What kind of center speaker do you have that uses a RCA cable instead of a speaker cable?
Was adding surround sound to the room a complete afterthought?
Yes, you do need to connect your receiver to your subwoofer, center channel, right channel, left channel, and surrounds... How are you getting audio to all the other speakers?
You will need to give a more complete list of your gear I think as your speakers are not industry standard if you are just making RCA connections to them, which makes it a real question mark as to why you are using an AV Receiver. Sounds more like you should have a speaker bar with a wireless subwoofer in the room and use a HDMI switcher in the basement instead of a receiver. Send HDMI up from the basement to the TV then use the TVs optical audio output into the speaker bar. That's only one HDMI extender. Then use the other category cable for your IR repeater.
But, need to know what equipment you actually are using by make and model, not just by generic descriptors.
