I'm hoping someone here can help me with this issue.
Because of the way my living room is set up, I am unable to place my front-firing subwoofer next to/near my tower speakers. Therefore, I decided to buy a Rocketfish wireless kit and placed the subwoofer in a corner behind a chair that no one uses (again, limited options for this).
Anyway, I recently purchased a Sony STR-DN1040 receiver. When calibrating, I always get a notice that the amp cannot detect the distance or phase of the subwoofer. It can FIND the subwoofer (I get the test patterns and everything), but nothing else. My old Onkyo receiver would always give me a distance, typically an unusually long distance of 30ish ft in order to compensate for the slight wireless delay, I'm guessing. However, nothing on the Sony.
I have the Rocketfish plugged into LFE on the sub, but I tried the other jack as well but still had the same problem. I also tried moving the sub around, but had the same results.
I ordered an extra long sub cable, so I can connect directly. I wonder if that's the issue. Maybe Sony's calibrating mic is confused by the wireless kit?
Speakers are Polk TSI400s and a CS10 center channel. The Sony has no problem with that. The sub is a Polk PSW505.
