In the DVD players audio menu do you have it outputting Bitstream or PCM? it should be bitstream. Also do you have the centre channel level calibrated so it is the same volume as the mains?I have another issure with my H/K Avr 254, I put in a dvd, when i hit the surround (movie)mode, and select dolby PLIIX the voice becomes muffered, the sound is fine
Stereo mode is just that, 2 channels and will mix all the audio to the left and right speakers only.another issure is when i select stereo mode only the 2 channels are highlighted and not 5 channel or 7 channel, what am i doing wrong. I am not enjoying my surround sounds at the moment. Please help!
this is true in general, although in reference to the 254 specifically, if you go into the "surround modes" menu, you can specify what you want to use for "stereo mode". either 2 channel stereo, 5 channel stereo (if you have it configured without surr back) or 7 channel stereo (if you have it configured with surr. back). so theoretically, on that avr, he could set it to stereo mode and get sound from all of his speakers, although i have no idea why in the world anyone would want to watch a movie that way.Stereo mode is just that, 2 channels and will mix all the audio to the left and right speakers only.
That's right. I think that the OP should have use the same thread (the other one, in this case).absolootbs, Just for your info. knowthyself36 has another two threads going on this subject and it seems that he has not run the EzSet/EQ setup on the receiver causing his problems. We are just waiting to hear back from him as to if the issues have been fixed.
