OK good thing I had spare speakers lying around from the surround backs I removed from my back wall. I proceeded to test the SR connection with another speaker and the same thing happened. Changed the connection end of the receiver end and connected the SR run cable to the SL avr connection same thing happened. So I determined it was indeed the SR cable I run. I opened up the wall plate for all my surround cable terminate, and ends up the +/- wires were slightly touch on the wall plate, corrected that works fine, whew! I'm pretty impulsive, in years pass I would have sooner just ordered a new AVR on assumption rather than taking my time to check everything out lol. Thanks guys.
