Z-5500 DVD sound help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi hi.

Need some advice on how to get my speakers to work with DVD playback. Or perhaps recommend me a program to use with DVD's other than MediaPlayer.

With Effect: Movie, Music, or Stereo; I get only music and some sound effects, no dialog.

With Effect: 6 Ch Direct; I can hear just fine, but it bothers me that I only get dialog from the center speaker, and music from the other four. It sounds odd.

With Effect: Stereo x2; I get same only music ans sound effects, no dialog.

Speakers work fine with iTunes and playing games. But I am having trouble playing DVD's and getting normal sound out of them. THx!


FOund solution, Downloaded a free media player from cnet.com called KMPlayer and it plays my DVD"s just fine. So my issue was with Windows media player. This free player has no issue with my speakers so Im fine. Thx.

The center channel is intended for vocals. If you're only hearing voice out of those, that's the way it's supposed to be.

When you're using that KMPlayer, if the dialog comes out of the left and right channels at the same time, then you aren't watching the movie in true surround sound. The center channel setup was specifically designed to be the dialog speaker
