Hi everyone~ new AVS'r here!
I just bought this receiver & spent last night running/hooking up wire. Ran the sound test via included mic this morning- all good- all play.
Issues I have (this is my 1st AVR) is getting TV to play & also getting sound from the rest of the speakers. Right now, I have front L/R only.
I have a 6.1 speaker set (2front/1center/2rear/1-surround/sub). I checked the manual & it says the rears ought to play- even if only duplicating the fronts- but I've tried the PS3 (playing music), the WD Media player, and streams from my network (through PS3)- and while they play- it's only the front.
I can't get the TV on/nor to play through the speakers at all (reg broadcast TV-standard rooftop aerial)- but have a picture fine on it w/PS3/WD. I did go ahead and connect an optical wire between the AVR & TV so I could have TV's own sound even if the AVR was off. I have the PS3 & WD Media player hooked up via HDMI, I have a Wii & old Xbox hooked up via component. I have a HDMI cable going from the AVR "out" to the TV's HDMI1 "in".
I'm confused on the part where I need the PS3, for example, to be running "in" to AVR so it can be viewed on the TV (out from AVR to TV in)- but then it would seem I'd need the TV to also be running "in" on the AVR to get the TV's sound through the amp/speakers? Actually, I don't have a HDMI "out" on the TV anyway...
I know I must have something either plugged in wrong or a setting wrong- but I've been at it for 5 hours now and still can't figure it out. Oh- I've never set one up before (can you tell?)~

I took a pic of my AVR to show, but I can't put it here since this is my 1st post
Cheers & hope I haven't confused you all as much as I am now... T
