    I just bought a Samsung htf5500w and love it. I'm having problems getting the sound to sound right though. Was hoping someone could help me or link me too some settings.The "Music" drowns out the voices and its hard to hear the movie.It's annoying lol. I can't hear any voices in the rear wireless speakers either....Please helpThanks

    Anything. It's like this if it's on. Mostly DVD and streaming avi files though.

    So it is working perfectly if you hear no "voices" in the surrounds...cause that is what the center is for. (cause I'm going to guess none of your content is concert BD like Jeff Beck: Live at Ronnie Scott's...where there would be "voices" in the surrounds...cause it exists in the first place)

    As for "music" drowning out the rest, I'm confused...cause you apparently aren't listening to concert BD. Or do you mean the movie soundtrack?


    ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    No answers till you give something to go on.

    What AVI was this?
    Top Gun?
    Curious Case of Benjamin Button?
    Transformers?
    The Artist?
    Skins?
    Boss?
    Horrible Bosses?

    How many many millions of AVI could you have?

    Like today we were watching Jurassic park and the dinosaurs and the background noise over came the voices and all you could hear was a whisper. It was a avi on my computer and I streamed it to my surround sound.

    I have just purchased and set up the same system, my first DVD is a legal copy of Fast and Furious. The speakers have all been checked and are working, the music and sound effects are fine. It just won't play the dialog when someone is speaking any suggestions?

    Thankyou

    Can you hear the background noises like birds chirping and the wind blowing or tarffic ? If so you may have a bad HDMI board. My Intergra did the same thing, could not hear any dialog but could hear the background noises. If you have Dirtectv try turning off dobly digital and see if you can hear the dialog.

    Read the manual, pg21 tells how to use the settings

    Lets you adjust the following
    speaker settings and turn the test
    tone on and off so you can test the
    speakers.
     Level: Lets you adjust the relative
    loudness of each speaker from 6db
    to -6db. For example, if you like
    deep bass, you can increase the
    loudness of the subwoofer by 6db.
     Distance: Lets you adjust the
    relative distance of each speaker
    from the listening position up to 30
    feet. The farther the distance, the
    louder the speaker will be.
     Test Tone: Lets you run the Test
    Tone function so you can test your
    adjustments. Setting Test Tone to
    On turns the Test Tone on. Setting it
    to Off turns it off
