    I'm having an issue with the logic 7 cinema 5.1 mode on my avr325z receiver. Were I'll be watching tv with logic 7 when all of a sudden, it sounds like the center channel info is sent to all speakers. Changing the channel doesn't fix it, but if I switch to logic 7 music mode, it sounds normal again and I can switch back to cinema mode and everything sounds fine. It happens randomly, but it appears to be happening more often lately. Just checking to see if anybody else has run into this problem.

    thanks in advance
    Patrick

    My 525 does the same thing. Sometimes it will do it several times a night, and sometimes months between episodes.
    I've learned to live with this little bug and haven't thought about changing to another brand reciever. Besides the other brands don't have logic 7 so you won't have this problem.

    I also have the 325 and it does the same thing. Hmmmmm.
    It only does this when watching TV for me. I have Direct TV. What sources are you running when this occurs?

    Thanks,

    Just a standard cable box, Time Warner Cable, and also just tv and only L7, but then again that is the only source I use L7 with.

    I have one and I've never had this problem. Mine was a refurb. I watch TV in Logic 7 cinema mode all the time.

    I have a H/K 520 for about 1 1/2 years now and have the same thing happen semi-frequently. I don't think cinema mode has anything to do with it. It's a L7 bug that has been posted numerous times happening in the 520 & 320. It takes the 2 channel source (DirecTivo, in my case) and evenly distibutes it to all channels. For me, it happens when watching espn's PTI about once every 10 shows and once every 6 months the rest of the time. With Tivo I pause it for about 2 seconds & it goes back to normal. Rewind to before the spot and it will do again about 98% of the time at the exact same spot.
    Not a big hassle so I live with it.

    In the effort not to be a thread killer...
    anybody know if there is a fix so it doesn't happen?

    according to HK support

    The problem you
    described sounds very unusual and I am not even sure if it is related to
    your specific source or something unusual in the broadcast signal that
    is causing it.

    from this I do not think so
