Re: Sony DAV-HDX500/HDX501W Center Channel
Try connecting it to the left or right output from the amp to make sure the speaker actually works. It might be the receiver that's the problem. Also, you must be in one of the surround sound modes on the receiver and not the "phantom" mode as it does not give output to the center channel.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The powered subwoofer should be connected to the black subwoofer output near the bottom of the receiver in just about the center. A subwoofer uses line level signals and has its own amplifier, Good chance that you wiped out a channel. Put the wiring back the way it was, and IF the channel was not directly connected to the speaker terminals, MAYBE, JUST MAYBE it will still work.
Chances are slim...

I believe that you will need to purchase the accessories from Sony, such as either the Component Input, or HDMI. The accessories plug into the built-in DMP. Your best bet is to consult a Sony Service Center in person, hopefully with your preferred satellite input connection "in-hand".
