Answers :

Hi there,
First of all, as a test, make sure the Samsung A/V receiver can output stereo audio from the tuner input (L+R), if it does, then it's just question of setting the receiver to the correct "mode", you should consult your owner's manual for that. If there is no audio on L+R speakers, then there's a problem with either the amp or the actual speakers. Other thing to check is the individual volume level on front and surround speakers if the receiver has such features.

When viewing TV with DTV, the sound will occasionally mute right after the clipping in a program. Just like the function that protects the speakers from loud sounds.
