  • DVD Sound but no voices

    When playing DVD's on WMP11 I get all the back gound sounds but no voices. I am using the on board sound card with an FM modulator.
    In the research I have done I have found that my DVD might be playing in surround sound. Since my stock stereo does not support this I am loosing the voice track that normally comes through the center speaker.
    My question is, how do I change this? I don't see any options in WMP or sound options to play the audio in stereo. Any help would be appreciated.

    Your audio is set to 5.1 surround sound. Set your Windows speaker setup to stereo (2.0) or get AC3Filter to fix it for you.

      Thanks for the input. I checked my speaker set up in the control panel. I had it set to "desktop stereo speakers". I tried all different options with no success.

      Downloaded the AC3 Filter and I now have voices in my head! (unit)
      Thanks

        What sound card do you have? i know the SoundBlaster Live USB, makes you set it to 5.1 to get the subwoofer to work, but if you dont connect the center speaker, it automatically routes center to the left and right front speakers.

          I am using the onboard sound from the Beginner Car Pc from MP3Car. Nothing fancy.
          I've got too much money in this project already to afford good sound. Someday when my monitor woes are a thing of the past I'll upgrade the sound.

              Hey Brucedog. I bet you're missing our weather here. It was almost 80 deg. today.

              I tried to upload some pictures to the MP3Car image hosting but they were too big. How do I shrink theme down so I can post them?

              I'm not to good with that stuff.

                You can use a basic photo editor to reduce them. I use Irfanview. It is available for free from www.irfanview.com

                hope this helps

                      JLemieux you should paint your screen surround black, kinda sticks out like a sore thumb. Is it removable? First thought to me was "steal me". Interesting solution with the pivot mounts though.

                        JLemieux what make / model is your screen/ ??

                        Looks nice n clear.

                        I haven't liked my Lilli 629 from day one:

                          Crooper - The screen frame is not done yet, it will be powder coated black when it is finished. It is easily removable by design. Two wing nuts and a single connector and it's out. Then I can lock it up or take it with me.

                          Bruedog - I figured that picture of the monitor in direct sunlight was going to spark some questions. It is a 10.4 Durapixel LCD made by LiteMax with an infrared touchscreen by IR Touch. As far as a sunlight readable screen, I don't think they get any better than this. There are some problems I am having with it that are getting ironed out, so I haven't posted much about it yet.
