Sound Issues

So this is a interesting sound issue. 

 

I have a problem with my sound where, while playing a game, when I face the a character who is speaking I can't hear them, I hear the stuff going on behind my character, so in order for me to hear what is going on in front of my character I have to turn the character to the side or completely around.  Has anyone heard of this before?

 

I am connected to the TV via HDMI and it is a solid connection.

This sounds incredibly odd. Are you using any kind of external speakers, or your TV's speakers? If external, how do you have the speakers connected to the receiver or TV?

TV speakers.  

There really is nothing special about my set up.  It's hit or miss on some games it does it and on other it doesn't.  I don't know if there is a setting that I messed up in the xbox or if its simply the audio channel that the developer used for the speach?

That is the strangest issue I think I've heard of recently! Can you verify your audio settings on your Xbox match the settings appropriate for you TV, likely Digital Stereo?

I will look into it as soon as I get a chance.  What should the TV and xbox be set to respectively?
