I think the problem you are having is that you are not getting a true 5.1 channel source. You have to be using a digital cable from the source to get the 5.1 speakers to show on the receiver. I had the same issue for a day then figured it out.

For example to get 5.1 speakers from my PS3 blu ray I had to connect the hdmi to the receiver then to tv and then also an opitcal cable to the receiver from the PS3 to get the 5.1 channels.

Read your instructions book again, when you press 7 that mean you are enter in select speakers you must use 7 then narrow UP DOWN and LEFT RIGHT when you finish you must save by press SET
The easy way to set it up is connect your receiver to TV then you can see the complete MENU on your TV screen
Or you initializer the unit to go back to the default mode, which will set to 5 speakers if you wish to do this look on same model I was post earlier how to initializer the receiver

How to connect a turntable connected to a yamaha a450 stereo amplifier...can I attache the a450 to the htr-6130 ?


If the turntable is newer kind you can connect it in any Stereo input like CD, VCR , etc.

If the turntable is older model you can only connect it to PHONO input (if amp has one) and make sure earthing cable is connected on Amp

Remember input is only stereo (unless your model has digital input) and select sound effect eg Pro Logic for enhanced sound,

Please don't panic and think that there is anything wrong with your Yamaha receiver. A lot of people are having this problem with set top box reception. Time lag / phase differences caused by satellite transmission can make your Receivers digital decoders go nuts !!!.The working principal is too complex to explain on this page. I have had clients call up and say on some channels only one speaker works in a 5.1 setup !!!!.You noticed DD and DTS signals are working fine.

Is there any way i can use all channels regardless of source? i would like to understand what i need have as an input source inorder to use all 5.1 or at least 4 speakers


The answer is yes - and no. By definition, audio sources are encoded or recorded in a specific manner. If I record a stereo signal, there really are no rear channels or center or bass specific channels. To be most faithful to the original, you play back stereo in stereo and 5:1 in 5:1 and so on. There ARE several units designed to "synthesize" additional channels from sources that do not contain all the info specifically. Some multi-channel receivers/amps incorporate such circuits and you can "derive" rear channels from stereo inputs and so forth. If not, you may need an additional box (device) to turn 2 into 4 or 5, 3 from 2 and so on. Your choice but that's how it works.

You can set the receiver to any source that uses a optical connection. Then make sure that whatever you select whether it be CD/DVD you also have the source connection set to optical too on the receiver setup menu.
That being said, after that is done you will need to set up the computer to output audio. That usually just involves changing the output mode on the computer and adjusting the levels...open the Acer audio managment application, choose the audio output mode to stereo or dolby digital and turn everything up on the computers level controls. Then, when you open whatever software you're going to use to play your discs you may also have to adjust the volume level there as well.

You may need to set up the receiver for your speaker configuration. There should be a setup menu on the receiver, and that will allow you to tell the amp what speakers you are using, and what inputs you are connecting what devices to. You may also need to set your DVD player, cable box and TV for the audio stream you want to use. PCM or Bitstream to be more precise. Also make sure that the sound output is set to Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Digital and the input signal is in stereo or surround.

Best Wishes.

The indicator is telling you you have a 2-channel input. You may have the Blu-Ray connected wrong. Or the source is only Stereo. I need more details to assess that.

The sound coming from all speakers is normal if you have any surround mode selected, regardless of the characteristics of the source

I imagine if you experiment you might find all speakers playing for any number of 2-channel sources, not just Blu-Ray. Besides actual Pro Logic decoding, the various surround modes can provide some interesting effects on non Dolby Surround material.

I recommend that you try them all on various recordings and you may find one or another of them preferable over vanilla stereo. I find that any given artist or music type, even within a given CD, may sound 'better' with different surround settings.

As simple as this sounds, try hitting the speaker a/b button on the front of the unit, next to the headphone jack. I had the same problem, and was about to package the whole thing back up and go back to Best Buy when I hit this button and then the audio test worked.

You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.
