I have been through a lot.
Currently using a Sharp HDTV feeding a McIntosh MX 130 that splits sound in Bose surround fashion to Infinity Kappa 9's and Golden Ear center channel (pair). The Center channel is fed by an AMP ONE (100W) the Infinitys are fed by a MC2600 600w/channel and acoustic research cobalt wires. Dolby on or not, the same.
I have changed TV's (Panasonic before)
I have similar problem with a Samsung UHD series 8 feeding a Parasound amp with optic cable
I cannot for the life of me fix the female voices. Lucy Liu is the worst, but other voices are muffled.
I put a sound equalizer in the center channel to some benefit.
I do not hear this distortion in commercials, DVD, and most streaming. It is most aggravating when the voices of the commercial are crystal clear, but the show's audio is not.

It could be the dvd . It happens a lot if the film is a pirated copy.

So the DVD is wrong because it tends to be clearer?
Read again, its the broadcast audio, mostly network sourced, that is distorted. Ads, local news seem to be much clearer.

Is it any particular channel? It may be the local affiliate's equipment that is FUBAR, meaning there's really nothing you can do about it.
