    Ok, I've searched this, and didn't find very much about it. Anyways, I have a panasonic surround sound system, and I have noticed that in many games, there is some sound missing. In Zelda, for instance, link's sword sound is missing, and a few other sounds I noticed on my regular TV. I have heard that only the Dolby Pro logic II is supported by the Wii, and I'm wondering if this is true. I'm using composite cables, the ones that came with it, and have 5 speakers. Any help?

    The Wii can only put out stereo sound. There is no digital coax or digital optical output to transmit any kind of surround sound.

    nope the Wii is dobly pro... just like GC... make sure your speakers are setup right.. and make sure in your settings on your wii go to sound... then surround... there is mono,stereo, and surround... its ment for dobly.. but ive tryed it on each of my different surround settings and the sound is fine on all of them... make sure your wii is set to surround..

    surround sound has been out far before eaither coax or optical even was thought of.. they are just new versions of surround sound..

    Not true surround, stereo being emulated into surround by processing a signal into multiple channels. When you set your wii to surround it just seperates the sound more so the receiver can decide to put certain sounds in certain areas. It is however not a true surround.

    "true surround" is that a technical term? :prrr: :D

    The sound comes from - front centre, left and right. It also comes behind -left and right. Plus Bass speaker (sub woofer) Thats 5.1 pro-logic surround. Its simply not an sophisticated means of producing surround sound.

    It is surround sound though. And it is possible to program games to work well in 5.1 (pro-logic).

    I have some cheap one in my room but it makes a really noticable difference with the bass.

    most movies arnt even put in true surround... do you think there are 5 boom mics around a set at all times to get your surround sound? no they have a couple mics and digitally make it into surround after the film process... any surround unless your at an IMAX theater, or if its a verry elite movie... is not real surround its imitated.. thats all surround sound is... stereo split in 3 or more directions... digitally enhanced... work in the film industry for a bit figure it out..lol and then try doing it.. pain in the butt to make people enjoy there "surround sound" takes a few hours in the editting booth... ive done it plenty of times

    but yes nintendo has built in 5.1 dobly pro and it works just fine some games better than most.. but thats all up to the game designers...

    works pretty good in 7.1 dobly too :)
