I have all the speakers hooked in properly and all of the components working but I can only hear sound out the front three speakers. My back surround speakers will play when in 5 channel stereo mode but no surround sound for movies or in the cinema setting. The TV and all components are hooked in through component cables. What can I do to fix this?

Try running a sound test. You should have a test mode that will play a sound through each speaker to see if you have them hooked up correctly. If you still only hear it from the center, unhook the center and connect it to another speaker output, say right front. Run the test again. If you hear something from that center speaker, its the speakers. If not, try each speaker output to make sure the results are the same. If so, you may have an internal board problem.
To get sound out of your surround speakers, first off go through the receiver setup and make sure that is correct. Also, usually the best soundfields to use for sourround sound is PLII Movie or dolby digital. Next , make sure the source you are viewing is capable of outputting 5.1 sourround sound. Lastly, it is a good thing to remember that sourround speakers are only intended to reproduce sound effects. You certainly can override it so that all speakers play full range audio, but that is not the intention.
Hi! The problem is, that your SH-AC300 needs an amp with 5.1 input (but no decoder). For this purpose technics delivered SA-AX710. So if you'd like to use your current equipment it would be impossible. The only option is for you to buy 2 more Power Amps (SE-A900S), so that each of 3 amps would take care for one part of music. (one for FL, FR; one for RL, RR; and one for sub and center). Another option is for you to buy SA-AX710. Then all the problems would be solved with it.
