Thank you guys for being patient with the new guys around here like me. First time post, but here goes. My surround sound system reflects my status on this forum......it's my first system, and as you could probably tell, I'm on a budget, as many of us are. Here is a quick idea of what I have: TV - 2 years old: Sony-KD36FS170 36" Receiver - 3 or 4 years old Sony-STR-DE685 DVD Player - about 2 years old: Sony-STR-DE685 My problem is probably rather simple. I'm not exactly satisfied with the sound that I get when I play DVD's. It sounds like the music and sound fx is always louder than the voices. My DVD player is run to my receiver with the yellow, red and white cables...and when I went to replace that with a coaxial cable, it didn't work. So I switched my receiver to "COAX mode" and still nothing. This was without the progressive scan on, since that never seemed to work anyway. The receiver I have says it has DD 5.1 & DTS but always says "Prologic" on the display. I've re-read the manual over and over and can't change it. I would like to set it up with the COAX but nothing seems to work. Sorry about the long post, and thank you guys very much in advance for all the help you give.
