Cinema/Gaming Console help


Standard Member
I have hooked up my cinema system with both my Xbox 360 and PS3 using Optical cable. It all works fine but I have a couple of questions about the sound.

1. There are options to play it through the front speakers or have it multi channel. When I play it through front speakers only it plays through all 3, but when I change to multi channel, one of the front 3 speakers doesn't play, is this normal? Or can I turn it on somehow? This happens with console/dvd/music.

2. When on the 360 or PS3, the menu sounds on the consoles doesn't always come out of the speakers, it's inconsistent, but this is the only sound problem I have in that sense, again, is this normal or not?

Thanks to any responses

These issues aren't normal, although the menu one might be. It depends on the source material etc. Post makes/model numbers and links to equipment and online manuals if you can and maybe someone can take a look for you.
