A solid system for the money but is there an issue with live sports?

Samsung HT Z310
Advantages: Easy to set up
Disadvantages: Possible sound issues with live sport
I am not a techie but wanted to share my thoughts on our home cinema system. We bought the Samsung HTZ310 about 3 years ago at the same time as buying our first ever plasma TV - also a Samsung. I think it was about £250 at the time and was recommended to us by the salesman who sold us our new TV. The main DVD player came with 4 small speakers (2 front, 2 rear) a centre speaker and a large sub-woofer speaker. We have wall mounted the 2 front ones. The speaker cables are pretty long so you can fix them anywhere in even the biggest of lounges. It has a 1 disc capacity and supports CD/CDR/CDRW/DVD/DVDR/DVDRW.
==How to use/sound quality==
It was easy to install and set up and works well with our TV apart from some sound issues (described later). It has its own remote which we use to turn it on but our sky remote is now configured to control the sound levels. Sound quality is good when watching DVDs or TV but we do have issues when watching live sport. It is not our Sky box as we have a new one now so it must be the home cinema system. It is a really annoying issue as when there is live sport on the sound quality changes and we get crowd noise above commentator noise, it only sorts itself out when the volume is increased and then reduced but this might have to be done several times in a sporting event
Generally a good system for the money. We are on our third unit now as 2 previous units have failed (first the DVD player broke and then the second the sound went totally). We had insurance so we were able to get new players both times. The live sports sound quality has remained bad.
Summary: Worth the money but looking forward to being able to afford something better
