Just picked up an Onkyo 805 and have all the speakers hooked up. However, I can only get sound out of the fronts when listening to music or a DVD. What could possible be wrong? I've gone through several sound fields, checked connections and still nothing. Did I get a bumb receiver?? Please help!
I'm unfamiliar with your Onkyo, but is there anything in the setup menu where you have to "tell" the unit that you have addtional speakers?
If so, and you don't select "yes" or "on" for surrounds, rear surrounds, center, you'll get no sound.
I called Onkyo tech this morning......The receiver, unfortunately, was defective so taking it back for a replacement. Tech ran me through a few tests and he determined the receiver isn't working correctly.
