Crowd noise is louder than commentators on TV


I got a new TV recently, and I've had this problem for football games and basically all sporting events besides golf and tennis. No problem for sitcoms, movies, or shows filmed in a studio like Sports Center.

Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, were you able to find a way to regulate the sound so you can actually hear the commentators?

I looked at the Sound options using the Samsung remote, rather than the Cox remote, and changing it to Clear Voice from Standard didn't do a thing.

I notice it on Fox for sure.

Does it have any "surround sound" options on it? Anything that attempts to simulate multiple speakers usually just makes everything sound like shite.

check your audio settings, they will usually have some preset options and you may be on some shitty one

I've noticed it on my Sharp Aquos--messed with all the settings, didn't matter. Put it through my surround system and could tweak it a bit to hear the commentators, but then anything besides the game sounded crappy.

Not sure which, but it was only a certain network last week.

Drives me crazy.

Would external speakers help? Thinking about getting some.

I checked the options, and the TruDialog and TruSurround options are both off already.

This TV has been infuriating. Already had to return the first Samsung 40 inch LED because its image quality was absolute shite. Unbelievable that my 7 year old Sony has significantly better sound than this.

Sounds like an awesome problem to me. I can't stand the commentators.

Even if you hate them, you'll hate them even more when it sounds like they talking into their hands.

Check the sound settings on your cable box too

I have the same problem with some games. I checked my settings and couldn't find a fix.

I think it has to do with mic placement by the sound crews. That's my theory anyway.

Yea that would be pretty horrible. I'd rather them just shut up.

I have found this same problem on a few games this year. Last week's Saints/Skins telecast was like this. I felt like I was in the stadium listening to the crowd noise as opposed to those calling the game.

I fail to see where the problem is.
