I had this problem with my previous TV (Syntax by Olevia, an off brand). It only happened to me on certain channels, and for certain shows. What is happening is the TV station is broadcasting the audio in Dolby 5.1 format. For some stupid reason, the TV is playing the background speakers (effects) instead of the speaking parts. You get a little bleed-over of the voices into the back speakers, so voices are there but really quiet. Unfortunately my TV didn't have any surround sound options to fix this.

See if your TV has a surround sound option. Otherwise, you will need to connect the TV sound output to a surround sound system that can properly decode the audio channels.

My Denon AVRX3100 works fine with my Dish Network TV. The Panasonic DVD player (attached to either DVD or Blueray inputs) only has partial sound. The movie background music plays but not the voices.

Your denon amp amp does not match and work well
in some players for instance "Samsung" no pictures
and sound via HDMI input. Only replacing players
to another brand such as LG can fix the problem.

Should I be hearing only music and background noise from the surround speakers. I do not hear voices, just music, background noise, applause, etc. thanks,,!

Yes, for most movies the surround speakers are for music and background. Unless the person speaking is supposed to be behind you, the voice will not come from there.

The sound on all the movies on our tv is soft voice and loud music. How can I set the volume to be the same for both?

Some TV's have sound settings to empathies voice. If the TV has a centre speaker you can increase the sound output on that. That will make voices louder.
However many people do complain about loud music drowning out voices on TV. The problem is that movies were meant to be seen in cinemas and TV sound systems don't match up to that. If you can't find a solution consider a surround sound system as this will correct the sound problems on movies.

My Vizio flatscreen 60" HD tv background music sound overpowers talking. How can I lower background music? When no background music, the sound (talking) is perfect.

This is typical of sound systems that come with TVs, especially flat screens. You need to look into purchasing an external sound system, such as a sound bar or a surround sound system. That way you can have better control of background/voice ratios.

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.

What is brand of TV? (Toshiba?)

Music too loud voices soft on laptop

1/2 the movies made are like that,
if one movie is ok, and other not , it's the sound mixing
man that made movie. (many are bad)
like when they play loud music over dialog in a drama.
silly but they do,that, . (unlike better movies)
the only cure (hope) is using dolby 5.1 on up
and hope the sound channels can allow you to hear what you want. some content allow the front speakers to be increase for better voice.

VSB200 sound bar. When background music comes on, the music overtakes the speaking voices, requiring me to turn the sound down (to lessen the music) so I can hear the speakers. In a movies, with lots of...

It sounds like you left the tv set's internal speakers on after hooking up the sound bar.You should turn off your internal speakers via the Menu on the on screen display and go to audio. There you should find something about the speakers (on/off). Turn off your internal speakers and enjoy the sound bars great sound.

I just bought the Vizio E421VA and I am contemplating take it back. The volume levels are horribly inconsistent. On some channels I can have the volume level at 2 and its loud, on others you put it to 20...

we have had the same problem and I suggested to Hubby that we had better return it soon. He did some research and we are trying this: use the TV remote and press the center button "Select", Choose Audio, Make sure True Volume is set to On. I've only been watching for an hour but it very well may have solved the problem. Hope it works.

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.

Jensen VM9510 No voices in movies

It sounds as though the unit is set up for "6-channel" surround mode, but you don't have a center speaker. That means the audio sent to that speaker isn't being heard. You'll need to get to the audio setup menu, and either turn off the 6-channel mode, or turn off the center channel option. There are two different Jensen models with the VM9510 model number, but you can download an owner's manual for either one here: http://www.audiovox.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/GenProductListCmd?type=model&catalogId=10001&storeId=10001&categoryId=VM9510&langId=-1&page=&urlString=&productId=&brand=
