I have a Vizio SB3651-E6 sound bar and for some reason, my surround sound speakers don't seem to work when I use EQ Direct. I'm using the optical cable, but I also tried using the HDMI ARC set up. It does work on Movie or Musiz setting with either set up.
Could this be because EQ Direct will only produce 2.1 from a 2.0 source, but EQ Movie/Music will change sound to 5.1 (or close to it) from a 2.0 source.
Could surround speakers in EQ Direct only produce 5.1 from a 5.1 source?
movie and music add additional frequencies not intended by the director but yea cable tv your not going to get anything out of the satelites in direct mode which sounds better even with sat's disabled i know with kodi u have to have audio set to 2.0 yea dont as me to explain that and audio pass through with evrything enabled to get 5.1 and direct sounds 1000 times better than music and movie in kodi oh and make sure surround is enabled
I have had it work using HDMI ARC and Direct EQ. It is my preferred setting for movies. For some reason tonight it is not working! I’m going nuts trying to figure it out. Just tried 2 different BluRays discs, one contains “7.1” and the other “6.1”. Neither have output to the surrounds. I let it ruin my night. Trying to watch Solo.
