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.

I have problems with the audio of movies for Region 2 DVD's. I do not have any problems with TV Series, just movies. I can hear the background music, etc. but not what the actors are saying.


Check the sound settings of the player. It might be that you have the wrong sound settings for playing back DVD's. If you use a surround system, check the centre channels settings.

I have an Audiosonic 5.1 CH DVD player and followed the instructions to connect to the TV but can not get proper sound. I hear the background noises but not the main dialogue


It sounds like you have a type of surround sound or theater sound system going on, and you may be hooking up the surround sound instead of the main audio output.

Bluray player can't hear voices but background music


Either the player or the set it is hooked to may have in the audio settings a "Hall" or similar setting--background will be louder than people speaking---its a setting.

I have background music but no audio(dialogue) coming from my Samsung Blu-Ray player. What can I do to fix it?


You may be trying to play a Blu Ray movie with only a 2 speaker setup. If you do that, you won`t be able to hear the voices because the Blu Ray player is sending just the left and right audio channels and not sending the center channel because there is no speaker for it. If you only have 2 speakers, then check your manual for the option to change that 5.1 channel audio stream into a 2 channel so the voices will show up in the left and right speakers.

I can only hear the background music and not the dialog what is wrong


Do you have the left AND right channel hooked up to the back of your tv? Sometimes your dialog may come through one channel and the music from the other depending on what kind of telesvision you are using. Try that and then make sure you don't just have your player set to do close captioning and have the vocal dialogue shut off.

I can't hear people talking when i watch a movie?


I had the same problem and found that there was a connection problem with the center speaker. Do a sound check on all speakers and see if the sound is coming out of the center one. If not then just check you have connected it properly.

I assume the above problem is on all DVD's. Generally speaking, dialogue soundtrack is located in the Front Center speaker. From your description of the problem I would double check all the wiring to the front center speaker you have connected to your audio system. If there is no front center speaker, check to see how your audio system is set to handle the front center speaker . . . it should be set to "Phantom" or "none". On the other hand you're relying just on your TV speakers and you're not getting any dialog I would change, under the Settings of the DVD player, the Digital Out settings to PCM.

I have sometimes hoad this problem when I had the audio mode set incorrectly. The dialogue comes through the center channel and that's where it gets lost. I had to cycle through (I believe) the 3D phonic setting to get it right. Check the fine print in the owner's manual.

Hope this helps.
