    HTS 3538/98 - Home Theater Speaker Volume control problem

    Hi,
    I have following problems regarding the speaker volume settings in HTS 3538
    i) How can I control speaker volumes while I am listening to CD/DVD music ?
    Must I have a TV ( HDMI or any other ) connection to get setup menu to do this ?
    ii) When I tried to control the speaker volumes (when watching a DVD movie through a HDMI connection) as instructed in
    the user manual by going to
    setup --> Audio setup --> Speakers volume --> Here it says "Menu is disabled" !!!!!

    Please advice why this happens and how to rectify this?
    iii) Where can I get more information on 5.1 speaker volume control and tribble/base settings???
    iv) Once I set specific settings for each speaker for one source ( Say it is a 5.1 Audio CD ) do I need to
    set the values again or is that configuration permennant?
    v) I can hear sound for non 5.1 ( stereo ) radio channels through all 5 speakers and sub woofer.
    How does it happen? What are the prerequisites for tunning the 5.1 speakers and the sub woofer???
    ( For example is it possible to tune speaker volumes even when I play a stereo stream ???

    Why I am NOT getting any answer for nearly a month period from any one who conduct this forum???
    Please explain ???
    Thanks and regards,

    I have 3538/12 and as per my experience it does not let us change speaker volumes while operating. It is nonsense but this is the fact. Philips is a little bit ungenerous compared to LG and Samsung. Regarding the settings, you can change the bass/treble only in case the player is in disc mode and not operating. Once you set, it is permanent. For your other questions, I don't want to mislead, hence hope someone who has knowledge here may answer soon.

    Hi Bubesa,
    Thanks a lot for your reply.
    Actually your reply made all my speaker volume related practicle issue OK.
    My real problem was when playing certain sources ( Ex FM radio ) the default sub woofer setting was
    not convenient in the environment. Certain times it was a real disturbance. So I tried to reduce the BIG BASS level at such instances but unfortunately failed to adjust it properly. Even in the user manual
    the trick you mentioned was not mentioned. Who willl try to adjust the speaker volume level while there is no source playing ?

    Any way now I can properly adjust speaker volumes as I wish.
    Greatly appreciate your help and advice

    Thanks again !
