HD-DVD sound through centre speaker is muffled


Active Member
Hi All,

Here's one for you....

I have recently noticed that when playing an HD-DVD the sound coming through the centre speaker is muffled. Doesn't appear to be a problem when using the 360 normally for games etc.

Anyone experienced this? I have just recalibrated my AMP to make sure that the speaker channel levels were all OK, but this doesn't seem to have helped at all - I've also checked the connections round the back - and they're all present and correct and "de-dusted"!

Any ideas?

Seem to have a similar problem myself.

Never had an issue with sound from TV/DVD's in the past, but i've noticed the speech and centre channel tend to be slightly muffled and reduced in volume with HD-DVD's. End up having to increase the volume which then ends up shaking the house to bits at the loud parts :rotfl:

Is this a common problem with the 360 add-on???
