Recently the tv is making the background music of a tv show louder than the words so that we cannot hear. turning it up only makes it worse as the background music gets more louder.
any suggestions? thanks.
I have a JVC 32" TV (CRT type). On some shows like "Bones", & "Mystery", the background sound is so loud that it drowns out the dialog. Other shows are just fine. My TV doesn't have a surround sound setting.
Thank you, everyone! I thought maybe I was losing my mind. I can hardly watch a lot of the TV shows anymore due to the inappropriate use of music -- either it's too loud or there's just too darned much of it. Come on, TV producers! You are supposed to get better with time, not worse! Thank goodness I'm not alone.
Use your TV remote, go to "menu", then "Sound" or "Audio", then "other" - this should let you scroll down to "Surround Sound" - turn it "off". If you have surround sound - play with the remote speakers to control what you want to hear - this worls on Sony & Panasonic & many others.
I have noticed the same annoyance. It is OK when the narrator is a trained professional with a strong announcing voice . However when they interview a soft spoken person who has not been trained to have a loud booming voice ,their words are often covered over by dramatic swells in music. The only fix it can think of is to email or write to TV producers. I have sent two emails about the History network but to date they have been ignored. Recently it was on Greatest tank battles where elderly war survivors with interesting things to say were also drowned out by music. Maybe is more people complained or if a blog or if enough internet feedback developed, the people who lay in the music might listen.
I have to wonder how much of it is the channels and how much is our tv's.
I have no issue with History, and like channels, those sound just fine but, ID/OWN for me is the worst. I have adjusted my sound bar, tv, and cable box but nothing helps. Background noise goes up and down constantly like volume leveling but mines not on.
I'm at a loss on what else to do but not watch those channels.

what you need to do is go into the equliser and adjust the settings till you are happy with it this is the only way to do it i would also maybe advise a surround sound system for around 70 dollars as you said your picture is great you may as well get surround sound to go with your home cinema experience the problem is it depends on ur hearing you may be able to adjust the equliser this would solve anyones problem but with some people their hearing is a bit more selective the tiny little speakers used in these systems make annoying background noisethe only thing i could advise is a surround sound sytem if you still notice it when you adjust the equliser but trust me it is not ur tv it is how good ur hearing is i hate a tv with tiny speakers
Go into the customer menu for audio---look for settings like Hall etc--one of them is set wrong--experiment a little and you will find which one is wrong---background sound is controlled by this setting.
in the menu there should be some type of set up for this, it will most times show you on your screen a room with all the speakers in it and ask you to hit test then it will shoot a white noise type of sound around to each speaker and ask if you heard it, there are then adjustments you can make for the front, rear, and side sperkers independent of one another.
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.
