Question about Kenwood VR-406 Receiver
I'm having trouble getting my receiver to play from my computer. I can get it to work in stereo, but not surround sound. Also, my sub isn't working either. These are some bits of info you might need to know...
1. I'm using a y-adapter
2. I've already changed my sound settings in windows to 5.1 surround sound
3. I've done the set up/test on the receiver, which does give me sound out of all 5 speakers.
4. I'm stuck!
Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Using the Y adapter method (i am guessing you are using just a single stereo mini-jack cable with a mini-jack to RCA adapter) you are only sending a standard Stereo signal to the receiver. Setting 5.1 in windows is just simulating (if using Stereo) or actually mixing 5.1 if you are using analog 5.1 (3 stereo mini-jack cables going to 3 mini-jack to RCA adapters using a 6 channel DVD input). if you have a surround sound audio card i suggest using the Analog 6 channel input by using 3 stereo cables each with their only adapter.
or, if you have a Digital output (Coaxial or TOSlink [optical]) try using that.
