I have to use the remote to switch it on after witch it plays perfectly. After approx. 10 minutes of no signal it does switch off by itself. I have been going through all possible options to find out the problem, but i am unable to find it. Please shed some light on the subject for me,...
(My system :Bryston SP3 Surround Processor, I run 2 Bryston 28BSST's for my front speakers (B&W 801D) a Bryston 4BSST for my front speaker (B&W HTM2 Diamond) a Bryston 9BSST to run my 4 surround speakers (B&W SCMS) and a Velodyne Digital Drive PLUS 18 Inch Subwoofer.)
There are a few questions that will assist me in providing you with an answer:
Is your unit a 117 volt or 230 volt system?
How is your subwoofer connected to the processor?
What are the main speaker settings in the processor? (large / small)
What is your crossover setting at in the subwoofer and processor?
What is the LFE gain setting in the processor?
What is the subwoofer volume set to?
Are you powering down the subwoofer with your remote control?
