Xbox 360 Center Channel Not Working

Yet, when I did the THX Audio Test on a Star Wars DVD, the sound was fine. This happens a lot when watching TV where the program is 5.1 but the commercials are stereo so the receiver switches back and forth. Don't really have any experience with this system but it says it supports DTS.

BTW, the BD player on the console do output 5.1 surround sound correctly. It may seem a little redundant at the beginning but you might come out with a solution. That may be your issue too. Because the majority of users (who are probably aged 8-15 years old) won't know any better or care.

That's really besides the point. Along with many surround sound issues, it also missed a very important component that existed on previous model, Xbox 360, called WMC Extender which is very useful for watching live TVs The problem is with the xbox. Dialogue still hard to hear unless it's behind you.

but it only applies to games (and NOT movies...

The only time something comes out of the center channel is during the cutscenes when people are talking.

permalinkembedsaveparentgive gold[–]x_polygon_x 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago(2 children)Just looking at the specs real quick, your best bet would be using optical (input 1 - game) and setting the bitstream output to I'm now wondering if my center channel just got turned way down for some reason(?). For example, is your receiver supports 7.1, Xbox One will always output 7.1 LPCM regardless of source channels. Within the game, if I get right up into a characters face while they're talking, the dialogue is rather soft, but if I simply turn around, their voices are dramatically louder

He told me that the problem was most likely caused by the 360 component cable (which the optical input plugs into).

Otherwise I don't know what else to tell you. play fine.

Even when configuring the Kinect with the surround sound it doesn't play the musical tone to test the speaker level from the center speaker. check my blog I then stresmedcthe same movie through on vudu, namely riddick, through my ps3 and there's sound output through all channels at different times, so even on a 7.1 channel native source Let me know if there's anything I can do! I don't have an Xbox one, but on my Playstation i can select which audio formats (Dolby, DTS, PCM, etc...) I want to output.

Your receiver won't be able to tell a difference and can't apply any processing to create the center channel. I'm not getting any audio out of the Center Channel Speaker. The center speaker does work when the 360 starts up, but when playing a game such as Halo, the gun makes barely any sound because nothing comes out of the center this content You can try re-encoding on XBOne, which is confusingly called bitstream which converts all into DD or DTS 5.1 lossy format.

like in game sounds or effects on the dashboard. So the sound is designed to stick with certain objects. That last one might be a long shot.

like the soundtrack on a movie DVD...

No center channel with games and dashboard. It has to be the Xbox. Forum Cheapest Surround Sound on Xbox 360 Forum Surround Sound Echo Xbox 360 Forum Looking for a good surround sound headset (Xbox 360/PC). The views of the moderation team do not reflect the view of Microsoft or its subsidiaries.

The Yamaha was reporting a DD5.1 signal coming from the XBOX but it seemed like a lot of the sounds were missing, including the centre channel. Is it the receiver? please help! http://swhcr.com/xbox-360/xbox-360-media-center-extender-not-working.html He told me that the problem was most likely caused by the 360 component cable (which the optical input plugs into).

Basically running everything thru the receiver since HDMI does carry both audio and video to see what happens.Click to expand... Still haven't gotten Optical to work in any capacity though. Are you getting center audio using "Direct" and 5.1 U? So weird...

Has the Xbox's audio processing for games just died? True but most A/V receiver don't apply audio processing in a similar fashion with LPCM than Bistream. Message us! HDMI to a projector and using the Optical adapter to send an optical signal to my receiver (Yamaha X-V995).

After trouble shooting, checking settings, wires, trying different inputs, etc., it seems to me that my Xbox 360 is no longer sending out a center channel signal for sounds that are They guy I spoke with was clueless about the issue. The center speaker does work when the 360 starts up, but when playing a game such as Halo, the gun makes barely any sound because nothing comes out of the center The digital input shows a 5/2 signal coming in when I turn off surround processing.

Now, the last piece of info I can say with certainty is it's not my surround sound system. Adding some reference links (not sure if it makes sense sense the rest of the game seems to be 5:1). I know if you look in the instruction manual there should be a way for you to reset everything to default. However, when I put a movie DVD into my 360, the center channel works perfectly in both Dolby 5.1 and DTS modes.

They are more interested in rolling out silly, often worthless, gimmicky, trivial, etc. Now check if your receiver supports pcm, dts-hd , master audio...tracks. NO DIFFERENCE.
