    When watching the Alias Season 2 DVD on my Panasonic SA-XR50, I noticed that the subwoofer wasn't playing. After playing around with the settings, I figured out that the sub would only play if either the Fronts were set to 'small' or the Center was set to 'small'.

    I then tried some other DVDs and I was able to get sound from the sub when everything was set to 'large'.

    I made sure that Sub was set to 'YES' in both option 1 and option 2.

    Has anyone else had any problems with this DVD?

    It's possible that all the bass in the sound mix is contained in the l,c,r,sr,sl channels and not the .1 lfe channel. If this were the case, then when you had your speakers set to small bass below the crossover point would be directed to your subwoofer. However, with your speakers set to large no bass from the l,c,r,sr,sl channels would be sent to the sub. Assuming the Alias sound mixes contain no content in the lfe channel no signal would be sent to your subwoofer.
