It now says RF speaker out of phase...... so I switch this one too. Now i get no warning and setup is good. But......... i am reading and the manual says that even though the speakers are hooked up CORRECTLY , you still may get a warning message W1. Can somone exlplain this one to me? Or am I just missing something?
If that were me, before I reversed ANY speaker connection, I would have meticulously checked the polarity of every connection in my system, particularly those for the LF and RF speakers since I/we obviously tried pretty hard to get that right in the first place, e.g., we hooked up the copper colored wire to red and the tin colored wire to black or white (or used wire with clearly keyed insulation) with consistent interconnection.
But, from what I read, because you reversed both RF and LF wires you clearly had it right in the first place. There seems to have been some glitch in the YPAO setup.
At this point, what I would do is to shut off the receiver and check all of the wiring wire-by-wire and connection-by-connection until you're satisfied that you have it consistent AND CORRECT in which case the speakers have to be in phase. Then turn on the receiver and undo your first Auto setup, or restore all factory settings in the receiver using the menu prompts (see owner's manual) and then repeat the Auto setup.
I've had my HTR-5960 for about 4 weeks and have yet to perform an auto setup because I was satisfied that the 5 speaker sound levels in my room were as even as I would ever want them to be! I just re-checked polarity, etc., using an audio test CD and used manual setup to verify each speaker's assignment (large or small and set the bass crossover frequency) and have let it go at that for the time being. I tend to be a conservative "leave well-enough alone" type...
