Sorry to get attention but I have a onkyo 504 receiver. I have a RS meter attempting to calibrate my Surround. What volume indication is 75 db? Zero on the receiver is no sound. Do I just increase volume to 75 and calibrate from there?

v.y.

Say Wha Wha....

yup. if you are trying to balance the speakers, that is what you do.
Once you set a volume, just make sure the sound meter shows the same for all the speakers.
Some people run there center channel a bit higher (+1 or 2) and others the sub a bit higher. Personal preference.
When I did mine I was surprises how far off my auto setup was with my rears.

Remove all cables but the power cord and see if it still turns off right after you turn it on. If so, it is seriously broken and needs repair.

If not, check your speaker wiring. Add it back a pair at a time until the receiver starts failing. The last line added is probably shorted.

You have two options for volume reading. Absolute (0-100) and relative (-80 dB or so up to 0 dB and a bit more like +15-18 dB). Look up the Manual of your AVR for details on setup.

When you have set you volume reading to relative the 75 dB SPL (Sound Pressure Level) should correspond to -30 dB MV (Master Volume) setting. Hope this helps.
