There are two ways to get change the speaker config that I didn't see at first. One is the curved-line 'Speaker Menu Guide') button on the front of the remote below the wheel that toggles A, B, A+B. The other factor is to choose a Surround Parameter that doesn't send all the audio through the center channel - (keep pressing SIMU button on the back of the remote to cycle through some DSP profiles, I'm using the 5Ch Stereo).

if you having this problem when playing music, this is perfectly normal 'cos music only gets played through 2 speakers (2.0 audio format)..if this happens when playing a movie, you have to check if the movie (through the disc menu) is in 5.1 audio format which is surround sound through all the speakers..
Most TV stations you watch don't send a surround sound mix so you won't get anything in the back speakers. DVDs generally all have a surround mix which is why it sends to all speakers. What you are experiencing is normal, Bob.
You don't say HOW the 'TV' audio is carried to the RT2500? TV's are usually the end of the chain, not a link in it. For multichannel audio you need a multichannel digital source. Is that the TV or would it be the cable/sat box? Try running a digital audio cable from one of those to the RCA.
Your FM tuner will only generate sound from the front sepakers. CD's, Tape, and I guess mp3 player, as well, will only play through the front speakers.
I've included a link for the manual. The audio on this rig is pretty complex. read through the info, especially pages 11,12,13, and play with the audio controls. http://support.radioshack.com/support_audio/doc61/61792.pdf
Solution to having no sound coming from certain speakers in a 7.1 speaker setup for TX-SR606 receiver when playing a DVD.
Review the cable setup for the DVD player since it was identified as the source of the problem. Best to unplug and plug in the cables to ensure they contact the back of the receiver's RCA jacks. Redo the microphone setup for Audyssey 2EQ calibration. A good chance that it is the cable that may have caused the malfunction and loss of sound from the speakers. The cables can come loose during setup and not plugged all the way to the back of the RCA jacks or a defective cable causing signal loss.
When watching TV or VHS the sound should be stereo and therefor come out of the the 2 front speakers. I suspect you now have sound out of the left front and the center speaker which indicates you connected the center speaker to the right front speakerterminal and the right front to the center terminal.
Just check if all speakers are connected to the correspondent speakerterminal.
If this is correct and the problem persists, try to connect another speaker to the right front terminal to see of the terminal or speaker is not working properly. If another speaker does work on the same connection, your right speaker might be damaged which might not be heard when listening to 5.1 because of the surround sound.
Test the speakers by changing source to the disc mode, and inserting a dvd into the HTS. If you get sound on all 5 speakers in DVD mode, then your speakers are still good. If you don't get sound on all 5 speakers, then press the "SURR" button to try the sound in stero, dolby, or other modes - one of these should give you sound on all 5 speakers. If you still don't get sound on all 5 speakers in dvd mode, then there is a problem with the speakers or speaker wires.
If you do get sound on all 5 speakers in disc (dvd) mode, but not when in TV mode, then take out the red and white AV cable, go buy a digital audio or SPDIF cable, and plug in the digital audio or SPDIF cable from the digital audio OUT of your TV or cable/satellite box to the "DIGITAL IN" of the HTS.
