All,

Is there a way to make stereo input (such as from broadcast tv) output to my center channel speaker as well as my front speakers? My feeling is that since I bought a center speaker, I want sound to come out of it.

I have a Denon 1613 and an Oppo BDP-103. The cable input runs through both so settings on either would work.

I see in the manual for the Oppo about the settings for down converting 7.1 to 5.1 or 5.1 to stereo, but nothing about up converting--if that is even possible, or advised, Did I miss something in the manual? Is this a bad idea to even want this?

I've also explored the Denon settings, but no dice.

Any help would be appreciated.

Well, you run the tv audio out into the Denon. Then connect the L/C/R output from the Denon to the three speakers.
You then set the Denon output to Dolby PLii, or dts-neo6, which will convert stereo input to muti-channel output.

You will need to setup the speaker menu in the Denon so it knows you have LCRs.

If its not working, then you need to re-check all the settings in the AVR.

Did a reboot of the Denon. Now it is working and displaying PL IIc.

Thanks!
