Receivers power supplies are shared by all channels. For this reason receivers typically push more power per channel when fewer speakers are connected. Since your surround back speakers are the only ones drawing current from your Onkyo it should be capable of pushing the full 135w to each of them if needed. My configuration is similar to yours to yours.

That is my thinking as well.

Anyone have this receiver connected to a Vizio M series TV? Built in codes do not work, but I was hoping someone had alternate codes to try.

Thanks.

I do but I use a harmony remote rather than the Onkyo remote.

I have a Harmony Smart Hub. And use my ipad and Samsung Note3 as a remote. But I still prefer the tactile buttons on the Onkyo remote.

So get rid of your Smart Hub and get a real Harmony remote.

I really don't like any of the higher end Harmony remotes. I'm still in the return window with Best Buy. I'm still debating on keeping the Smart Hub or returning it. All the Harmony remotes I've tried just don't feel right to me in my hand. The Onkyo remote is perfect. Except that I can't find the access code that works for the new Vizio 4k TV I bought 2 weeks ago. If I could get the Onkyo remote to control the TV, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

The new remotes do not look ergonomic at all....I loaded up on the harmony 900 and Ones off eBay.

I would try the ONE if I were you
