Surround speakers work in test mode but won't come on during play
Hit the factory reset, installed jamo front speakers, yamaha centre and rears.
during 'basic menu' setup, I choose, subwoofer, 5 spkr, run through the tone test (all 5 spekers and sub work). Select yes and it only plays the two fronts with music or movies. I've run the setup several times. Have also checket the mem lock, it's set to off, so I should be able to program new settings.

it is triggered by the data lines in pins #5 and #6. When installing an
aftermarket stereo, an Accessory 12 Volt lead must be run to the
fusebox to a switched power lead.

On the front display of the unit, you should have indicator icons that light up if a speaker is being used. Are there only 3 speakers lite up, or are there 5? As a quick check, make sure your speaker connections are secure, and then make sure your surround mode is set to a 5 channel surround mode. 5 channel Stereo is a good one to test with. Also, you can hit the "test" button to see if the speakers are connected and working, it will give a test signal out of each speaker independently. Let me know what you find, and I can answer more.
there's no test tone under normal use for the sub. It only shoud test the three front and two rear. ther' are disc you can use to test all the speakers. ( If you are into Pink Folyd, the movie The Wall has what you need to help balance the speakers
Check your "Setup" in the main menu of the receiver. Press "Menu" or "GUI" whichever you have on the remote and go to "Manual Setup" then toggle to "Audio" then "Speakers" then toggle to "Center Channel" and make sure it's on "Large" or "Small" instead of "None". If you still don't have audio, post a comment with the model # of your receiver, I'll pull the book and help you further. Hope this helps.
Check your speaker settings in Setup menu / Speaker Setup / Manual / Config (and then in this submenu also Equalizer). In Config, choose where should low frequency sound go - subwoofer and/or front speakers (if they are big enough). The settings are: Bass Out: SWFR/Front/Both. Also check Subwoofer phrase in SWFR Phase. Check settings of all speakers, they can be Large / Small / None. If small, frequencies lower than "Crossover" settings, will not be put on them.

The red and white RCA pigtail leads is for AUX input
Left set of Preamp Outputs - Rear Channels
Right set of Preamp Outputs - Front Channels
Only Models C3433U, C3304U, and C3333U have a 2nd set of RCA pigtail leads for subwoofer output.
First of all you should never indicate speakers as Large unless they can produce below 20Hz (which is very low), otherwise always set your speakers to Small.
Second, did you also indicate in teh setupmenu that you have a subwoofer? Because if all speakers are set to Large some receivers will omit a subwoofer because Large indicates the speakers can reproduce all sounds even below 20Hz.
So walk through your setup menu, say YES when the sub (SFW) is asked for and that should do the trick.
THE BEST SOUND IS WHAT SOUNDS BEST TO YOU, HOWEVER DO THIS:
1, USING THE SETUP MIC CONFIGURE YOUR DENON, PAGE 8 OF THE MANUAL. NEXT
2. RAISE THE REAR SPKR LEVELS, PAGE 46,47. NEXT
3. WHEN LISTENING TO AUDIO CD OR RADIO TRY THE 5 CH STEREO DSP MODE.
4. WHEN WATCHING A DVD USE DSP DOLBY PROLOGIC OR TRY 5CH STEREO IF THE MOVIE IS MOSTLY TALKING.
5, TRY 5CH STEREO WHEN WATCHING PROGRAMS WITH MOSTLY TALKING
