Alright, I am not exactly sure what would be the cause of this issue so I figured I would post here for ideas or suggestions. I have an Onkyo TX-SR508 Amp, and originally was using some standard Energy Take Classic 5.1 Speakers. I saw some some Polk Audio speakers for cheap, so I picked up a pair, Monitor 60 CS2. I also purchased an equivalent Center Channel.
Now here comes the problem. The sound isn't being reproduced properly. For example, if I am flipping through the channels, the first few seconds I might only hear sound out of the front left and right speaker and then it will readjust and send the vocal to the center channel and use the front left and right speakers properly. There are times during commercial breaks, where the audio does the same thing switching between commercials, where the center channel is quiet at first, then a few seconds and the vocal is moved from the left and right speakers to the center channel like it is suppose to.
Another example would be if I am watching lets say, Football, where the audio comes from both the announcers and also from the field and such, that sometimes when it switches to the referees talking it takes a few seconds for the vocal audio to be sent to the center channel.
So here is what I am thinking it may be.... I know the receiver only handles 20W per channel, and the speakers are rated higher, i just assumed that meant they would not be able to be as loud as they could.... but maybe its causing it to delay sending the signal.
Or that possibly the auto detect setup was done incorrectly. I was pretty sure I ran it a second time just to make sure, but maybe not.
The last thing I was thinking was maybe there is a setting on the receiver to detect audio volumes and to adjust the speakers accordingly, and that it is not initializing properly.
A side note, I can't remember a time during a movie where it has sounded odd, but it has during TV shows for sure.
