Question about Magnavox NB500MG9 BluRay Player

Open Question

The volume for dialogue is lower than the the volume for background audio effects. Explosions and BGM are really loud, but I can barely make out what characters are saying. The problem must be in the Blu-ray player's audio settings, as it occurs on either of my TVs. I've experienced the same problems with past DVD players on the same and different TVs. One Panasonic DVD player I have has a ''Cinema Voice'' audio setting, and when I turn that on it solves the problem. So how do I access the audio settings that turn up the dialogue track on this Magnavox BD player? FYI - the machine is actually a Magnavox NB500MG1F, but that was not listed as a valid selection.

If this is a Blu Ray Disk then your unit needs a firmware upgrade to be able to play the new Blu ray format. Contact Samsung for the upgrade file, burn to a DVD and run. The update will allow your unit play the new BR Format.

SOURCE: Blu-Ray doesn't play all dialogue.

It might be set on parental controls.... So it may be blocking some dialogue.... To change parental controls you just go to settings and some where in there you will find parental settings... there may be a password set to block unauthorized changes.... Ask someone who knows what the password is....

From what I can tell this player does not support BD live. It is not mentioned on the product page on Magnavox's website.

How do I manage overpowering tv background noise


I think a surrond sound system helps. I have the same problem, i can't hear dialogue either. I can't afford surround sound system so i have to keep turning volume up & down accordingly.

Whenever I am watching a movie or playing a game and there is a sudden increase in volume (such as an explosion) the volume lowers suddenly to "normalize" it. After a few seconds it returns back to normal...


Hi Metallica309

A lot of flat screens have pretty over-reactive 'normalising' controls. I have a Wharfedale flat-screen which 'compresses' any extra sound to the point where it's impossible to understand speech.
Start by hitting 'Menu' on the tv - then select 'Sound' - then lookout for AVL (Auto Volume Level) or 'Normalise'. DESELECT the AVL.

O.K. - so it's going to sound louder for explosions and quieter for whispers - but that's what real life is really like !

You may have similar settings hidden away on your other devices - do the same with them. The cumulative effect of a string of devices (all with AVL on) leads to auto audio mayhem.

Try it - and good luck.

While playing call of duty 4, the explosions make the TV's speaker go to a loud crackling noise, Only this game does it.


That's because explosions are pretty much only low frequencies, otherwise known as bass. Your tv crackles because the low frequency emitters of your tv are either of low quality or malfunctioning. If you lower the volume of your tv it should fix the problem.

Emerson dvd player - background sound lauder than dialogue


Greetings surfjax,

If you will allow me to make an assumption, you do not have a 5.1 surround system connected to your DVD player. This is a common experience with users of a standard TV or stereo receiver if a movie is being presented in 5.1.

In a surround sound system the center channel speaker provides almost all the vocal tracks while the side channels will provide music and some background noises. You'll still be able to hear the voices in your side speakers, but it will be muted and over powered by music or sound effects.

Some DVD players allow you to "Downmix" the surround signal to stereo. You might want to look around your sound setup on the DVD player or check your owners manual.

Hope this helps.

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.

Background sound too loud


Check the audio settings. You might need to reduce the surround sound effect or increase the Center (dialogue)
