Denon 2300 receiver not playing 4.1 sound from Chromecast or Roku

Hello,

I have a Denon 2300, and I have 4 speakers and one subwoofer connected to it. I am playing via chromecast or Roku, but I am unable to get sound from rear surround speakers.

When I run a test tone via Denon menu, I do get sound from them, but when I run a youtube video of Dolby test sounds or something, which plays sound on each speaker, I just hear sound from Front L and R speakers.

Also, when I press Info button on my remote, I see input signal as only FL and FR; and Active speakers as only FR, FL and SW. Rear surround speakers are shown as inactive.

Is there a setting somewhere I can set input as 5.1. I did set output on my roku to be Dolby Digital, but I dont think it changed anything.

Thanks

If your source is only stereo then you need change the sound mode on your AVR to activate your other speakers. Hold down the Movie or Music button and select something besides Stereo such as Dolby Surround, DTS or Multi Channel Stereo.
