I cant get the back speakers to work through my receiver. Any suggestions. I have read the owners manual about 10 times and have used the mic to calibrate the speakers, made sure the other zones weree off and I am out of solutions. Any suggestions????

Re: surround sound will not work sr805
Did the speaker cailibration work on the speakers in question?
If YES, then the program material or settings you're using don't require the rear speakers.
By "Back" do we mean Surround or Surround Back? Surround Back speakers are the 6th and 7th channels in the 7.1 matrix. Not all source material has programming for them. But when using any 7.1 digital surround mode you can get anything, even stereo recordings, to output something from every speaker.

If everything is connected correct, the only thing I can think of, is you don't put in a surround signal. If you only feed 2 way stereo, only two speaker will work. Also if you switch to stereo, the other channels will stop working. Check the cables, the settings and the input.
With that receiver it's possible that the decoder circuitry has failed but umlikely. If the main speakers are working make sure you have the receiver correctly set to the proper mode to drive those surround speakers. It sounds like that is where the problem lies. Refer to your owners manual, if you don't have one usually they are available online for free at the manufacturers web site.
Be prepared with your model number (of the back only) to find the right manual. Yamaha is a very nice product in general and quite reliable. I would look for settings changes to solve that problem first.
Check your Surround Settings (Make sure you are in Full surround and not 2 ch) as well as your Input Source Remember the Surround Speakers will not give you a Full Audio Output it will only give you "background noise"
