Question about Yamaha HTR-5790 Receiver
Whenever I attempt to watch a movie or TV in any type of surround sound, the receiver makes a clicking sound and then shuts off. When you turn it back on it gives you the "Check Speaker Wire" error. I have checked all of my connections of the wire to the receiver and all of the connections to the speakers. Nothing is touching and the wires aren't even exposed. I made sure the impedence is set at 8 ohms and ran all of the various troubleshooting tips in the back of the user manual. IT works fine when in the "straight" mode, but will shut off if switched to any of the surround modes. It also works fine when the Xbox 360 is playing trough it, but the sound is only running the the front L and R channels. I have tried with A on and B off, B on and A off, and both off. Ultimately the result is always a little clicking sound with a shut off, followed by "Check Speaker Wire" error. I reset the receiver to the original factory settings, also with no positive result. This is a new receiver and worked just fine for the first month or two, and then just randomly started shutting off in surround mode. I am out of ideas, so any help or solutions you might have would be appreciated.
Found the source of the problem with "Check SP Wires"! to solve it is necessary to check each speaker connected to the device Yamaha on the rear panel (red and black) using the device for determining the number of ohms, which shall not be less than 4 ohms, in large passive speakers experienced in Amfitone AU-027, the result showed that left at 0.45 (7) ohms, and the right-hand column, as such, no.
The successful test ... and good music!

Hello, I just bought HTR 6080 and I'm having same problem. When I turn up the volume, receiver will shut off by itself. When I turn it back on "Check SP Wire" message is displayed on receiver front panel. I tried eliminating one speaker at a time and tried two front main speaker only. Yes, did check speaker setting to 8OHM and I tried to program receiver in "Auto Setup" mode. While receiver setting itself in "Auto Setup" mode, it will shut off by itself. I remember I had old receiver and it had same problem. I did swap it at the store but still same problem. I have no idea what could I be doing wrong. As other mentioned, I have checked speaker wires OHMs, nothing I can find wrong with setup or hardware. I'm going to call Yamaha technical support if I can find there phone number. Think is getting me mad, and if this is not resolved soon I going with Harman Kardon.

I undid all my speaker wires and reconnected them. I haven't had the problem since.

SOURCE: can I mix 6 and 8 ohm speakers?
Most Yamaha HTR's are high current receivers so setting the receiver to 8 ohms and running the 6 ohm speakers shouldn't be a huge problem. I wouldn't crank the volume though if i were you but at a decent level you should be fine.
