At AES, the Lake T. guys told me that it takes a little getting used to and you need to just relax and not force it. This seemed to work a little--I eventually got the fronts to extend up about 1/2 way, but never fully to the front.
Interesting. I wonder if any manufacturer includes (or plans to) some type of electronic 'positioning' adjustment so that you could tweak them a bit and move the apparent locations of virtual loudspeakers around? Thought I'd read DH was accomplished mostly with digital signal processing; you'd think such adjustments would be easy.
I'm investigating the surround-sound capabilities of my RPTV further. Philips isn't very clear about the function of the the DTV Digital Audio Out jack (RCA-type plug). Manual says it is for the connection of SPDIF audio compatible external amplifiers or home theater equipment. The RPTV has numerous external speaker connections, including subwoofer, speaker test signals, and a "Dolby Digital Surround" section in the manual says in part: "...With the new 5.1 discrete digital channel surround sound system the listener can now attain a true soundstage realism for audio signal separation, imaging, and pinpoint sound placement..."
I don't use these loudspeaker connections, but hoped to hook up the best headphone system available. By the way, Philip, I did indicate in my initial post that my Philips was an HDTV.Edited add: Heard from technical folks at Philips. The DTV audio out jack on my RPTV is for AC3 audio when I'm in the set's ATSC (HDTV) mode.
