Hi,

How and where is your VP100v2 located relative to your video display, your main speakers and your main seating area? Take a few minutes to read Alan's advise at http://www.axiomaudio.com/tips_center_channel_intelligibility.html

Did you have the problem before you used Audyssey, or did it only happen afterwards?

Always had this problem. I've only had my speakers since Wednesday.

VP100 sits on top of Samsung 56" DLP. I have it wedged up in the rear and it points directly at our seating area about 7.5 feet away.
I've posted this pic on another forum but I'll show it here so you can see exactly what I'm talking about.

Is the DVD player set to Stereo or Multi-Channel?

It seems strange to me. I set the audio in the DVD disks setup menu to Dolby 5.1 but when I open the DVD player setup menu all I have to choode from is English 3/2.1 Esp 3/2.1 and Fra 3/2.1. I'm not sure what I need to do from here.

My 3808 shows Dolby Digital while the movie is playing.

3/2.1 is 5.1, unless I'm mistaken.

My mistake, I mean't English 3/2.1 Esp 1/2.1 and Fra 2/2.1. I think the 3, 2 and 1 are just the menu numbered item.

Wait, this is in the DVD player setup menu? I have no idea what that could mean.

Just a thought like that: did you try configuring your system in 4.1 (tell your receiver there is no central channel)? If you have the same issue, then it is something coming from the source path. If you don't have the problem, the definitely look at phases (+- speaker wires) as it is a frequently overlooked source of problems.
