Echo when playing surround sound

I can only play the "pro-logic" or "3 way" to not get an echo. When I go with "theatre" or any other surround sound, I get an echo I cannot get out. I'm running this through my computer and a projector.

You want to adjust the "DELAY" setting on the receiver. The standard (default) delay setting is 20mS, which may need to be shortened if your speakers are well behind your listening position. In a proper setup, you should not detect a significant echo effect in surround programming (unless it is a purposely "echoey" scene). Also, make sure you don't have any of the "enhanced" DSP modes engaged -- some of these are quite echoey. if it has speaker set up, there should be a setting for distance. You might have it set close, so that by the time you hear the fronts, the rears should go. Try setting it farther each time until it sounds right. good luck

My ipod touch 2nd generation suddenly developed an echo or tunnel while playing. the words are clear but prefer the previous normal sound.

Find if there is reverb. Not sure where you are putting the IPOD into the unit. Turn off the effects for that channel. There is usually a control for each channel that controls the amount of the channel sent to effects in addition to the normal mix gain. It sounds like yours got turned up for the IPOD channel.

Have just installed a samsung home theatre HT C5900 have set up speakers according to manual, but when we play a dvd it sounds as though the talking is echoing a bit. It is not crisp and clear. Thank you

The echo could be caused by something called latency. On some systems you can adjust this. It allows you to increase or decrease the speed the sound comes through the speakers, based on how far from your ears they are placed.

When i connected the 5.1 home theatre to the LCD tv, there is a lag between the sound from tv and stereo system (just like echo).

That is very common because of video processing delay. You have to listen with either TV speakers or surround sound; but not both. Some TVs have an audion delay adjustment for TV speaker sync.

Surround sound

your tv might have aux out on the back, I would use that first.
IF NOT, then you will need to use the cable box.  Insert the red and white plugs at the other end of  this cable into the AUDIO IN TV or cable box connectors on the 
media center. 
Be sure to match red to red and white to white. 
3. Use your TV remote control to turn the TV speakers 
down to minimum volume. 
This prevents the echo effect of audio playing 
through both the TV speakers and your 3•2•1® 
system speakers.

No surround sound through tv

May be you have to set the Pro-logic option soundfield, this will matrix a 5.1 surround sound effect, unless of course you are sending a Dolby Digital 5.1 audio signal from your TV broadcast into the Home theatre system, also have to check the TV audio output to send audio output to a Home theatre system in other than 2 channel stereo.

System echos when dvd is in. When I mute the Bose sytem I can hear the TV sound without the echo.

The echo you hear is the audio delay between your TV speakers and Bose speakers. Muting (or lowering the volume) on the TV will eliminate the echo. Some TVs have a setting to turn of TV speakers entirely, allowing you to listen to your TVs audio strictly through your Bose system.
