Hello everyone! New here just upgraded my old JVC RX-809v to the Elite SC-61. I have a couple question that I'm sure you experienced folks can answer off the top of your head (have tried to search, but having no luck). First off I have yet to get around to hooking up rear speakers for the surround, I have it set up in the "B speaker" configuration, I have a L, C, R and a powered sub hooked up, I have run the MCACC for the two seating positions I have and have two speakers in a separate room but don't want to run them as a separate zone (plan on creating a Zone 2 in another room). I get great sound in my main room using Pandora, Milk Music from my TV and a Bluetooth dongle I have going into the CD input. I, however, get crap sound out of the speakers I have running from the "B speakers"- lower volume and they just sound bad. It's not the speakers because they worked fine when I had them hooked up to my JVC and got the same quality of sound whether I selected A, B or A&B, now not so much. Is there a cure for this or am I stuck with lower quality sound out of my "B speakers"?
Second question, I sometimes like to have the TV on but have sound from a different source playing out of the speakers. Is it possible to have video run through the receiver to the TV while still being able to listen to music from my Bluetooth dongle? I have my Direct TV running into HDMI 2 and then out of the receiver to the TV, I have control turned off and I have it set to pass through in standby. Big thanks ahead of time for any help thrown this newbies way.
