Hooking up HTIB Help

803 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  CZ Eddie
I didn't know where else to put this, so I am putting this question here.

I bought a Phillips HTS 3565D a couple days ago. I hooked it up to my Hitachi 57" HDTV just fine. When I play a DVD using the included Phillips DVD player it is awesome, great loud sound. The problem is when I just watch regular TV or try playing Guitar Hero: World Tour, the sound is really low. I have to crank up the receiver to almost full blast just to get a moderate sound.

For example, last night watching a movie on the system, I couldn't turn it up past 15 (out of 40) without it being too loud for me. However, while playing GH:WT (or just watching TV) I have to crank it to at least 30 (afraid to go higher than that becaues I don't want to burn it out) to really even hear it (and it's still no where near as loud as watching a movie on 15).

Everything is currently hooked up using the red,yellow,white hookups.

Are there any simple solutions to this problem?

This site wouldn't let me post a link to the system, but all you got to do is go to Amazon and type Phillips HTS3565D.

There is a HTiB forum and they will be more help than us, but I remember from my sister's Aiwa HTiB she got a while ago, she had adjustable input levels for each input, for example -6, -4, ect.. up to +6db. It might be possible your Phillips receiver has something similar. Get out the manual and do some investigating.
