    Hi all,
    I currently receive a Pro Logic signal from my Comcast digital cable box for channels above 100. My question is about your experiences with Pro Logic...when I have it in that mode (in either Movie or Music), it sounds like my rear speakers still try and emit the "voices" that the front speakers are supposed to be emitting. I can hear a sort of "crackle" in my surround speakers when dialogue is taking place...I have an Onkyo receiver. Is this normal for Pro Logic? Dolby Digital sounds fine so don't think it is something with my connections? I hear the background noise that I would expect in Pro Logic, but also hear these "crackles" of voice when there is dialogue. Any advice, suggestions?

    How do you have your digital cable box connected to your receiver ? RCA cables (white/red) or digital coax?

    Are the "crackles" really noticable, or do you have to put ear very close to the surround speakers to hear them? Some of these low level audio artifacts are normal and not usually audible at normal listening locations.

    I have my connection from the digital cable box through an optical cable. Yes, I have to put my ear up to the speaker to hear it. I don't hear it from the listening location. I just wondered if the slight "crackling" was normal using Pro Logic.

    Based on the information that you have provided, it appears what you are hearing, up close, is normal for Pro-Logic.

    When I picked up my first 6.1 Dolby Digital receiver, I noticed how quite my rear channels were, as compared to my Pro-Logic receiver.

    I had to get up close to my rear speakers to notice to crossover noise as well on my old receiver.
