So I fired up Amazon prime on my PS3 fat last night and the picture is amazing, and soundtrack is fine, but you can't hear anyone talking in any movies or shows!! LOL. Just super quietly and other elements of soundtrack are normal volume. Booted Amazon Prime up on my Wii U (connected through same inputs, receiver, and TV) and it sounds fine, with voices as they should be... So obviously my "Voice" channel isn't making it to the speakers...seems like i'm not the first one to have the issue: http://www.kboards.com/index.php?topic=204159.0 http://www.avsforum.com/forum/184-video-download-services-hardware/1313137-sound-but-no-voice-nf-movie.html Anyone still using their PS3 for prime? My receiver is a simple Samsung all-in-one. It has five channels but I only have the front three (.1) hooked up because running the cables for the rear is a pain. The voice SHOULD go to the center channel really as it is configured. I'm thinking my best bet would be to go into my PS3 audio settings and attempt to set it to Stereo? Anyone encountered and fixed this?
So....it seems like consoles are a poor investment to use as multi-media boxes. It looks like as soon as they are no longer supported, streaming companies are pulling the plug very fast on their support for them. Which is crazy because cheap 10 year old blu ray players will still work just fine. So far I have stumbled across: Wii: Netflix Wii U: Hulu PS Vita: Hulu What others have you encountered? Does anyone else find this to be a bit of a joke/frustrating? It takes away some pretty major functionality from these machines. Just more of the joys of modern gaming/media i guess. I should probably feel lucky the OEM's don't add firmware updates bricking their ability to play DVD's/Blu Rays once they are no longer supported. Thoughts?
