I own a samsung HW-T420 2.1 channel soundbar. Which is soundbar & wired subwoofer. When selected dolby digital in my V6 audio setting I seem to get lossy sound on some movies when recorded. But not all. Recorded programs seem okay. I did query this with Samsung. They said I need to select dolby digital. Not pcm. As dolby digital does 2.1 channel dolby. Apparently dolby pcm is for Channel 5.1 and up 🤔 now I'm scratching my head. My soundbar does have dolby Dts decoding. Virgin media tv tech team weren't much help🙁. They said dolby digital will give lossy sound. And to use pcm. Samsung told me to select dolby digital. Advice please 🙂.
What should I do when I'm watching a recorded movie with faint sound. Where its quiet when actors are speaking? This doesn't appear to happen on all recorded movies 🤔. Example. I noticed the sound was very faint when I watched fatal attraction 1987. Which I had recorded off sky cinema channel. I have my soundbar in smart mode. Its options are smart, surround sound, standard & Game. Also I have sound sync which starts at 0. Upto 300. My bass is set to +4, Treble +4 subwoofer +4, sound sync set to 300Ms. Hope this helps?
Hi again there have been many complaints on here related to low sound on virgins systems, you just have to increase your volume on your device, i notice the sound on Netflix & Amazon video via a fire stick i don't have to do that. Regards Micky
