I have the RX-V659 which is very similar to v661. After the auto setup, the subwoofer (Polk PSW404) will not work. During the auto setup, the sub works fine. I had the unit set up previously, and it worked great. I purchased a new plasma, and had to rearrange speakers and enterainment center. I cannot figure this out. I've tried manually changing the settings, but nothing seems to work.
Hi can you try this it might work, take off all the connections to your receiver and the reset your receiver to the original factory settings then turn it off and disconnect it from the socket. connect all the the speakers and turn on and start auto set up. hope it works

Does the subwoofer work for setup? That would certify the hardware and speaker definitions are ok.
The PC has the responsibility for defining and sending out something between headphone and full-blown 7.1 though the HDMI. Check your PC sound controls and the "Information on HDMI" section of the manual.
For the radio mode, probably the only analog stereo source you have, read up on the STRAIGHT decoding mode and Sound Field programs.
first of all select ur sub woofersauto mute (auto power off ) switch to off position.
then connect the mic and calibrate ur system one more time. after calibrationselect it to on position. u will surely get it work. if need any further assistance feel free to contact through fixya.
Hello, are you using the subwoofer output on the receiver? Did you turn the subwoofer on within the receivers onscreen setup? this requires going into the menu selecting speaker setup and telling the receiver that you do have a subwoofer connected.
if you have done all this I would try to fist make sure the sub is working. easiest way is to plug a source directly into the rca inputs of the sub and see if it powers up. A CD player or even an ipod with the right connector will work.
if the sub powers on and produces sound then the issue is in the receiver and you will have to play with the setup. Its possible that the output jack is bad, I've had that happen when I pulled on an RCA cable and pulled out the socket but that's rare.
Is the subwoofer set to turn on automaticly when a signal is sensed? does it have a switch to select high or low level inputs (speaker jacks or RCA connections on the back)
hope that helps remember start by making sure the sub works then figure out why the receiver isn't sending a signal.
Most likely the plug is ok but the level control for the subwoofer will need to be readjusted in the receiver, If the level cannot be raised making sure your source being used has subwoofer information, then there could be a problem in that circuit.
I have the same setup. Are you going out of the subwoofer output of the reciever? (it's purple.) then into the LFE jack of the subwoofer (also purple.) That's the only connection you need besides power. If you have those right, try using your cable for something else to make sure the cable is good. Is the indicator of the subwoofer green? Mine comes on with the reciever. Good luck!
For the setup functions you have to use either the monitor out (a yellow jack on the top-right corner of the back) or you have to use component video out. HDMI will NOT work for setting up the system. This is one complaint to Yamaha from all of us.
Connection from receiver subwoofer output jack RCA plug male go into your powered subwoofer low level input with other end of cable, then you need to select Subwoofer YES/NO on the JVC receiver speaker setup menu option, select YES if this is a powered subwoofer you are using, should power up the subwoofer, may have to adjust a test tone balance for multi speaker output also, try trimming up on the subwoofer channel to initiate the signal on if the sub has an auto-on feature.
