I have both a Phillips and I just got a Memorex BluRay player. I have the BluRay now plugged into a Samsung DLP TV through HDMI and have a digital coaxial cable hooked into a yahama 5.1 reciever. I have had the same problem when I have had the BluRay and the Upconverter Phillips DVD player hooked in the same way.
I don't have the surround sound hooked in because I haven't had the time to run wires so currently I have two large Audiofile speakers plugged into the surround sound.
My problem is that the background music is nice and loud but the talking is very weak. So weak I just listen to the sound through the TV. Also, I have noticed that I have an echo between the TV and the speakers.
I don't know if one of these are my problem.
A) I don't have an expensive Coaxial or HDMI cable.
B) I only have two speaker plugged into a 5 speaker system.
C) Should I go optical sound? Will that make a difference?
D) I am waaaaaaaaaaaaay off on all my thinking!
THanks in advance.
