I had two nice BIC floor speakers and a random powered subwoofer that came with the house.
Was looking for a 2.1 AV receiver, but bought a Sony 5.1 unit that was on sale. With XBox 360, Sony blu-ray, and Roku for inputs, and wiring my two main speakers to the "front" outputs on the receiver, I have great music, but no dialogue. A few old games and Roku work fine, but i assume they're not sending 5.1 signals to the receiver.
Do I need to return my receiver and buy a 2.1 unit, or is it possible to get all of my sound to one pair of speakers with the 5.1 somehow? Alternatively, how many more speakers would I need if that's not possible?
Use small words - I'm obviously not AV literate.
