you're processing digital audio into the reciver via the TV instead of directly from the source it REALLY originates in (Cable, for example), you are wasting good expensive optical cable and introducing opportunities for digital data problems. I always run the BEST audio and the BEST video directly from their prinmary sources to the BEST electronics that can handle each one. That means they take entitrely different electronic routes from their origins to my eyes and ears.
You need to evaluate what might be happening to the audio on its way (unnecessarily) through the TV to the receiver.
When I watch movies, most of the talking is directed to the center speaker. During surround sound, this gives a more realistic environment, with voices coming from the source (center where your tv is) and ambeint noise coming from the left/right corners.
Without hearing the distortion, it will be difficult to state with any confidence where in the amp the problem exists. That being said, the most common problem is with the preamp section. Many of these use 4558 chips as the pre-amp section. If hte chip is blown, the sound may still be heard, but it will be distorted. This is easily seen on a scope. The chips can be purchsed in bulk for les than $1, so the parts cost for the repair should be low.
what you are hearing is latency(delay) in the electronics, software, and maybe your computer is producing some problems also. Have you tried to monitor yourself direct from a mixer before you feed the signal into the MBox.
