This unit is not as flexible as traditional receivers are as far as speakers are concerned. Speakers are labeled and *must* be connected to the correct speaker terminals.
Upon reading the manual - it is quite apparent that the only provisions for rear surround speaker connections is <i>only</i> via the optional wireless transmitter / receiver hardware. The optional digital transmitter is connected via a proprietary plug on the rear of the SC-BT100. The optional receiver amplifies the received signal and passes it to the connected surround speakers. I would bet that there are no provisions for amplifying a surround L and R speaker channel inside the SC-BT100, and that it only provides a low level (like a "tape out") or un-amplified signal to the transmitter plug. Even if you were to manage to get the surround speaker connections made up there - you would not be able to hear anything from them - as there is no amplifier. The amplifier is contained in the wireless receiver, and is largely why it requires a connection to house current.
Unfortunately, I doubt you'll find a way to listen the surround channel audio from the SC-BT100 without the optional transmitter / receiver and the integrated amplifier.
You can review the manual like I did here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/SCBT100.PDF
There should be a "module" that you slip into a slot on the back of the main SC-BT100 unit...this is the transmitter that sends the signal to the rear speaker unit. The rear speakers, while "wireless" to the main unit, are wired to the separate unit that should have come with your set-up.
If you go into the set up menu and go to the speakers set up - it only
shows the right, left, centre and subwoofer on the screen. You need to
go down to the box below these speakers and activate the rear speakers
which are not shown. The wireless section will then light up w1/2 on
the display at the front of the scbt100 - i had to call panasonic to
figure this out and they advised me it was missing from the
Basic checks first. Have you checked they are connected properly? Maybe used a different cable to check whether the rear cables are faulty? You may just have turned your system to 2.1 surrououn sound by accident or be playing a format that only supports 2.1. Check that in the system menu under dec. mode that if it is set to AFD STD that you are playing a DVD which shows can support 5.1 on the back of its cover. Also try running the setup manually and choosing your speaker configuration. Hope this helps.
