At first I thought it was a setting on my HTPC. However, after playing with the "2-4 Level Calibration" receiver setting there are still no tones coming out of the rear speakers during the test. Can anyone offer input regarding what else I can try?
Oh my, I believe I did wire them incorrectly! I'm now in the "Level Calibration" screen again. There is now a tone going through the rear speakers after highlighting both the "Surr Back R" and "Surr Back L" settings. I will re-wire the speakers in the morning.
The Windows 7 Audio Configuration is even putting a test tone through the speakers after configuring it for 7.1. My pride is a bit dinged at the moment but I do appreciate the help from the both of you. I can't wait to finally try out a bitstreamed blu-ray tomorrow!
farkem, the speakers were wired that way because I believed it to be the proper setup for 5.1. I was under the presumption that "SURR SPEAKERS" were placed between the fronts and "REAR SURR SPEAKERS" for use in 7.1 setups. Apparently I had it backwards. It boggles my mind that "REAR SURR SPEAKERS" are not actually located in the very REAR of the setup
