Hi All - new to this forum, and have some issues that I'm hoping you folks can help me with.
Purchased a Denon 1613 recently, my first AVR. I don't have a subwoofer or a centre speaker, but a house I purchased recently had 4 speakers installed in the ceiling which I wired into the AVR. R and L's were correctly aligned, so were the black and reds. Nothing touching each other...
I then ran the audissy and correctly selected absence of Centre/sub. I let it run to completion. All connections to my cable box and PS3 are via HDMI.
Three issues I have noted are
1) There is a strange static that comes intermittently when I am viewing a HD channel - there is a brief flicker on screen (like static) then normal again
2) Voice is not there, but background noise/score are there. This is odd, as I am getting all the background noises but nothing is coming through as spoken dialog.
3) my back speakers are setup as surround sound back - but I am not hearing anything come through not even background scores. Its as if they are completely dead - when I run the audissy check though they do sound ok then.
Are these in anyway connected?
