Multi Channel Sound and DVD Playback Questions
Posted on 2004-04-07
I have advance 97 Audio that came on my GA-7VAXP Motherboard. I have always just used the Line Out into my hifi for speakers, but today I plugged in my Logic 3 Speaker System that I used to have connected into a Playstation 2.
So, now there are the two speakers from the hifi, 2 speakers from the Logic 3 Soundstation and a Subwoofer in the soundstation.
I have tried to get more than 2 channel stereo sound, but I cant. I tried setting it to 4 channel, with the Logic 3 in the Line out and the Hifi in the Rear Speaker Out. They work fine on the sound check, except if the left speaker is clicked, the right one goes as well on both and vise versa for each pair. (Not all 4 at the same time.)
Anyway, the 4 speakers work in the sound check, but in games and in DVDs I only get the two Logic 3s going, the 2 front speakers, no matter what options I choose to mess around with.
I also had the things working in 6 channel, with the 2 Logic 3s as front speakers, Hifi as rear and Subwoofer as... Subwoofer. I had to disconnect the Logic 3 Speakers from the Woofer and connect them directly into the PC. Sound test works again, but no joy in games and DVDs.
Any help appreciated... I think the reason may be that I dont have a proper 6 channel sound set, but still, it should at least play through all speakers, not just front 3?
And, finally. Whenever I play a DVD, on the Television or through my PC, I have incredibly good sounds, etc but speach is very hard to hear? I have to turn it right up when there is talking and right down during other areas? I have come to believe this is the same for everyone who uses there PC or PS2? Why? And how do I solve it?
