    hi, as i'm sure many of you do i mix sound from my ntl box through
    my home cinema amp ,(sony str db 780) and listen in normal surround mode.this is fine with video tapes,but with ntl if you
    listen close to the speakers the voices are garbled,mashed,dalekesque and obviously wrong.
    anyone else have this prob and know how to resolve please?.
    the captain

    Can you give us a list of all equipment and what leads are used to connect each of these boxes together.
    It sounds to me like the amp is receiving 2 sets of audio, one slightly delayed from the other.

    Theres 2 possabilities I can see with your connections.

    1. Some TV's share the front AV & scart as a single input. You have a box plugged into both of these. Try unplugging the front AV on the TV.

    2. Try and get a video only scart lead for the NTL box. Some TV's output sound via the scart sockets. Are there no Audio output phono sockets on the NTL box?

    thanks mark
    unplugged the front av lead- no joy.tried a regular scart ,and also
    did phono leads direct from the sat box to the amp,but still
    mangled,tunnelly audio.
    you only notice it if close to the sattelite speakers ,it also occurs
    with the astra 2 broadcasts so its not an ntl issue.yet video and dvd come through clear and correct.
    :confused:
    any other ideas?

    My only other thought is that it may be a fault with the amp. Try plugging NTL into a different input. Also try plugging the analogue output from your DVD player in and see if this gives the same result with the same settings ie if you use DPL2 for NTL try playing back the analogue DVD sound with DPL2.
