Surround Sound Problem

I run my TV through my VCR through my receiver for surround sound. It has worked fine for years, but now when I use the TV I get the center, subwoofer and rear speakers okay, but the front speakers do not work. The do not work in direct mode either when I have the VCR selected in the function mode. Weird thing is that when I select the radio mode the surround sound works fine and the fron speakers work! The fornt speakers also work, when in the radio mode, in the direct mode too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Does anyone have any ideas? I took out all of the speaker connections, checked everything, hooked everythin back up, tried different modes, e.g. Theater 1 and 2, Pro Logic, etc., but I can't seem to get the front speakers to work in VCR mode? I NEED MY SURROUND SOUND.....................................

SOURCE: I have 5 speakers and

You'll find that the receiver is working OK for tv and dvd as it is receiving "multi channel iformation" from the dvd unit/disc and the tv broadcast. CDs are only stereo and so the unit will default to "stereo" playback. As the front two speakers are classed as "the mains speakers" this is all that will be used.
If you put the receiver into "all channel stereo" or something along those lines, you should find that your cds will come through all your speakers.
Best of luck

The broadcaster of the TV station has to tell you they are transmitting surround sound - sometimes they are just transmitting stereo. Also, the media as in CD's and DVD movies must have surround sound embedded or recorded on it to allow surround sound.

I have a kenwood vr-707 it gets surround sound on dvd/vcr but I can't get surround sound on just tv.


Well you have a built in decoder/surround processor that will detect a signal with the surround sound info(dvd/sat.receiver/cable converter etc.) and will then process it to the different speakers on your system. In the absence of that signal it will process it as standard stereo sound(two front speakers). You may want to look in your receiver functions/menu for simulated surround.
Hope this will help.

Providing you have enough input ports on the surround run you a red and white audio RCA jack from the receiver out port for TV1 and connect to the same colored ports on the satellite in ports on the surround. If you do not have enough ports then you may have to use the in ports on the DVD etc to run the TV through to utilize the surround system. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Surround sound hookup


Hook your satelite receiver to your TV. Then run from your TV audio out to your surround sound system. This should make your surround sound system work with anything your TV is playing.
