I am pretty sure I remember having seen this issue discussed here before, but I wasn't able to find it through forum search...

I am getting a sort of static through the tweeters of my main speakers while in surround mode that appears to be "bleeding" or coming from the information that is being sent to the center channel (i.e. the variation of the static coincides with the variations of sound coming from the center).

The source is a Sony DirecTV via S-video and shielded RCA - going into an Onkyo 646 - out through bananas and 12 gauge wire - to Polk RT 1000's and a CS 400.

Any ideas on cause / remedies?

Thanks,
RightD

I have the exact same problem with my Toshiba SD6109C!!! I didn't really know how to explain it, but you did perfectly. Except for me, the bleeing occurs in both Stereo and Surround...i get the the center channel hiss/sound

The problem could be patch cords. Try using
a different set or remove them 1 at a time
until the problem goes away. It will take
the process of elimination to get to the
bottom of it. It could also be the equipment
but eliminate the easy things first.

SS - Checked the interconnects and replaced more than a few (they needed to be replaced anyway) but was unsuccessful in solving the problem.

Not surprisingly the DVD through 5:1's is fine, but anything that is connected through composites has the same problem.

Any other ideas? (other than a hardware/receiver problem?)

Thanks,
RightD
