The dialogue comes from the center speaker. If you have a center speaker make sure that that it is connected correctly. If it is them check the speaker configuration setup menu. Make sure that the center channel is set to small. If it is set to none you will get no dialogue. If you don't have one make sure that it is set to none. Make sure that you have the speaker levels set correctly according to the manual. Lastly check the tweeter in your center channel is not blown.

Only background sound, no dialogue when playing blu ray

do you have a center channel speaker hooked up? Most dialogue in movies should come from the center channel.

Onkyo how to setup

Dialogue comes from the center speaker usually. If you are only using two speakers, then you must set the receiver for stereo output only.

Check your center channel. Most dialogue is routed to the center channel in surround.

When I use the headphones listening to TV, I get the background sound (eg music) clearly but the dialogue is very low and drowned out by the background music or ambient sounds

It's because the TV's audio is stereo and the dialogue is mono split between two channels. When dialogue hits your headphones the majority of the mono signal gets cancelled. Try a different set of headphones or watch true stereo channels... IE movie channels

We can't hear spoken audio on our recent dvds (movies), only the music. Some of the the older movies are fine.

Your center channel speaker is not working. In modern 5.1 movies dialogue only comes from the center channel. Older movies were stereo/mono so the dialogue would come from both the front speakers.
See if the speaker wires are intact and not loose. After that to confirm if the speaker is OK or defective exchange the center speaker with one of the working ones.If the center speaker does not produce sound, you will have to replace it. But if it works, that would mean that your center channel amplifier is not working & for that you will need professional help.
CHECK CABLES FIRST FOR LOOSE CONTACTS.

Can't hear dialogue in games

Hey there, When it comes to 5.1 speaker systems (from my knowledge anyway) the central front speaker in this case the one looking like WALL-E's head is the speaker that outputs the dialogue in games/movies. So, with this said, have a quick look and see that there are no wire-frays, all is connected "well and proper" and then test it out on a movie/cut-scene of a game you know well and listen in close to it to see if it's working.
Hope this helped,
Jared

Music track is heard, but dialogue is not

It sounds like your CENTER channel is not connected properly.

Check the connection to the speaker itself, and at the connection to the back of the Sony.

Hyundai lcd tv

Mine does this too. Sorry if i tell you the wrong button, because i can't test it right now because I'm having the problem where my remote doesn't work. But i would either push the MTS button or the P. Mode don't remember which it was, but it would change the audio from stereo to mono and i think you want mono to fix it.
