Hi. I recently reconfigured my home theater setup and now I encounter problems which I never had before. My previous setup was as follows: DVD player to VCR to powered equalizer to Dolby Pro Logic receiver all via composite connections. On my DPL receiver, I had A and B front speakers playing simultaneously. I would play the movie loud with no problems. My new configuration is as follows: DVD player to powered equalizer to DPL receiver all via composite connections and NOT going through the VCR as before. I'll play the movie as loud as before with A/B speakers playing simultaneously and whenever it reaches a loud part in the movie it will automatically cut signal to the speakers, return the signal and then cut it off again; a continuous cycle until the movie has reached a quiet part. If I turn B speakers off, then there is no problem and it won't cut the signal. This is something I have never encountered before. I'm guessing that the DPL receiver is going into some sort of "Protector" mode or something to keep the speakers from overloading or even blowing, although I had no idea it could do such a thing. Any thoughts or suggestions? Many thanks in advance.
