    Maybe the sound is being output in 5.1, so you may only be getting the front surround outs. Have you tried changing the sound settings on your bluray player.

    From my limited experience most TVs have a shut off point
    when playing DVDs & files. Seems you need an additional amplifier. Sometimes there is a TV setting for Films.

    It's often a sore point when on a legit DVD the audio is too quiet.
    When raising the volume after a certain point it doesn't make any
    difference. Had this problem with last 2 TVs, last one is a 2 year
    old 40" Samsung Smart TV. The DVDs vary so much on the audio
    level. We don't want to run extra surround sound due to lack of
    space, but... it may be your only solution.

    As I do quite a few DVDs, I up the audio level on the quiet files
    via the software before converting.


    Regards catoro.

    when playing a dvd can you select audio or language as there may be a stereo audio track . also turn downsampling on.
