Digital surround mode not putting out bass-RX-6022V
I actually have a RX-6022V 5.1 receiver. The digital surround mode is not putting out any bass. If i turn surround off, bass comes through, or use analog. I tried replacing the digital audio cable, but still same problem.
Is this something I can look at myself?

On the unit, just left of the volume control there a "adjust setting", cycle through the modes until you SUBWOOFFER and then press CONTROL UP or DOWN to make it say YES. I have no idea how it switched to NO. Probably with my remote, but some time did pass and I'm happy I got my Bass back. Quantum of Solace sounds great.

Make sure the speaker is good by connecting it to a known good working site. If speaker is good, make sure it is properly connected to center speaker terminals. Then if it is a surround receiver make sure that the sound mode is one where the middle channel works such as 5.1 DTS, etc. If the center channel still does not work then the problem lies with the decoder chip that is not working properly and sending the center channel info to that specific amplifier.
6.1 stands for six speakers and one sub-woofer - a total of seven actual speakers giving you the surround sound effect. Before it can play a surround sound environment, the media - a CD or DVD must have it encoded on the disc, like a movie that has 6.1 surround sound recorded on it or a music CD with recorded surround sound. Otherwise, it will just play stereo audio - two speakers and the others are redundant. And yes, it does sound better as if you are in the actual area it was produced - like if you were there.
If your receiver has another digital audio input available to connect to, such as a coaxial or optical input, you can use either of those for the PS3. Another option is to use one of the composite audio inputs, but however, your surround mode for that type of input will not be Dolby Digital, DTS or any of the high definition surround sound formats. You will instead be able to get one of the Dolby ProLogic formats, or one of the various surround modes that are proprietary to the receiver model by it's digital signal processor...depending on which you choose.
Try the Technics SH-AC500D Digital Surround Processor. Its outputs should match the inputs on the RX-V2090. I own both units, though I am using a DDP-1 with the Yamaha receiver. I use two separate amps with the Technics to achieve surround sound using my good vintage stereo system (two of them actually - one for front and ane for rear). The Technics is a nice piece of kit.
I dont know your reciver but if it has a hdmi input plug ps3 into it and set audio on ps3 to pcm,this will give you digital surround eg multichannel,if not you must use a optical cable from ps3 to reciver and set ps3 audio to digital.
hope this helps.
Best thing to do is to put the unit in 5 channel or 7 channel mode. That will send left ch information to the front left and rear left speakers ( both will get the same information). Ditto with the right channel. The center channel will get centre channel information.
If all the speakers work, go out and rent TOP GUN. ( yes its old), BUT there are a few extreme scenes , one of which is the elevator scene, where the camera changes perspective and suddenly you hear the elevator doors close BEHIND you through only the surround speakers ( have the unit in surround mode....NOT 5 or 7 ch mode ). If this works ok, then you have no problems.
Remember, surround sound only produces information in the rear channels when the information is there. To check out the digital and DTS decoders, get an action flick. If you can, get a remote too, because that will unlock many features about the receiver that you cant get to with the front panel controls. Also go to yamaha and download the owners manual ( its free !!).....that should get you going.....
Also...If your BluRay player only has a optical output for audio you will need to swap the inputs on the JVC rx-5020v. Press the "settings" button repeatedly until "digital in" appears on the display. Now use the "adjust" up and down buttons until DVD is selected as option 2. It will look like something like:
Note: this may bugger any other previous setup you have.
