    Hi all

    I'm hoping someone can help me with this problem. I have an LG Home Cinema Surround sound system which works on 5.1 but also uses the XTS sound enhancement system. I like to use XTS-3 as it gives the best sound but it only works on 2 CH - not on 5.1. The problem is that when I change to 2CH the DVD plays with audio description on and I can't find any way of turning it off. I'm sure it never use to do this on 2 CH.

    Please help, it's driving me mad.

    Thanks

    but isnt that what XTS is for, improving stereo sound...
    have you tried changing the audio track in the actual individual dvd's menu.

    Sorry, I probably haven't explained the situation very well. I want to use XTS as the sound is better than 5.1 but when I change to 2 channel I get the film sound PLUS the audio description. Is there anyway of using 2 CH without having audio description.

    Cheers

    Oh and yes I have changed the mode in the dvd set up but it only gives me 2 Ch with audio description.

    I think that's the problem Rotten - most of my dvds seem to have the audio description on the stereo channel. It's a real shame as the XTS on the LG system is better than the sound through 5.1 (in my opinion). so I can assume that if the audio description is layed over the stereo soundtrack then there is no way of turning it off?

    Thanks

    i would assume thats the case..
    what about picking another language though, for a test, like some dvd's have a foreign stereo track..maybe see how that sounds, or hunt out a dvd thats doesnt have the audio descriptive track on it..
